International Kawasaki Disease Awareness Day

26 January – Kawasaki Disease Awareness Day

International Kawasaki Disease Awareness Day…

…is such a big day for us in so many ways. The fundraising that Societi Supporters lead on this day – that’s you! – and throughout January in fact, provides a CRITICAL source of income that helps us in our work for the year ahead, helping us to prevent heart damage in our children from Kawasaki Disease. The awareness raised together is simply TRANSFORMATIONAL!

We’re excited – of course! And we’re counting down!! Join us – make plans – take part – and let’s make 26 January 2022 the BIGGEST CAMPAIGN for Kawasaki Disease awareness yet!

Help us protect tiny hearts! With your support – WE CAN!

We want EVERYONE to KNOW KAWASAKI DISEASE because knowing Kawasaki Disease could save a child’s heart.

Plans start NOW!

Your help is CRITICAL…

Helping to protect children’s hearts might seem like a big ask! But there are so many ways you can help us achieve this. During January 2022, we want to grow our Kawasaki Conversation across the UK – involving as many people as possible.

This year we are hoping to see events raising awareness of Kawasaki Disease throughout January in 2022.

Download a Kawasaki Conversation information pack – in here we’ve set out lots of ways to start a ‘Kawasaki Conversation’ in your community! So – TOGETHER we could make a difference!






Will you help us shine a light on Kawasaki Disease?

We want to light up as many buildings and landmarks as possible for Kawasaki Disease awareness. Already we’ve received confirmation that the following landmarks will light-up red on Wednesday 26th January 2022:

  • Nottingham City Hall
  • Mersey Gateway Bridge (Liverpool)
  • Ness Bridge (Inverness, Scotland)
  • Hoad Monument (Ulverston, N-W Eng)
  • Kings Lynn Town Hall
  • Weymouth Pavilion & Jubilee Clock Tower

Can you speak to your council to ask if they can light up your local town hall, cathedral or landmark and get THOUSANDS of people in your area talking about Kawasaki Disease!

Get in touch and let us know who you have contacted and if you have any luck – we’d really like to know so we can shout about it and share it on our social media platforms for EVERYONE to see.

Help us?  Join Team Societi!
