So today, May 11th, is the start of M.E Awareness Week which means our Princess Day is nearly here. We have all been working hard at raising as much money as possible & preparing for becoming Princesses. All whilst being poorly.
I am suffering as it was my birthday a few days ago so the Payback has well & truly got me! But I am looking forward to dressing up & donning a few sparkly accessories.
Apart from raising money it is just as important to raise awareness of this horrible condtion. A lot of people still don't realise how debilitating it is so by doing various events, us sufferers hope to raise as much awareness as possible.
Fundraising has been kicked off today by the very lovely Anna at M.E Myself & I blog who started an event known as #BlueSunday. She has held both a real life & virtual Tea Party to raise money for The M.E Association. Lots of us joined in with the event, not that we need an excuse for tea & cake!
Blue is M.E Awareness colour so some of us have turned ourselves blue with a little help from some clever photo editing ;-) There is a JustGiving page dedicated to it called Turn Yourself Blue for M.E. They also have a Facebook page here
There are various other events going on throughout the day & the sole aim is to raise as much money as possible.
I am rather looking forward to becoming a Princess, I mean who wouldn't want to be one? :-) My daughter is one of our #teamprincess mini mascots & she will be dressing up once she is home from school. She has an important job on Wednesday as she is drawing the winner for one of our prizes, the e.l.f cosmetics £50 bundle! Everyone who has donated has a chance of winning prizes. All the details are here on a previous blog post.
Some great blogs by fellow M.E sufferers are definitely worth a read.
