How to Get Involved
By visiting this website you have already taken a huge step towards helping raise awareness of PKD.
But what can you do next?
We are increasing awareness of PKD through social media, driven by the hashtag: #BumpPKD
You can get involved by ‘fist bumping’ with your family members or friends, before nominating three others in your network to do the same. By creating your own viral video you can help make people aware of PKD and encourage your friends to do the same. Share posts and encourage the online world to Give PKD the Bump.
Visit the social wall for some inspiration and to see how other people are helping to raise awareness for PKD.
Show your support by buying a PKD pin badge and encourage your friends to do the same.
Buy your pin now online to show your support.
Go along to a Give PKD the Bump fundraising event in your local area.
Keep an eye out for what is happening in your area through social media and promotional posters.
Charitable donations are key to fund PKD research and to ultimately Give PKD the Bump.
By hosting fundraising events you are helping to increase awareness and knowledge of the disease. We have provided some ideas for fundraising below, but get creative and think above and beyond these ideas for your own event.
Remember to share your event on social media using the hashtag; #BumpPKD.
Arrange a ‘bigger’ cake sale or competition within your community, with participants encouraged to make cakes four times larger than usual
Gather the community together and attempt a world record for the largest collective fist bump. Post on social media using the hashtag #BumpPKD
Arrange a paper, scissors, fist bump league where participants are encouraged to donate to take part, and the winner receives half the money raised
Organise a non-uniform day within your workplace and/or local schools where those who take part are encouraged to wear clothes that are four times larger than usual
Take part in a sponsored run, walk or climb, and encourage friends and family to support you and donate, or get involved themselves
You can promote your events using our free poster templates
These posters can be downloaded directly from the website and displayed within your local community to promote your fundraising event and make people aware of how they can help to Give PKD the Bump.
