World Kidney Day is nearly here!
Thank you for helping us bring together millions of people across the world to unite with one powerful voice to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle to keep the kidneys healthy, what can be done to protect kidneys before disease strikes, and to assist patients who already have kidney disease. This year there is a focus on kidney disease and obesity.
We hope that this Support Pack will help with whatever activity you may be organising. The pack contains
- A4 kidney health awareness posters
- Double-sided A5 kidney health awareness flyers (let us know if you need more)
- World Kidney Day logo stickers (48 per A4 page – let us know if you need more)
- A4 poster to help advertise your event*
- A letter to your local MP to raise awareness and even invite them to your event*
- A sample press release to get local media along to your event or cover something about it in the local paper, on the radio or even, TV*
- 2 ‘How to Guides’ – A Guide to Working with the Media’ and ‘A Guide to Using Social Media’ to help get the press interested and also spread the message far and wide
*these are also on the website for you to customise and print out
Further details on getting involved are available on the UK website www.worldkidneyday.co.uk along
with more ideas for activities and additional downloadable resources.
We would love to hear about what you have planned, so please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and post details and photos on the World Kidney Day UK Facebook page (www.facebook.com/worldkidneydayuk). It would be great if you could also add your event to the global activities map at http://www.worldkidneyday.org/2017-campaign/worldwide-events/.
