Blogging for Invisible Illness Week
The worldwide event is held annually to bring together people who live with invisible chronic illness — and those who care about them.
If you have a blog or other social networking platform, you can share information and lend encouragement about life with chronic illness by participating in Blogging for Invisible Illness Week. You can post your articles throughout the month of September. Family members, friends, and caregivers are encouraged to participate.
Please visit Blogging for Invisible Illness Week for complete details.
The Anonymous Sticky Note Project
This year, people around the world are participating by leaving anonymous sticky notes with words of encouragement — anywhere they can imagine — from bathroom mirrors to public locations to the magazines in waiting rooms. The idea is to remind people that they are not alone and there are people who understand the realities of life with invisible illness.
It’s easy, it’s free, and it will make someone’s day. Create your own “Each One Can Reach One” moment.
