We are only ONE week away from World Encephalitis Day on Wednesday, 22nd February.

As we enter the final stretch, we are busy working around the clock to make this year's awareness campaign as successful as possible.

We are very grateful to each and every one of you who has lit up a building, ordered a t-shirt or told us about your plans for the big day. Thank you!

So, how can you get involved and help us to raise awareness of encephalitis?

Here are a few of the ways you can join in:

Niagara Falls will be going #Red4WED

Light up a Landmark

We now have 181 landmarks in 28 countries that will be lighting up red on World Encephalitis Day.

There is still time if you want to approach a landmark in the town or city where you live to join our awareness campaign! 

Visit our website to see the full list of landmarks going #Red4WED and for some tips on approaching a building or monument in your area.

Landmark gatherings

There are also special World Encephalitis Day gatherings which are starting to be planned by supporters. Our hope is that supporters will agree to be a point of contact for others at different venues.

If you are interested in hosting a gathering, please get in touch.

Go #Red4WED

On World Encephalitis Day, we will be asking everyone to wear something red, share their photos on social media and talk about why it is important to know about encephalitis.

Our #Red4WED social media campaign is a fun, creative way for you to help raise awareness of encephalitis. 

You can be as creative as you like when it comes to going #Red4WED! Maybe you own a nice red tie and pocket square suit combo? Or want to turn heads in a pair of red shoes? Maybe you are the proud owner of a red-coloured novelty hat which hasn't seen light of day for several years? Or.... simply... you want to wear one of our official World Encephalitis Day t-shirts or a dress (or both!). 

However you choose to do it.. the important thing is to tag us in on the relevant social media channel and use the relevant social media hashtags, #Red4WED, #WorldEncephalitisDay and #encephalitis

Virtual Gathering

Why not join our special World Encephalitis Day virtual gathering and meet other supporters from all over the globe?

We are holding a virtual gathering on Wednesday, 22nd February, at 8pm GMT and would love people to join us wherever they live in the world!

Please get in touch if you would like to join us.
