Other ways you can get involved in World Blood Cancer Day

There are other ways you can join the movement and celebrate WBCD in your community. Here are some ideas to get you started:

 

1.  Create a fundraising event

Whether it is a bake sale, picnic, sports event or second-hand clothes sale, there are countless ways to create a fundraising event for WBCD. Donate the money to your local blood cancer organization (they may be listed among Our Supporters).

 

2.  Host a registration event

Find your local bone marrow donor registry and contact them to see if you can host a donor drive, in order to register more people as potential stem cell donors. They could one day provide a patient in need with a second chance at life.

 

3.  Spread the word

Does your city have an iconic building which is lit up in honor of certain days or events? Contact them and ask them to light it red for WBCD! Alternatively, ask to have the ‘&’ symbol displayed in a prominent location. Spread the word among your friends, family and colleagues and contact your local newspaper with the story. Don’t forget to share via social media with the hashtag #wbcd.

 

4.  Volunteer to help blood cancer patients

Contact your local organization or hospital working with blood cancer patients and ask if you can volunteer to help. Maybe they are looking for items to be donated, or maybe you can help a patient or caregiver.

 

5.  Tell your story

Were you, or someone you know, affected by blood cancer? Write a blog post, post on social media or submit your story to your local newspaper. Blood cancer can affect anyone at anytime – help us raise awareness and support.
