World Sepsis Day is tomorrow!

With this post, we want to give you some ideas for posts for social media, be it Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, or something else entirely.

Additionally, we encourage you to show support for World Sepsis Day by changing your profile picture on Facebook to one featuring one of our World Sepsis Day Frames.

To do so, follow these easy steps:

  1. Go to your Facebook Profile

  2. Click on your profile picture

  3. Click on “Add Frame”

  4. Search for World Sepsis Day

  5. Select a frame you like and click on “Use as Profile Picture”

Your picture will automatically revert to your normal profile picture after a week.


For social media, you can use the following posts, either with or without a new WSD Infographic, although most work better with. All posts are 280 characters or less, meaning they work on Twitter effortlessly:
