Get Involved


Let’s make sure no one ignores their kidneys. Let’s make them too BIG to ignore. There may not be large events this year with many people shielding or locked down at home, but this doesn’t mean you can’t help. We’ve got lots of ways you can get involved from your sofa – from video call backgrounds and kidneys to stick on your window, to shareable facts and a BIG competition. Here’s how you can help make World Kidney Day BIG this year:

Make your video calls too BIG to ignore

Change your video background to our BIG yellow kidney and see how long your work colleagues or family and friends can ignore it. We’ve also included a fact you can share in the video chat to help spread awareness of kidney disease. Download the virtual background pack here.

Get creative with our colouring pack

To show your support for World Kidney Day, download and print our five kidney pictures here. Grab your pens, have a colouring-in session and share your creation on social media or stick it in your window. If you have children, it’s a great activity to entertain them too! Tag #KidneysMatter and #WorldKidneyDay in your posts so we can see them.

Digital ways to get involved

If you want to support World Kidney Day through your social media channels or online, we’ve got everything you need. You’ll find some great kidney facts, virtual backgrounds for video calls and our BIG kidney post to share with your followers. Make sure you include #KidneysMatter and #WorldKidneyDay.
