Our Impact – Awareness Day 2018
Working together in advance of International Kawasaki Disease Awareness Day, tens of ideas were developed and so many projects were planned to help us grow our U.K. Kawasaki Conversation.
Only with the fantastic support of our many fundraisers over time, were we then able to provide materials, packs and downloadable resources for Societi Supporters to use. Packs and parcels full of everything from TEMPERS to t-shirts, posters to pin badges and more besides were sent supporters right across the U.K.
Conversations Creating Awareness
More than 70 Societi Supporters got in touch directly and told us their plans for raising awareness! Some held cake sales, “wear red” and non uniform days, others put up posters and shared TEMPERS in their community.
Stakeholders Accelerating Awareness
We worked with the RCPCH, the World Heart Federation and the British Heart Foundation – all longstanding Societi partners – to reach national and international audiences on Awareness Day. Our joint media release was issued from Geneva and London (and from Nottingham!) which made sure we built lasting knowledge across clinical and medical communities as well.
Throughout 2017 Societi fundraisers directly helped make our planning and delivery of Awareness Day activities possible. To our many fundraisers over the last year THANK YOU. Then, on Awareness Day, so many FABULOUS people got involved and invested time, energy and effort to make a difference.
