It's Aplastic Anaemia Awareness day on 4th March! Here are just a few ways you can get involved...

1. Use our Facebook Images and Instagram story stickers

Sadly Facebook have removed the functionality to add a Facebook frame to your profile, so instead we've added some header images and square profile images to our social media resources page which you can use to post or set as your profile or header image for AA Awareness Day.


To add our new stickers to your Instagram stories, search stickers for @aplasticanaemiatrust (including the @).

Tag us in your post if you're happy for us to share it!

2. Join us for a walk

The day after AA Awareness Day is a Saturday this year, and we're off for a beautiful walk in the Peak District. It's going to be an emotional day bringing together over 30 members of our community! Come and join us:

Sign up for the Peak District walk

If you can't make it to the Peaks' Walk, you can join in wherever you are by signing up for The Together Walk. Go for a walk in your local area on the same day and connect with other walkers from the aplastic anaemia community via the special WhatsApp and Facebook groups.

3. Dress for the occasion

We'd love to see photos of you wearing your Aplastic Anaemia Trust or Super Rare T-shirts on 4 March! Please tag us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. If you don't have a badge or tee already, you can order them from our online shop, or why not get creative with our high quality vinyl transfers - great to create your own AAT hoodies, jackets or even bedding!

4. Give every year on AA Awareness Day!

We've been absolutely blown away by the amount of people signing up to give a regular donation so far in response to our Super Rare campaign. THANK YOU! If you've been thinking about giving regularly but monthly seems like a big commitment - why not consider an annual donation?

Give regularly

Select the annual option, and you can donate every year on Aplastic Anaemia Awareness Day!

5. Create a Facebook fundraiser

So many of our supporters have been donating their birthdays on Facebook recently and it's a fantastic way to get aplastic anaemia into people's feeds. Simply create a donation page and ask people to make a small donation for Aplastic Anaemia Awareness Day!

6. Share your story

Visitors to our website regularly contact us to thank us for sharing people's journeys with aplastic anaemia in the AA Voices section of our website. It's a very special way to help people who might be newly diagnosed with this rare disease to feel like they're not alone. 

If you're interested in sharing your story on our website you can either write it in your own words, record a video, or we can send you some questions to answer and write up the story for you. You can write a one off article or contribute a series of regular blog articles.  If you'd like to add your experience to AA Voices, email our Head of Comms, Ellie, at [email protected] to discuss, I'd love to hear from you. 

Whether you choose to raise funds or awareness, or just have a chat with someone about aplastic anaemia over a cup of tea - we'd love to hear about what you're up to. Tag us on social media or drop Ellie an email using the email above to share your photos!
