Bookmarks for WORD Day featuring Kipo the monkey and the important message that children get arthritis too along with the #ThinkJIA hashtag

WORD Day 2022 Bookmarks: Order yours now!

WORD Day stands for World yOung Rheumatic Diseases Day, of which Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) is one.

It is on 18th March 2022 and is the biggest date in the JIA calendar as it is a global day of awareness-raising.

The aim of WORD Day is to spread the word that young people get rheumatic diseases too, with the goal of encouraging early diagnosis of rheumatic diseases which can make a big difference to outcomes for children. A goal that we too are passionate about at Juvenile Arthritis Research. We know that increased awareness can make a huge difference.

Our WORD Day bookmarks to help raise awareness in schools, clubs and community groups were so popular last time, that we are doing it again!

Here's what to do:

  • Ask your school, club or community group for permission to hand out these bookmarks on or around WORD Day (18th March 2022).

  • Fill in the form below to request a free pack of 35 bookmarks.

  • Once the closing date has passed, our volunteers will send out the bookmarks to you.

  • Then on or around 18th March, you can share your bookmarks at school to help raise awareness that children get arthritis too!

  • Keep an eye on our social media channels for all the latest news about WORD day and join in the conversation with #WORDDay2022

  • You do not have to have JIA yourself to request a pack of bookmarks - we welcome everyone's help in raising awareness.

  • We can only post to UK addresses. Please see below for full Terms & Conditions.
