Haemophilia Awareness Week

Haemophilia Awareness Week is an opportunity for individuals and families as well as Haemophilia Foundations and other organisations to take part in a campaign and activities to raise awareness about haemophilia, von Willebrand disorder and related inherited bleeding disorders throughout Australia during the week of 11-17 October 2015.

HFA is calling on our friends and supporters to help us celebrate Haemophilia Awareness Week by taking part in Red Cake Day!

It’s easy…all you have to do is bake some delicious red cakes or cupcakes, decorate them, and share them with your friends or work colleagues in exchange for a donation or a gold coin.

You could take them to work, school, have a cake stall or simply host an afternoon tea with your nearest and dearest family and friends. Not only will you be having a lovely morning tea but you’ll be helping to raise funds and spread the word about haemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders!

Then, simply send the donations to Haemophilia Foundation Australia. All funds raised will go to a range of programs and services run around the country.

HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?
  • Organise a Red Cake Day at your home, workplace, school, kindergarten or community group
  • Order free napkins, pens, tattoos, stickers and colouring sheets and pencils to make your Red Cake Day special
  • Display free posters, postcards, newsletters and raise awareness about haemophilia, von Willebrand Disorder and other related bleeding disorders
  • Tell your friends, family, colleagues about Haemophilia Awareness Week and encourage them to hold their own Red Cake Day event!
