National Osteogenesis Imperfecta Awareness Week, originated from and is scheduled

Kick off National OI Awareness Week with Bone China Tea 2015! Bone China Tea is a great way to raise awareness and support the OI Foundation without holding a live event. Invite your friends and family to enjoy a cup of tea in the comfort of their own home, and donate the money they saved by not attending a live event! For more information, contact
