May is Lupus Awareness Month
Our National Coalition of state and local lupus groups has the country covered in awareness! Join them in spreading lupus awareness throughout the month of May—on the ground and online.
If you can’t make it out, make some noise online!
Activate your avatar: Change your profile icon to one of these lupus awareness images. It’s an easy way to tell your friends on Facebook, Twitter, MSN, Google Talk, Yahoo, and AIM about the fight for life without lupus. (To download: select your favorite icon, then right-click and choose “Save Image as...”).
Tell your story: Use your Facebook status or YouTube account to tell your lupus story. How does lupus impact your everyday life, your family members, or friends? What do you wish for the future? Encourage friends to join our fight at http://lupusresearchinstitute.org/help/get_involved.
Educate your friends: Tweet (or post to Facebook) a new lupus fact each day in May. Use the information at http://lupusresearchinstitute.org/lupus to inform your updates. Or feature an LRI researcher each day! Choose from our complete list at http://lupusresearchinstitute.org/research/grant_recipients.
What’s the easiest thing you can do to spread awareness?
Forward this email to your friends and family!
