WFH staff leads the way

To mark 2015 World Hemophilia day, World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) staff banded together to help in achieving its vision of treatment for all. Twelve staff members participated in an inaugural event to showcase our new Global Feast online fundraising pages.

Launched as a way for NMOs to partner with the WFH in fundraising, Global Feast recently updated its look and purpose as an online grassroots community fundraising initiative. Anyone who is interested in supporting the WFH global mission can now sign up for their own personal fundraising page or start up a team page and raise funds to help the bleeding disorders community around the world.

WFH staff members loved this new fundraising initiative and were inspired to put together a team to participate in an annual charity run/walk challenge on Sunday April 26, 2015 in Montreal.  The WFH team wore team shirts proudly displaying the WHD hashtag #beyondblood to raise awareness about bleeding disorders and the WFH mission.

In the weeks leading up to World Hemophilia Day and our event, WFH team members created a team page which you can see here www.wfh.org/globalfeast/5kteam as well as individual pages where they were able to post their own photos and explain in their own words why they wanted to raise funds for the WFH. Staff members then reached out to friends, family, and the whole bleeding disorders community to support the WFH mission.

The team’s initial goal was to raise $1,000 from family and friends; however, they quickly surpassed that, raising an outstanding total of $7,820.

What is Global Feast?

Global Feast is fun way for individuals and groups to raise awareness and funds on behalf of the WFH. Anyone can join the WFH Global Feast by creating your very own personal fundraising page or support one of our participants. You can edit your page any way you like, add photos, videos, post to social media and write your own message to let everyone know why they should support the WFH mission. If you’re not sure what you want to say, we have templates to help you along.

It is possible to build your page around a specific event, like the WFH 5k team did, or raise money in honour of a holiday, special anniversary or birthday.

Let’s get together and advance the care.
