The spirit of engagement this year was clear in the posts and pictures which flooded our social media platforms. Our hashtags were used hundreds of times on social media, and our World Hemophilia Day web page has had almost 22,000 views. Equally inspiring was that 125 buildings and monuments participated in the Light it Up Red campaign—a record despite the ongoing challenges of the COIVD-19 pandemic!
We also saw many people share their stories on our World Hemophilia Day website (don’t forget: you have until the end of the month to submit your own story!). If you haven’t already, read what your peers have posted and take a moment to “like” a post to show your support.
Hundreds of messages from the community were posted on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn on April 17. While we can’t share all of them with you, here are some we think you might like to read (click on the images to see the original posts).
And, of course, the WFH posted on the big day as well. Here are two posts which were popular (click on the images to see the original posts).
On behalf of the WFH and everyone in the bleeding disorders community, thank you for your support on World Hemophilia Day. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been very tough on the bleeding disorders community, and the fact that World Hemophilia Day was such a success is proof of our resilience, dedication, and community spirit.
