There are only a few short days to go until Self-Injury Awareness Day (SIAD) on 1st March and it’s been fantastic to hear about all your plans for raising awareness. A great way of showing your support for SIAD and for FirstSigns is by ‘virtually’ attending our SIAD Event on Facebook.
Everyone’s invited, and you don’t have to physically go anywhere or do anything. Just click on ‘attend’ and you’ll help support the global day :)
Thank you to everyone across the world who has so far bought our awareness wristbands and key rings. We’ve been overwhelmed by the response and everyone loves the funky new colours.
We’re very sorry that if you’re outside of the UK then it’s too late to receive a wristband in time for SIAD, but we work to raise awareness about self-injury all through the year, and many people wear their wristbands and display their key rings for months, so we’ll continue selling them even after SIAD.
If you’re in the UK then you can still receive a wristband in time for SIAD if you order now!
Wedge has created some super new blue or grey / purple SIAD posters for you. They’re free to download and print right now from our SIAD page, so please print a few and stick ’em up wherever you can before Tuesday.
We love hearing from you about your awareness raising activities, and about what SIAD means to you, so please do contact us on our blog, Twitter, Facebook Page and Facebook Group, Tumblr, Bebo or MySpace if you’d like to share your thoughts.
Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you on our Facebook SIAD Event page,
Jules and Wedge
