Lose your voice so others can be heard this June.
For the first time Voice4MND will be taking place in June.
21st June is MND Global Awareness Day. On this day we acknowledge the impact that MND has on people around the world. This date is selected for the special reason that it marks a solstice seen by many as a turning point in the year, the start of a new season of hope.
MND can impact significantly on a person's speech. More than 80% of people living with MND will experience some form of speech difficulty during their illness – some will lose their voice completely.
#Voice4MND is our annual sponsored silence campaign where we raise awareness and aim to give people with MND a voice by standing with them. All we ask is that you stay silent for a time period of your choice so you can briefly experience how it feels to not be able to speak.
Imagine one hour, imagine one day, imagine one week without your voice. This is day to day life for many people with Motor Neurone Disease.
All you need to do is pick a day and duration for your silence, register and share your online page!
Take on our challenge this June because sometimes silence speaks volumes.
How it works
1. Register your Silence
This couldn’t be simpler! Set up your Sponsored Silence fundraising page, add your story and some photos so it's personal to you.
2. Invite and Share
Nominate friends and families to join you – get your school or work colleagues to take part and share your own page on social media or by email.
3. Shhhhhhhh and raise funds!
Your page is ready now it’s time to take on your silence for your chosen duration. Don’t forget to keep your supporters updated and share your progress. Good luck!
