Home >> Get Involved >> October 2016 - Dysautonomia Awareness Month



Dysautonomia International is planning its fifth global Dysautonomia Awareness Month campaign. Here's how you can get involved!

PLAN AN EVENT
For event ideas, check out our Cupcakes for a Cure, Dress Down Day and Fundraiser Ideas pages.

HOST AN ONLINE FUNDRAISER
If you can't plan an event, consider hosting your own online fundraiser for Dysautonomia International using First Giving. You can specify whether you want the money to go to our POTS Research Fund or our general fund, which supports physician education, awareness projects and patient empowerment programs.

OBTAIN A PROCLAMATION
Ask your elected officials in village, town, county or state government to recognize Dysautonomia Awareness Month with a Proclamation.

TURN THE TOWN TURQUOISE
Do you have buildings or monuments in your community or a nearby city that light up for different events or celebrations? Contact Natacha Pires at npires@dysautonomiainternational.org for a lighting request letter. Let's turn the town turquoise throughout the month of October!

SHARE OUR AWARENESS POSTS
"Like" Dysautonomia International's Facebook page. We'll post awareness facts every day in October. Share them on your social media accounts to help raise awareness. Ask your friends and family to "Like" our page too to show their support.

WEAR AWARENESS GEAR
Buy some Dysautonomia International Awareness Gear and wear it with pride. People will ask you about your gear and then you can tell them about dysautonomia.

SEEK PRESS COVERAGE
Ask your local newspapers to do a story on dysautonomia, or write an article for your school newspaper about it. Check out our Press Room for story ideas.

EDUCATE DOCTORS
Print out information kits on dysautonomia and drop them off to local doctors offices.

ATTEND AN EVENT
Once we have the October 2016 Dysautonomia Awareness Month events planned, we will post a link to an events listing here.

TWEET
Participate in the Dysautonomia Awareness Tweet-A-Thon. We will post details here closer to October.
