May 3-10, 2014
It's time to start planning for the OI community's most exciting week of the year!
National OI Awareness Week, originated from and is scheduled around Wishbone Day, an international OI Awareness Day on May 6th of each year. During Awareness Week, we encourage the OI community, Foundation, and supporters to use fundraising events, social media, and individual state proclamations to raise awareness for osteogenesis imperfecta.
We loved hearing about
everyone’s Unbreakable Spirit® in 2013. This year, we want to take it to the next level and share our
Unbreakable Spirit® with everyone else!
Expanding our community will not only raise awareness, but also create
opportunities for change and support.
Our goal for
National OI Awareness Week 2014 is to educate one million people on the issues and effects
OI can have on a family. We can do it!
From February 1, 2014 to May 10 we will be
tracking the amount of people we reach through social media, word of mouth, and
events. The OI Foundation will post facts on our social media sites for you to share with your friends and followers! Sharing and Retweeting is easy and effective! (In 2013, we reached over 50,000 people with our social media campaign!)
3-7, 2014, share with us how you introduced others to osteogenesis imperfecta. Did you share Facebook posts, hold an event, get a state proclamation, hang posters? We want to know who you educated and how! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to share your story.
