An image speaks a 1000 words. Sharing your story is a powerful way of giving children with rheumatic diseases a voice. You can choose to remain anonymous by capturing images without showing your face. You can show medical aspects, share what inspires you or your everyday life: whatever you feel comfortable with.
Unable to attend an event in your region? There are many ways you can contribute – have a look at our social media challenge (the #buttonchallenge2020) and share our posts with your friends using the hashtag: #wordday2020. Every like, share and retweet goes a long way.
We often take the small things in life for granted. Things like tying shoelaces, turning a doorknob, playing ball outside or even buttoning up a shirt. We’ve created the #buttonchallenge2020 to shed light on the day-to-day struggles that children with rheumatic diseases face on a day to day basis. Put yourself in the shoes of a child with a rheumatic disease by taking part: Post a video of yourself buttoning up your shirt with gloves on and don’t forget to nominate three friends to do the same. In the spirit of #Wordday2020 – let’s collaborate to spread the word that children get rheumatic diseases too.
