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. However, the next National Date is May 10, 2019, for Rare Disease Day!
It’s as easy as 1-2-3!
- 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.
- Everyone on your team will donate an agreed upon gift amount of $3, $5, or $10.
- On the day your team chooses to run its campaign, all
participants wear blue jeans, and their awareness sticker or
wristband to show their support for the OI community.
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 or sports jersey 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 emailing Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift.
Please check with your company's human resources department to see if it sponsors a matching gift program that will match your gift to the OI Foundation.
