Wear a heart on your sleeve on January 26th. Purchase a t-shirt, hoodie, or baby onesie from our KDF Shop, or get creative by creating your own heart to wear on your sleeve.

Take a picture wearing your heart on your sleeve and post it on social media with hashtag #KDHeartOnYourSleeve #KDDay2022 letting others know why you wear your heart on your sleeve for KD.

Purchase your KD Day apparel before January 15th to save 30% and guarantee delivery on time for KD Day.  Use code: KDF30 at checkout. 


 Fundraise online for National Kawasaki Disease Awareness Day
By setting up a KD Day fundraiser, you can help raise awareness of KD among your friends, family, and colleagues. Share your KD story with them and, most importantly, tell them why knowing the symptoms of KD is crucial to a timely diagnosis. Set a fundraising goal in any amount and invite everyone you know to support your cause.

Donate to support our mission

Every $1 YOU donate supports our mission to support families affected by KD, raise awareness, and fund research. January 1st till Wednesday, January 26th, all donations made will be automatically entered for a chance to win a KD awareness t-shirt, hoodie, the KD Bear, and cloth mask. Ten lucky winners will be randomly selected.  ⠀
