Getting ready for Wishbone Day?

Can you believe we're roaring up through April already? Wishbone Day will be here in no time!! We thought now was a good time to talk about how you can contribute to the biggest awareness event ever for OI.

The most important thing is that Wishbone Day is not a fundraising event. Wishbone Day is all about recognising and respecting people for who they are, just the way they are!

On Wishbone Day we want you, your family and friends and most of all your community to celebrate with us. All over the world, Wishbone Day events are fun times with the purpose of raising positive awareness of OI. Through Wishbone Day celebrations we can highlight the need for better access, greater understanding and how individuals and communities can make a difference through their interactions and decisions every day. Take a look at this video to learn a little more about this idea.

Be creative! Be collaborative! But most of all make it FUN!  We want the world to learn that OI is no Show Stopper!

The most exciting part of Wishbone Day is the creative and fun ways that people choose to celebrate and to raise awareness.

Last year there were many Bright Ideas for Wishbone Day including a football team,  poems and videos, ribbons and bows, things to eat, lots of awesome handmade items and t-shirts, just to name a few. Check out this Wishbone Day video for more inspiring Wishbone Day ideas!

Join our Wishbone Day challenge by bringing a creative edge to your Wishbone Day - Make it bright and beautiful! and be sure to send us your photos! Why? Because awareness makes a difference!
