THANK YOU for your dedication and support of the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation!  Our mission of improving the quality of life for people affected by OI through research, education, awareness, and mutual support, depends on your unbreakable spirit® to move it forward. Past Blue Jeans for Better Bones events have helped raise over $75,000 in support of the OI Foundation and more importantly, increase awareness about OI across the globe.

Organizing an OI Foundation Blue Jeans for Better Bones Day event or campaign is EASY, FUN and EXCITING! Everyone loves jeans, so your Blue Jeans for Better Bones event 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.  You can use this poster to spread the word.
  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 the OI community. To order awareness stickers or wristbands either complete the Event Leader/Materials Request Form and send it back to us or order via the OI Foundation Online Store to on the right side of this page.

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 and can be ordered by clicking on the BJBB Store icon to the right.
