Alpha-1 Awareness Month
November is Alpha-1 Awareness Month and during this time, the Alpha-1 Foundation launches the #Alpha1Awareness campaign to increase awareness of Alpha-1 while also raising funds to improve the lives of those affected by this rare disease.
This year’s theme is “Let’s Cure It.” Our mission is to find a cure for Alpha-1, but we can’t do it without the community’s support! So, we invite everyone to help raise #Alpha1Awareness on social media, get involved in fundraising, and participate in research.
We also encourage you to download our free Alpha-1 Awareness resources, such as the digital and print toolkits, and register for upcoming events including the Alpha-1 Virtual Walk 2022 and the Bethesda Hybrid Alpha-1 Education Day.
Digital Awareness Toolkit
Post any of these shareable social media graphics on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram from November 1st to 30th. Be sure to tag the Alpha-1 Foundation and don’t forget to use the official hashtag #Alpha1Awareness! Need ideas for captions? Scroll down to Printable Resources and click on “Sample Social Media Posts.”
Printable Awareness Toolkit
All resources are easily printable on 8.5” x 11” paper.
