Do Something

World Cancer Day is a truly global event, but to enable us to reach as much of the world’s population as possible, we need your help.

We appreciate that everyone supporting the Day has different needs and priorities, so there are a wide variety of ways for your organisation and members to get involved. We've listed some ideas below.

UICC has created a Thunderclap campaign for World Cancer Day 2015.

What is Thunderclap?

Thunderclap is a tool that facilitates the mass dissemination of messages via Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr by simultaneously posting to the accounts of those who support the campaign. This is a great way to give the campaign visibility and increase the chances of ‘trending’ on social media platforms. 

For our Thunderclap to go live, we need the support of a minimum of 250 individuals for the message to be broadcast. Sign up to Thunderclap on Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr and join the WCD 2015 Campaign. 


We have five different posters available for your use that have been designed specifically for 
the 2015 campaign. You can use them digitally or as printed posters to promote the Day and 
the theme. Be sure to share them within your organisation and wider network.

You can adapt the posters by adding your organisation’s logo. 

Design files are available upon request.
