Events held to commemorate IAD vary widely and depend on what is appropriate in each different country, hemisphere & season, and culture. Your participation on 15th Feb can be as small a gesture as wearing a badge, or as big a gesture as hosting a gala or sports event.
“Anything anyone can do to raise awareness is greatly appreciated. No gesture too small. No such thing as the insignificant word or deed.” – Colin Farrell (Ambassador for FAST)
The overall concept behind International Angelman Day, is that
‘Collectively we have a stronger voice. Through collaboration, we can achieve our goals quickest’.
If we all contribute in some way – parents, members and organisations – this annual event will ensure a stronger global network and a better future for all who are impacted by Angelman syndrome.
