This October, stop talking and let silence help people affected by MND.
We tend to take our voice for granted, but some don’t have this luxury. One of the most worrying and devastating aspects people with MND face is losing their voice.
Help us raise awareness by standing in solidarity with the thousands of people living with MND who have difficulty speaking.
It’s simple. Choose a date, place and duration. How long will you stay silent? Where will you stay silent? A pub, school? Your workplace? A party? Astrid, pictured here, stayed silent for an impressive 24 hours in honour of her Dad, which was much harder then she imagined. Thanks to supportive family, friends and colleagues she raised in incredible £2,810!
The longer and more public your silence, the more donations you’ll receive. Don’t fancy doing it alone? Get others involved – it’s more fun in a team!
Become a fundraiser and get sponsored for supporting people living with MND who experience speech loss.
Set up your own JustGiving page, and share it across your social media pages. You might have to stay silent but your friends and family can spread the word for you! Your donations could help develop more advanced communication aids for people with MND.
