A busy week for awareness day campaigns

This week has been a busy one for awareness day activity with five key events. Here at awarenessday.co.uk, we’ve been covering everything from Left Handers Day through animal welfare campaigns through charitable awareness work through social awareness campaigns.

International Youth Day Awareness Day Action

This week has already seen two important awareness days on Tuesday with the United Nations (UN) backed International Youth Day and World Wildlife Fund supported World Elephant Day. One awareness day campaign focused on improving the welfare and prospects for the World’s youth and the other focussing on protecting an endangered species that is also one of the World’s most iconic and loved animals.

Yesterday saw Left Handers Day, raising awareness about issues facing left-handed people and inviting workplaces to create left-handed zones. The day aims to highlight challenges that left-handed people face and raise awareness about the historical damage that forcing people to use their right hand did.

The day shows exactly how business can support an awareness day by highlighting the campaign to it’s customers and focussing it’s social media output on the charity’s needs. O2 has helped NABB to raise awareness about the work blood bikes do and their need for more volunteers to support the emergency services and the NHS in delivering blood from blood banks to people in need of medical care and blood transfusions.

Tomorrow is International Homeless Animals Day, raising awareness about homeless animals and the challenges facing animal sanctuaries, charities and animal welfare. You can support the day organised by the International Society for Animals Rights by tweeting about the day and supporting your local animal sanctuary.

Next week sees World Humanitarian Day on Wednesday 19th August and Senior Citizens Day on 21st August. August 23rd is International Day for the Remembrance of Slave Trade and of its Abolition, another awareness day led by the UN under the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
