May 25th is World MS Day.
MS stands for Multiple Sclerosis.
Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that affects more than 20,000 Australians.
Of those, 3 out of 4 are women.
One of those women is my beautiful mum.
So I’m getting involved.
There is no cure for MS.
Nor do they really understand many aspects of MS.
But there is hope that with more research they can solve the riddle.
Research requires funding.
This year MS Australia is running a campaign to raise awareness
and raise funds that we might one day
Kiss Goodbye to MS.
As a blogger I am challenging other bloggers
to turn your blog red for a day, a week
or indeed the rest of the month!
Change the colours wherever you want –
your titles, your post text, your header, your sidebar,
And when you do, tell your readers why.
Not prepared to mess with your blog that much?
Perhaps you’d like to grab a button from my sidebar instead.
Or write a post highlighting something red:
a red project you’ve made, a red item you love,
a red picture in your kids’ latest storybook –
use your imagination!

Leave me a comment if you decide to join in
I’d love to create a list of participating blogs

Sorry I took a while to read this, still a huge learning curve when it comes to stumble, however causes like this always touch my heart. I hope I am up to the challenge…I will try, again, just a little overwhelmed with daily activities. But thank you so much for your heart. Aloha, Connie
I have a cousin with MS and will certainly be turning my blog read. Thanks for helping others become aware of this important cause.
