Did you know that May 19th is World IBD Day? We’re thrilled to be spreading awareness of about inflammatory bowel disease but we’ll hope you’ll join us in our efforts to spread awareness and share stories all month long! We’ll be sharing personal stories, IBD statistics, and more here on our site as well as on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) so we hope you’ll take some time to share your story and make sure that every IBD voice gets heard!
Step 1: Change your Profile Picture and Cover Image!
One of the easiest ways to spread awareness is to update your profile picture and cover image on social media!
Add our custom frame to your current Facebook profile picture by clicking here and following the instructions provided!
You can update your cover photo by downloading the image below to use as your own. To download on mobile, click image and hold. You should be prompted to either “Save Image” or “Download Image” to your phone. To download it to your computer, simply right-click on the image and choose the option to “Save Image As” – and it’s yours!
Step2: Enter our Angry Gut Sticker Contest!
We know IBD can be really infuriating so as part of our efforts to raise awareness, we’ll be giving away Angry Gut stickers all month long! Sign up to get your own sticker and help spread the word!
Everyone with IBD is unique but you’re all part of a community that can help support each other and spread the word about inflammatory bowel disease. Help spread awareness by making sure your story is heard!
