Global Genes is proud to have recently launched the #15ForRARE Campaign—a social media video movement highlighting the individual voice in the rare community. Through participation in this campaign, #15ForRARE video activists (YOU!) are entered into a contest to win two sets of tickets to this year’s RARE Patient Advocacy Summit, and Tribute to Champions of Hope Gala. A Prize valued at  $1,100. There will be two winners- each able to bring a guest.

Now is your time to speak up and tell the world why you “Care About RARE.” This movement is for patients, advocates, and industry alike. Through our individual voices we will unite and bring attention to a community that so deserves it.

Heres how you get involved and get entered into our contest:

And thats it!

Each place you post your entry is an extra entry in the contest. The winner will be selected at random from the pool of applicants. Two winners will get two free entries to our annual RARE Patient Advocacy Summit and our Tribute to Champions of Hope Gala (airfare and accommodations not included). If you have already purchased tickets and win the contest, you will be reimbursed for their cost.

We will be using the videos submitted to us for cause marketing as well as will feature them at our RARE Patient Advocacy Summit!

We can’t wait to see your #15forRARE!
