What originally started in 2016 as the Red Tie Campaign, has grown and evolved into a month-long celebration of the bleeding disorders community. Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month (BDAM), NHF invites members, friends, and supporters of the bleeding disorders community to join us in raising critical awareness and funds to improve the lives of those affected.

#BDAM and the Red Tie Campaign

Although the Red Tie remains the most recognizable symbol of the bleeding disorders community, it's those impacted that are our greatest symbols of resilience, hope, change, and impact.

Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month depends on YOU. Through a variety of ways to show your support and raise awareness, we hope to count YOU in for the month of March.
