To help with any event you may be organising, the Kidney Charities Together team have produced a range of downloadable resources and a Support Pack which you apply for by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately supplies of the Pack are now running low and we have no more printed A5 flyers or logo stickers available.
However, if you have access to a colour printer, all our materials are available to print out yourself.
We have produced an A5 flyer to hand out to people at your event. It contains some simple facts about the kidneys and kidney health and how to reduce your risk of kidney disease. There is also an A4 poster with key messages about kidney health.
Early education is important in the prevention of kidney disease and the earlier children are taught how to take care of their kidneys, the less likely they will be to develop kidney disease later in life. This child-friendly PowerPoint presentation is targeted at children aged 6-12 years and includes information about kidneys, how they work and how to keep them healthy.
With support from Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, we have also produced a poster All about your kidneys with simple information for children about the kidneys and how to keep them healthy.
We encourage everyone to share the presentation and the poster with their local schools and children.
Our specially created event A4 posters can be edited in Microsoft Word to include all of your event information ready for printing or saving as PDFs to send electronically.
Fill in all of the editable fields with your event specifics. Once you have finished editing the document you’ll need to save the file as a PDF which can then be printed or emailed to start promoting your event!
As an alternative, we have produced a blank A4 event poster for you to print and then write on by hand.
If you would like to let your local newspaper or radio station know about your event you can download our press release which you can edit and personalise. We suggest talking to your local kidney doctor for a quote similar to the one we have included as an example.
There are also tips and advice to try and get local media along to your event or to cover something about it or simply raise awareness of kidney disease and kidney health in the local paper, on the radio or even, TV.
We have also produced a simple guide to how you can use social media such as Facebook and Twitter to create interest in World Kidney Day. Further information can be found at https://www.facebook.com/help and https://support.twitter.com/.
SUPPLIES OF THE SUPPORT PACK ARE NOW RUNNING LOW!
The interest in our Support Packs has been amazing but unfortunately we have now run out of two of the key components:
A5 kidney health awareness flyers (15,000 have been sent out)
World Kidney Day logo stickers (50,000 have been sent out)
However we do still have the following which we could send you if you email email@example.com
The pack contains:
The logo for World Kidney Day is composed of two kidneys and three bright colour bars. These colours represent the blood (red), excess water (blue) and urine (yellow) that our kidneys filter, clean and eliminate. This logo belongs to the official WKD global campaign.
