Blue Jeans for Better Bones
Blue Jeans for Better Bones is a community campaign to raise OI awareness and funds to support OI Foundation programs. Since its launch, Blue Jeans for Better Bones days have been hosted by OI community members around the country.
Organizing your own Blue Jeans for Better Bones day at your workplace or school is easy and can be done anytime during the year! It’s as easy as 1-2-3!
1. Invite members of your office, school, or church (or your friends!) to join your BJBB team.
2. Everyone on your team will donate an agreed upon gift amount of $3, $5, or $10.
3. On the day your team chooses to run its campaign, all participants wear blue jeans, and their awareness sticker or wristband (provided by the OIF), to show their support for better bone health.
The great thing about this campaign is that you can tailor it to meet your specific needs. Pick any day to hold your campaign! Already wear blue jeans to work? Dress up! Make it Hawaiian theme day! Not allowed to “dress down”? Wear an OI awareness bracelet or a blue shirt. Stickers and promotional materials for your campaign are provided by the OI Foundation.
It gets better! Many employers will match your gift to the OI Foundation. To see if your employer will make a matching contribution, go to www.matchinggifts.com/oif
Add some fun to your work week and contribute to an important cause. To get started, call or email Danielle Cymber at (301)947-0083 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Blue Jeans for Better Bones campaign is chaired by former OI Foundation Board Member Chery Sacchetti, whose son Sebastian has OI.
