WORLD CHAGAS DISEASE DAY

“I WEAR THE T-SHIRT OF
THE WORLD CHAGAS DISEASE DAY”

We designed a T-shirt with the final candidate of the logo created for WCDD, that will be worn by public figures involved with the cause, notably professional sportsmen and sportswomen, artists or public science communicators. The idea is to start a “challenge” where one after the other are invited to wear it and, consequently, give visibility to the Chagas problem through their networks and the networks of the clubs or spaces to which they belong.

The kick-off will be made by the captain of the Brazilian National Basketball Team, Marcelinho Huertas, who will receive the T-shirt from members of the initiative, record a video while wearing the T-shirt.
