Wishbone Day 2024

Every year on 6th May, people come together and celebrate Wishbone Day – an international awareness-raising day for Osteogenesis Imperfecta.

Raising awareness is crucial as it helps to raise the funds that are needed to support families living with OI and helps the BBS continue its vital work.

Here are some examples on how to join in the fun:


Wear Yellow


Whether its a yellow t-shirt,  a pair of socks, or a three piece suit, wear it proud and share your pictures!  Here is a collection of some yellow outfits from 2022 and 2021. If you’re wearing yellow this Wishbone Day, send us your photos, we love to see them! Send them to admin@brittlebone.org or our social media platforms (@brittlebonesociety) and we will be happy to share them.
