International FOP Awareness Day 2017 takes place in just over two weeks time on Sunday April 23rd and we want as many people as possible to get involved with our #FunFeet4FOP campaign to raise lots of awareness for FOP. The #FunFeetForFOP campaign is now in its second year with last year being a great success - people wore wacky shoes/socks, had funky feet, and posed in crazy locations. An animal or two even got involved!
Why Fun Feet? Well, an important early indication of FOP is malformed big toes at birth. This classic sign is often unrecognised due to lack of awareness of FOP and the symptoms, leading to misdiagnosis (often of cancer).
Here are 4 simple steps to get involved:
Tell your friends, family, colleagues...everyone and share the link to this webpage.
Find your style and take a photo! Ideas include: Wearing snazzy socks, wacky wellies, bizarre boots. Get creative with an eye-catching pedicure, or take a snap of your pet in slippers! You could even hold a Fun Feet Day at the office, or a Flip Flop Day, asking participants to donate, with proceeds going to FOP Friends.
Share your social media posts with friends and followers - tag five friends (one for each toe!) and get them to join in with the campaign - and include details about how to donate to FOP Friends:
Text CFOP00 £20 (or any other amount) to 70070 or Donate Online via Virgin Money Giving here. You could even set up your own fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving.
If you have any questions or would like some more ideas, please contact us. We will be running a competition for the best post - so be creative! We can't wait to see what you come up with.
