Rare diseases affect an estimated 300 million people around the world. There are over 6000 different diseases. So rare’s not so rare after all. Support the rare disease community by showing your rare. With your help, we can raise awareness and increase support for research. Show your rare. Show you care.
#ShowYourRare is the interactive social media campaign for Rare Disease Day. You can get involved during the month of February by painting your face and sharing a photo using the hashtag #ShowYourRare in solidarity with people across the world who are living with a rare disease. How? It’s simple:
1. Paint your face using brightly coloured face paints
2. Pose for a selfie or group photo
