My name is Jen and I'm one of the Trustees of Alopecia UK. Like many others I'm very keen to raise awareness of alopecia and one way that we have come up with of doing this is an Alopecia Flash Mob! I've been working on this for some time and I'm pleased to finally announce the date as Sunday 1st September 2013 to mark the start of Alopecia Awareness month.
This is the perfect opportunity to raise awareness in a really big way! I know this type of thing won't be for everyone. But for those that it is it would be fantastic if you could get involved! We really need to pull together for campaigns such as this to work and I'm sure we'll have a good time doing it as we'll make a weekend of it!
Please have a read of the survey for further info and if you would like to take part, fill it in to register, and then I'll be able to keep you updated.
It will be filmed, itís highly likely it will feature on the news due to the project we are working in partnership with, and it will go on YouTube to raise awareness by trying to get it to go viral! The more of us we have there the more impact this will have!
As itís a couple of months away there are still cheap train tickets available now if people book soon. We've also got people doing car shares etc and so far everyone seems to be coming from all over the UK for this first ever alopecia flash mob!
Please see the following survey for more info and to register to take part https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/alopeciaflashmob
Once you have completed the survey please request to join the Facebook group. The purpose of the group is to post updates and be a space for people to co-ordinate car shares and give any accommodation/travel tips.
Any questions just let me know email@example.com
Thank you and hopefully meet some of you in a couple of months! Can't wait!
