October is Spina Bifida Awareness Month. How do we spread awareness about something most people know nothing about? Here’s a quick and very easy project that could have an impact if we all do it.
Send a “letter to the editor”.
Just go to the newspaper’s web site and find where to submit a letter to the editor. Write about Spina Bifida, how it has impacted you, state statistics, national statistics etc. Look at “Learn More” on this page for facts about Spina Bifida. Feel free to use the template below to send to your local newspaper. Please don’t forget to add your story, events/programs going on in your community, or something you and your family do in October to raise awareness. Contact SBAK if you have any questions.
