LET’S MAKE HISTORY! JOIN NHF’S THUNDERCLAP TODAY SO WE CAN REACH 500,000 PEOPLE ON APRIL 17, WORLD HEMOPHILIA DAY!

What is the Red Tie Challenge?

A movement created by the bleeding disorders community and the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) to start a conversation about inheritable bleeding disorders and support the global bleeding disorders community.

What are inheritable bleeding disorders?

Hemophilia, von Willebrand disease and rare factor deficiencies—all of which prevent the blood from clotting normally—can result in extended bleeding after injury, surgery, or trauma, and can be fatal if not treated effectively.

Why the red tie?

Because it symbolizes the blood ties that bind over 3 million Americans to our community.

What is Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month?

Our community, led by NHF, worked with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to have each March recognized as Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month so that we can: take these disorders—which affect millions—out of the shadows and into the light, alongside other chronic diseases; and raise funds for research and advocacy. March 2016 was the first-ever Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month!

Why should I take the Challenge?

To support our community and let us know we are not alone in the fight against inheritable bleeding disorders. 

How do I take the Challenge?

1. Accept the challenge and get a red tie.

2. Get creative and show how you wear that tie!

3. Record your best tie look, pledge to support the bleeding disorders community, and challenge a few friends.

4. Post your video with #RedTieChallenge, challenge your followers, and think about making a donation at http://www.redtiechallenge.org/.

    March 31, 2016

    NHF’s Red Tie Challenge Thunderclap began on March 1—the first day of the first-ever observance of Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month—and concludes on April 17—World Hemophilia Day 2016.

    The purpose of World Hemophilia Day is to raise awareness around the world about hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders. According to the day’s sponsor, the World Federation of Hemophilia, globally 1 in 1,000 individuals has a bleeding disorder. However, most of these individuals are not diagnosed and do not receive treatment.

    NHF joins the World Federation of Hemophilia in its vision for a world in which everyone with a bleeding disorder has access to treatment.
