If your state is not colored in on the map, you can request a proclamation in your area.  There are three ways to accomplish this:

  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.

I’m Ready to Make a Difference and Help Raise Awareness!

YOU can make a difference whether your state has an official proclamation or not! Here’s some ideas to get you started…

  • 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
  • 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 (learn more about fundraising here - link to fundraising page )
