STEP ONE:
ORDER AN AWARENESS SHIRT
A great way to help raise awareness for childhood cancer is by ordering one of the 2017 ICCD Awareness Shirts. Click Here or the button below to place your order:
The shirts start at less than $25 and come in youth sizes, all the way up to adult 3XXL. They are available in black and gray, and also come in several different styles. Once you place your order, after the campaign ends, you will receive your shirt to wear on February 15th, International Childhood Cancer Day (ICCD). By simply wearing this shirt, the person next to you in the grocery line, at the doctors office or at work, may ask what your shirt represents giving you the opportunity to inspire another person to help our cause!

STEP TWO: 
WEAR YOUR SHIRT TO RAISE AWARENESS 
International Childhood Cancer Day (ICCD) is approaching fast. On February 15th each year, on this important day every organization, parent and family who has beed affected by childhood cancer stands together to send a message to the world… Childhood cancer needs more attention! Watch this video to see how children, teens, families and their supporters helped to raise awareness on ICCD in 2015 and 2016:

 

By ordering a 2017 ICCD Awareness Shirt, that honors close to 5,000 names of children and teens who have fought or are still fighting cancer, you’re providing a voice to those who may be too young to have one. Awareness is the first step in the process to receive more funding for better treatments and research that will one day lead to a cure. As adults we need to raise our voices and give kids the future they deserve!
 

 

STEP THREE:
CHANGE THE FUTURE 

Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease for children around the world, yet it is often overlooked or “pushed to the side” when governments, large institutions and organizations allocate funds. Every shirt makes a difference, every effort to bring more awareness to this terrible disease helps move us one step closer to finding a cure. 

It’s easy to help, simply order a shirt for less than $25, wear it on February 15th, on International Childhood Cancer Day, and take video or snap a photo and send it to media@acco.org. We will then share your photo, the story why you bought a shirt and post it in an updated video and social media album.

In 2015 we had 1,400 names submitted, in memory or in honor of a child or teen who was fighting or did fight childhood cancer, and 3,884 shirts were worn in their honor. Then, last year in 2016, just over 4,000 names were submitted with an astounding 5,519 shirts ordered to wear and spread awareness all over the world. This year we had nearly 5,000 names submitted! Thank you for your order in advance and we look forward to sharing your photos, videos and stories.
