Ways to get involved

This Balance Awareness Week we would love to reach more people than ever before. We’ve come up with a number of ways for you to get involved and help us to spread the word as well as raise money for the Ménière’s Society. Join in one of our activities or hold your own event.

Here are some of the ways you can get involved…

Take a Selfie

This year we have added something new!
Take a photo, balancing on one leg (if you can!), standing on both, or however you feel most comfortable with our “selfie sign” and share on social media. Get family and friends involved and don’t forget to use our hashtags to show your support and tag @MenieresSociety on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  #BalanceAware    #BalanceAwarenessWeek2019   #BalanceAwareness   #MenieresSociety   #DefeatDizziness   

 

Blue Monday

We’re encouraging everyone to go blue on Monday 16 September 2019. We ask that participants attend work or school wearing blue clothes (with relevant permissions of course!) and that each participant kindly donates £1 to the Society. We’d love to see pictures containing a sea of blue to raise further awareness through social media and the press. If you know a business or school who may consider supporting this particular awareness event, please contact us. Find out more about Blue Monday here.

Wear-It Wednesday

Wear your Meniere’s t-shirt, pin badge or wristband…or all three…with pride to help us spread the word. Wear them all week if you can! All available on our online shop. Share your pictures with us via our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Who will be the furthest from our office in Surrey wearing one of our t-shirts? Or will you be in the strangest place?
