Supporting #uniteforsafecare

Help Us Raise Awareness

The Patient Safety Movement Foundation has garnered the support of hundreds of organizations around the world to raise awareness around patient and health worker safety.

We welcome all groups; hospitals, non-profits, professional associations and societies both within the healthcare industry and beyond. If you are interested in joining the #uniteforsafecare campaign as an official supporter, we’d love to welcome you as a formal Ally or as a Sponsor.

Light Up Your Building

Last year the World Health Organization encouraged local governments and businesses to light up buildings and monuments. The pyramids in Egypt, the Jet d’Eau in Geneva and hospitals around the globe were illuminated with orange lights to observe World Patient Safety Day.

If you have the ability to “turn the switch” and illuminate your building please let us know and we’ll be happy to share pictures of your building on our website and via social media.

Sponsor

We are seeking forward-thinking companies to invest in this event and help us demonstrate that even one loss is one too many. We are not only looking for cash and in-kind donations but also encourage you to create an activity in solidarity on World Patient Safety Day. And, if you offer matching gifts to your staff, that would help us organize the event tremendously.

Please review the attached Sponsorship benefit levels and contact us to go over how you can get more involved!

MOVE and help us raise awareness.

Walk, run, jog, bike, rollerskate, and even “scoot”… and as you move, track your steps, and we will show people that patient and health worker safety is a global priority by sharing that people like you have chosen to dedicate your steps through our cause. Our steps, collectively, can be used to help move our congressional leaders and the media to prioritize and recognize patient and health worker safety for the global public health crisis that is silently killing millions of people each year.

For every mile you move, you help fundraise for the Patient Safety Movement Foundation from a corporate sponsorship pool. You can also create your own team and ask your friends and family to join, or pledge to support you.

Download Charity Miles and help us raise awareness about patient safety while you exercise. Donations made through the app will benefit our #uniteforsafecare campaign and the Patient Safety Movement Foundation.

We’ve developed a FAQ for setting up your Charity Miles account.
