A proclamation is a public or official announcement, especially one dealing with a matter of great importance.

The first step in fixing a problem is making people aware of the problem. Proclamations raise awareness and bring recognition to  important issues such as alloimmunization and HDFN. This is also a beautiful way to honor your baby and family’s journey. 

Proclamations are typically signed and issued by governors, state legislators, mayors, or other government officials at the local level such as town/village managers or city council members. This is why Proclamations are issued state by state. 

The public can request a proclamation at any time. We suggest making your request for our awareness day in January/February or sooner to allow for enough time to create the proclamation for March 12.

You need to make this request annually.

You typically will receive a hard copy of the proclamation with a stamp of approval and signature which is either mailed to you or you may have to pick it up in person. You might also receive an email version.

Take a picture and post about it on social media.  We love when you honor your baby in the picture such as including their photo or a special location. Please make sure to tag us @allohopefoundation so we can share! You may also consider contacting local news stations or your local newspaper to raise awareness and celebrate your proclamation.
