#ThankfulThursday: Celebrate Face Equality Day on Friday, May 26th with Changing Faces

By Kara Jackman

Changing Faces, a nonprofit organization out of the United Kingdom that supports all people with facial differences is celebrating its first Face Equality Day. There are many activities happening online and in the UK to help raise awareness for those with facial differences. Most important of all is the publication of a  groundbreaking research study, which findings detail and quantify the perceptions of those with facial differences, or disfigurements (the word used by the Changing Face website.) The findings will be published in the weeks to come.

On Friday, May 26th, straight from the Changing Faces website, here are a bunch of ways to get involved. 

1. Paint A Butterfly To Show Your Solidarity

The logo for Changing Faces is a butterfly like the one pictured to the right. Create your own on your hand, face, or as a piece of art. Then post a picture of it on social media to raise awareness and show support. Don't forget the hashtag. #FaceEquality Day! @FaceEquality

2. Social Media 

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and More
Post statistics from the Changing Faces site on the social media platform of your choice. Be sure to use the hashtag #FaceEquality Day! @FaceEquality and @CCAKids to recognize all the great work these nonprofits do. Here are more tips for social media engagement posted by our friends at Changing Faces
