Drink Tea for MND!!!
As you know every year since 1997, the MND community worldwide has marked 21st June as the global day of recognition of ALS/MND – a disease that affects people in every country of the globe.
21 June is a solstice – a turning point – and each year the ALS/MND community undertake a range of activities to express their hope that this day will be another turning point in the search for cause, treatment and cure of this awful disease.
Global Day is important because it is one day that every member of the International Alliance has in common to reflect their dedication and role in the global fight against ALS/MND. This one day allows us to recognise that we are not alone in our fight against ALS/MND, and those patients, carers, former carers, scientists, health care professionals, volunteers and many; many others are all part of this fight.
Drink Tea for MND is a great way to gather round some friends and raise funds for people living with MND. Everyone loves a cuppa especially in Ireland so why not organise an afternoon tea / coffee morning in your home, local pub, restaurant, GAA club, workplace, community centre, garden… anywhere in fact!
We want as many people as possible drinking tea for MND throughout June. Tea packs, which have been sponsored by SuperValu, are available from the IMNDA office so call 1800403403 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get yours today. Let’s Drink Tea for MND!!
