Sponsored Silence 2018
Imagine an hour…a day….a week without speech. Imagine not being able to say ‘I love you’ this Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately that is the fate met by most people living with Motor Neurone Disease (MND). Between 80-95% of people living with MND will experience some loss of speech before they die.
This February we’re asking you to take on a sponsored silence to experience what life is like for someone living with MND. How would you cope not being able to communicate? Just pick a day, time and location where you will take on your sponsored silence and then contact us on fundraising | imnda ! ie or 1800403403 for your Silence Sponsor pack.
Spread the word on social media by using #Voice4MND and text MND to 50300 to donate €2 (100% of text goes to IMNDA across most network providers. Some providers apply VAT which means a minimum of €1.63 will go to IMNDA. Service Provider: LIKECHARITY. Helpline 076 6805278).
Nominate friends and families to join you. Sometimes silence can speak volumes. Take on our challenge this February. Don’t let someone with MND suffer in silence; don’t let them live without a voice.
