Campaigning on behalf of the #MillionsMissing
#MillionsMissing is coming back to Birmingham.
We are calling on all our supporters, friends, family members, caregivers and those with M.E. if they happen to be well enough on the day, to join us in Birmingham and raise awareness of the millions of people around the globe who have M.E. and may be hidden from view, and the millions of missing pounds that are needed for research into the illness, it’s causes and possible future treatment.
Everyone attending the event is encouraged to take a pair of shoes to represent those who are too ill to attend. Attach a label to the pair of shoes and ask the person your shoes represent to add a short message giving the following information:
Their first name
How long they have been ill
What they are missing because of M.E.
The visual impact of many empt pairs of shoes lined up for all to see, is a strong one, and sends a clear message to those who pass by.
