World Sickle Cell Day 2022
Sunday 19th June is World Sickle Cell Day, a United Nation’s recognised day to raise awareness of sickle cell across the world.
We would love for you to join us and help raise awareness amongst your friends and families.
We have put together ideas and resources, which you can use on and around World Sickle Cell Day 2022.
Interested in fundraising for us?
World Sickle Cell Day is the perfect opportunity to run an event or fundraiser to let people in your community know more about sickle cell and help support those living with the disorder.
We would love to support you in running a fundraising and awareness event. All you need to do is visit our website, fill out the fundraising form and send it to our fundraising team.
The form can be found here: https://www.sicklecellsociety.org/fundraising/
Coming up with ideas can be difficult, so here are a few suggestions:
• Sponsored run, walk, or cycle
• Hold a Come Dine with Me themed evening with your friends
• Organise a quiz night
• Turn £10 into £50 – buy a sponge and bucket to clean 12 of your neighbours cars for £5
Spread the word!
If you are running an awareness and fundraising event or fundraiser, then why not share it with your local newspaper? Local papers love to share what people in their community are doing and it is a great way to raise even more awareness of World Sickle Cell Day. If you would like to speak to our communications team about us sharing your news on our social media channels or in the media please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Make a difference
Another great way to celebrate World Sickle Cell Day is to make a difference to those who have sickle cell disorder by donating to the Sickle Cell Society.
We rely on your kind donations to keep doing the work we do. Every donation allows us to reach more people, run more activities, and improve the lives of those living with sickle cell.
