May 16th awareness day program – Sign up for educational tools and free brownies

Thanks to our sponsor, O’Doughs. We couldn’t do it without you. 

Let’s get kids and their schools involved on May 16th for International Celiac Disease Awareness Day, part of May’s month-long campaign.


Would your child’s classroom like to take part?


For little ones and teenagers, Celiac Canada’s Kids Teach Kids event encourages their school/class to show support by wearing ‘celiac green’ on May 16th and to share educational materials – even do a show and tell if it’s a fit for your child and the class.


Our sponsor for the program O’Doughs will send class gluten-free, allergy-friendly brownies for the class to share. Fun right!

What you need to do: –

1. Ask your child’s teacher, principal, or school staff about hosting an awareness day for celiac disease on May 16. Here’s a template email (right) you can download, personalize and send.


2. Deadline to sign up is April 14th. Use the form (right) to confirm class’s/school’s participation.


3. Once you’ve signed up we’ll email you materials to share on May 16th.

  • An educational brochure What is Celiac?
  • A letter for the teacher to send to all the kids in the class & their parents.
  • O’Doughs will mail you brownies.
  • For the first 100 sign-ups only. So sign up quickly!

Any questions? Ask by email before the April 14 deadline.


We’re thrilled to inspire you and your child to raise awareness this May!
