I Want an Awareness Day Proclaimed in My Area!

Map Awareness 2015 rainbowIf your state is not filled in the map, PANDAS Network would love to have you request a 2015 proclamation in your area!There are a few options for you to consider:

1. Request a proclamation in your CITY.

2. Request a “single year” proclamation in your STATE.

3. Contact your Legislator and push for a RESOLUTION for an ANNUAL PANDAS/PANS Awareness Day. This means you will not have to file paperwork every year! We strongly suggest this option.

The process is rather easy in most states. In 2014, 35 states applied for an Awareness Day and the majority had an Awareness Day proclaimed. Email us at if you will be submitting a proclamation request/have one approved. See our tools below that will help you get the job done!


I’m Ready to Make a Difference!

Boy pointing

YOU can make a difference whether your state has an official proclamation or not! Here’s some ideas to get those creative juices flowing…

  • Distribute fliers at your school and/or doctor’s office
  • Write to elected or appointed officials to tell them what this day means to you
  • Get your kids involved with a lemonade stand
  • Ask your school district to acknowledge and link to PANDAS/PANS Awareness Day or your FirstGiving page in their October newsletter.
  • Organize a fundraising drive or event: every penny raised for PANDAS Network supports our year round agenda of family supports, research, education and advocacy
  • Collaborate with sporting venues, restaurants, etc. to have a portion of ticket sales and food sales donated to PANDAS Network.


  • We are making it easier for you to have a place to send your friends and family! See below for info on our new fundraising format on
  • Learn from successful activities below! Click on each image to be brought to the event.
  • TIP: Compliment more simple efforts, like garage sales, “dining out” events, tupperware parties, or our latest surprise, a young man’s Bar Mitzvah, with a FUNDRAISING PAGE on Firstgiving.

Here are some creative ways to start a fundraising page…

  • Show your friends and family why donations to PANDAS Network are important to you with a “Pay It Forward” or a “Make a Difference” Awareness Day Campaign.
  • Challenge your friends with a Random Act of Kindness Fundraiser (encourage your friends to donate $5 as a random act of kindness)

We think you get the idea!
