Blue Jeans Awareness Ribbon for Rare Diseases as Designated by Global Genes®

Our Custom Blue Jeans awareness ribbons and non-personalized Blue Jeans awareness ribbons support this list of Rare Diseases as designated by Global Genes®. This list is extensive to include often under-funded, unknown diseases and disorders that need equal attention to those that receive a great deal of funding and recognition. Sometimes you will see a Rare Disease listed in two places on our website, and one may be associated with a color other than the Blue Jeans awareness ribbon. This is because often times a group has designated a color for a Rare Disease prior to the Blue Jeans awareness ribbon being designated for the entire category of causes.

Zebra Awareness Ribbons for Rare Diseases

Our custom zebra awareness ribbons and non-personalized zebra awareness ribbons also support our list of Rare Diseases. As you see on our site, rare diseases also use the blue denim ribbon. Prior to the use of blue jeans awareness ribbons, zebra awareness ribbons represented rare diseases. Rare diseases use a zebra stripe awareness ribbon because of the medical expression “When you hear hoof beats, think horses not zebras” in looking for a common diagnosis versus a rare one.

Our Rare Diseases and Disorders list is extensive to include often under-funded, unknown diseases and disorders that need equal attention to those that receive a great deal of funding and recognition. Sometimes you will see a Rare Disease listed in several places on our website, and one may be associated with a color other than the Blue Jeans awareness ribbon or the zebra awareness ribbon. This is because often times a group has designated a color for a Rare Disease itself rather than the entire category. Feel free to use the image or color that best reflects your efforts to raise awareness.
