At Viachem, we want to fight the fight to bring awareness and to help end MS in whatever ways we can. That’s why we’ve committed a percentage of every single sale to go directly to the National MS Society in Q1. There are many other ways that you and your team can get involved in this incredible organization. Here are a few ways:
Spreading awareness is critical to fueling progress. Learn about this disease that affects nearly 1 million people in the U.S. alone. Share your knowledge with your community. Arm yourself with the facts, and hold onto hope. The National MS Society is a good place to get started: www.nationalmssociety.org.
MS Awareness Week: March 8-14, 2020
March is MS Awareness month, and MS awareness week was March 8-14. In honor of the passing of this week, you can learn powerful and inspirational stories about people just like you, who are living with MS here: https://www.nationalmssociety.org/ThisIsMS.
World MS Day: May 30, 2020
World MS Day is an annual campaign raising awareness, and supporting and connecting the people living with MS worldwide, approximately 2.3 million. On this day, we celebrate global solidarity and our hope for the future. MS International Federation members initiated the first World MS Day in 2009, and have reached hundreds of thousands of people around the world since then.
World MS Day happens annually on May 30, following a different campaign theme each year. Campaigns and events take place throughout the month of May. Mark your calendars, so you can engage on social media and beyond. A great resource to join the conversation is the MSIF website: https://www.msif.org/about-us/who-we-are-and-what-we-do/advocacy/world-ms-day/.
