Interactive Tweet wall at the Commonwealth Games
We’re organizing a huge World Hepatitis Day event in Scotland this year to coincide with the Commonwealth Games. On July 27 & 28 we’ll be in the heart of Glasgow with one of the largest LED screens in the world, all to raise awareness about viral hepatitis amongst the thousands of people attending the Games.
The screen will show an interactive ‘tweet wall’ made of bricks showing negative aspects of viral hepatitis that people living with the disease face every day. Every time someone sends a tweet with the campaign hashtag #ThinkHepatitis, a brick will turn around to reveal a positive truth, challenging people’s preconceptions about viral hepatitis. Just one tweet can change a wall of stigma and suffering into messages of strength and hope.
We want anyone, anywhere to be able to get involved, so we’ll be live-streaming the event on our website from the 24-29 July. Wherever you are, if you send a tweet to #ThinkHepatitis, your tweet will change a negative brick into a positive message on the tweet wall, and you can follow along online as together we change a negative wall into a positive one.
On Monday 28 July the World Health Organisation will be running a tweet chat using #ThinkHepatitis. Exeperts from around the globe will be answering your questions on viral hepatitis with the @WHO Twitter account.
Help people think again about viral hepatitis, tweet to #ThinkHepatitis or text to 01287 244033.
Together we can make a difference!
