A Fun Event for the Whole Community

Join Team

We know many people aren't leaving the house right now so we're taking the Blue Jeans for Better Bones Day to social media! Create your Blue Jeans for Better Bones online page and we'll send you and any donors a special badge to add to your Facebook or Instagram profile. On Friday, May 8th, wear your blue jeans or a blue shirt and post a photo - let's turn our newsfeeds blue for OI awareness!

Organizing an OI Foundation Blue Jeans for Better Bones Day event or campaign is EASY, FUN and EXCITING!

Hosting a Blue Jeans for Better Bones Day is as easy as 1-2-3! 

  1. Invite members of your office, school, or church (or your friends!) to join your BJBB team.  You can use this poster to spread the word.
  2. Everyone on your team will donate an agreed upon gift amount of $3, $5, or $10. 
  3. On the day your team chooses to run its campaign, all participants wear blue jeans and their awareness sticker or wristband to show their support for the OI community.

Don't forget to snap a photo to enter the 5 Decades of Denim Photo Contest! Submit your 2020 Blue Jeans for Better Bones Day photos all year long to win a $50 Old Navy Gift Card and OIF Merchandise. The contest ends January 1st 2021. Photos and questions can be sent to Christina at cteufert@oif.org or share your photo using the hashtag #OIFphotocontest to enter.

The great thing about this campaign is that you can tailor it to meet your specific needs. Blue Jeans for Better Bones (BJBB) day can be done anytime during the year. Already wear blue jeans to work?  Dress up!  Make it Hawaiian theme day or sports jersey day! Not allowed to “dress down”? Wear an OI awareness bracelet or a blue shirt. Stickers and promotional materials for your campaign are provided by the OI Foundation and can be ordered by emailing Christina at cteufert@oif.org.

 

Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift. Please check with your company's human resources department to see if it sponsors a matching gift program that will match your gift to the OI Foundation.
