National Awareness Days

 

There are loads of National Awareness days, weeks and months. This page will give you some information regarding just some of the topics and some helpful links.

There is a distinction to be made between national days and awareness days.  Usually awareness days are health related, and help raise awareness of cancers and illnesses, and also around these days charities collect money.  And we mustn’t forget all the international days that take place each year.  Their purpose is to raise awareness of important humanitarian, cultural, social and political issues around the world.

Awareness days are both serious and great fun.  They can be about supporting a charity and cover diverse subjects, World Aids Day, National Infertility Awareness Week and International Blood Cancer Awareness Month.  The fun side is, for example, a sponsored walk with your friends to raise money for your chosen charity.

Below is a list of just some of the National Awareness days, for a full list please visit the National Awareness website, the national awareness website will also let you know when and how to take part in these types of activities, as well as giving you some history regarding the event.
