Wishbone Day 2011 has exceeded all expectations - yet again! 

We've had communities all over the world celebrate WIshbone Day and raise awareness of OI. Those who celebrated with us last year had plans for a bigger and better Wishbone Day this year. They achieved! Well done!! We also welcomed many new Wishbone Day supporters this year.

Our Wishbone Day ambassadors have been creative in their awareness raising.  By far these are the best Wishbone Day TShirt creations.  Don't they look great?!

Here is Catie sharing her Wishbone Day message with her peers at school.  

And Jakob produced this great video to help his school friends to understand OI better and learn about Wishbone Day.

We've received hundreds of photo contributions and all I can say is that I have never seen so much yellow in all of my life!  Truly amazing!!  Here is a sneak peek of some Wishbone Day celebrations :-)  

Be sure to send your photos to be included in our Wishbone Day photo album.  We're updating our album daily so send in your photo contributions!  For Facebook users many of the photos are available on www.facebook.com/WishboneDay.  If you're not on Facebook never fear, all the photos will soon be viewable directly from our website - so, watch this space!

An official Wishbone Day video is in the making.  If you'd like your photo to be included in the Wishbone Day 2011 video (or photo album) please make sure your photos are submitted no later than Monday 23 May.  You can send your photo contributions to info@wishboneday.com

It's been a busy few days for Wishbone Day with the majority of events taking place over the weekend. We also know that in many parts of the world Wishbone Day celebrations will continue for a couple weeks as part of conferences, clinics and other organised activities. Please keep us posted on your events as they happen! and don't forget to send your photos.

I'd like to thank everyone for the amazing journey that Wishbone Day 2011 has been so far. The support and awareness shown around the world has been incredible!  

We'd like to finish our post today by asking you to comment on this post. Tell us: What does Wishbone Day mean to you?
