Hello friends and supporters of the fun and frolic that is autoimmune disease awareness raising. Here are a few updates on the goings on. Click here for Schedule of Events: https://findthecommonthread.com/pj-day-2013-march-1st/
We are getting some great media interest and it makes me so happy that the people with the power to transport our message of hope and determination are giving us the time to make that message heard. On Thursday Feb 21, I’m doing a live interview with Dr. Diane Dike PhD from Colorado, and maybe we can get some of our friends in the US to join us in their pajamas (you can listen here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/dr-diane-dike/2013/02/21/eliminating-autoimmunity-together–one-pajama-at-a-time.) There are so many of us out there, remember one in five, and if we all decide to be brave (not like it hasn’t happened before) and just wear our PJ’s out in public, people will notice. If we alone wear them, people will notice. But if we wear them along with our families and friends, imagine the ripple we’ll cause. That ripple will be nothing compared to the game changing wave once we learn that a common thread to autoimmunity has been discovered and we’re moments away from a cure. Complete and total game changer.
On Feb 27th I’m going to do a little interview with CTV Morning News to get that group of people excited about the possibility of being involved in something fun that could also be the spark that leads to salvation for millions.
Then it’s The Day – March 1st. We have City TV’s Breakfast Television coming up for the morning fun times, and then the day will be filled with various PJ events and topped off with our evening show at the Activity Center.
We need as many people as our little town can muster out in their PJ’s for the filming of BT. It’s early folks. I know this is a tough one for Jasper, but it’s only because this town is so absolutely amazing at jumping in when it counts that we have the success we have in only one year. It is now confirmed that BT will be shooting from the driveway from the Firehall (the new one.) We will have a Pancake Breakfast going on site to raise money for the MS Society and make getting out of bed and stumbling to the fire hall that much easier. The show will be filled with locals doing all sorts of PJ things. It will revolve around a discussion about autoimmune disease… not this one or that one, but autoimmune disease as a whole. This is what makes this day special. We can drop our special disease titles and be one for a day since all of us are dealing with the same essential problem, an immune system gone haywire.
Breakfast TV will start at 5:30 am – yup AM – but the early birds can get there even a few minutes earlier, and it will go until 9:00 amThere will be Yoga, Dance, Singing, the Randal Scott Band, Chef Elizabeth Prinz, and other surprises.
Our evening show will take place at the Activity Center and start at 7:30pm. Admission is free but you can donate some money to help us pay for the incidentals. We are also starting some other projects that will raise money but we need money to start making money, so every bit helps. If you want to raise money and don’t want to give it to us, give it to your favourite charity that already supports autoimmune disease. We just want this whole insane ride to stop, so whoever can stop it first, give’er.
We will post again with more details on the day’s events, so stay tuned. Let the games begin, and giant thanks for all the people, groups, businesses and organizations who are supporting us. The list is long and I will be writing a separate page with the thank yous but you are making me personally feel very proud to be part of this community and this race, and showing me that all the ugly stuff we see on the news can be easily overshadowed with kindness and love.
IF YOU’RE NEW HERE AND WANT TO JOIN THE PJ REVOLUTION, PLEASE TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR PJ FROLIC AND SEND THEM TO US AFTER THE FACT. LET US KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND WHERE THE PHOTO IS TAKEN. THE MORE WE HAVE THE STRONGER OUR VOICE IS NEXT TIME AROUND. LET’S SEE THAT TIPPING POINT TOGETHER, ALL DRESSED IN OUR PAJAMAS.
