School Bag Campaign

The School Bag Campaign was the idea of a brilliant 22q mother who suggested sending an awareness letter home in every child’s backpack at local schools. This is a very effective and inexpensive way to generate awareness for 22q Syndromes.

This sample School Bag Letter serves as a template. If you wish to participate in the School Bag campaign, please email info@22q.org with your personal version of this letter. Once approved, we will send you a PDF copy of your letter on the official foundation letterhead so that you may print as many copies as you wish for distribution.
