Sometimes Silence Speaks Volumes
Imagine not being able to say ‘I Love You’. February is the month of love where couples from across the world openly celebrate their affection for each other. But imagine not being able to say ‘I Love You’ this Valentine’s Day. Most people with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) can’t. Between 80-95% of people living with MND will experience some loss of speech before they die.
This February we are once again running our sponsored silence campaign #Voice4MND. All we ask is that you stay silent for a minimum of 30 minutes so you can experience what it would be like to lose your voice.
All you have to do is to pick a day, time and location where you will take on your sponsored silence. Sponsor cards are available from our office, just email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can text MND to 50300 to donate €2 (100% of text goes to IMNDA across most network providers. Some providers apply VAT which means a minimum of €1.63 will go to IMNDA. Service Provider: LIKECHARITY. Helpline 076 6805278).
Spread awareness by sharing your sponsored silence on social media by using #Voice4MND or change your profile picture to you holding our downloadable banner below!
Nominate friends and families to join you. Sometimes silence can speak volumes. Take on our challenge this February.
Don’t let someone with MND suffer in silence; don’t let them live without a voice.#Voice4MND Banner
