In honor of May being Brain Tumor Awareness Month and Gray being the official awareness color for brain tumors, we have decided to Go Gray In May…and we want you to join us! We’ve come up with 3 fun and simple ways for you to show your support and help raise awareness and encourage you to try as many as you’d like. Even better, come up with your own creative ideas and tell us about it.
1.“Donate” Your Facebook Cover Photo or Profile Picture In May
Your Cover Photo and Profile Picture are great ways to share with your friends and family the things that are important to you. We’ve created a number of great options that you can grab and “donate” the spaces for the month of May. Click here and pick your favorite or create your own.
2a. Say it Loud…
Increase awareness around Brain Tumor Awareness Month by letting your social network know that you didn’t forget to Go Gray in May, and neither should they. Visit our Facebook page to grab the “Don’t Forget to Go Gray in May” photo for your timeline.
2b. And Say it Often!
Tweet #GOGRAYINMAY as often as you can! Share important awareness facts to highlight the need for research. Here are some great sample tweets:
- Sample Tweet #1: RT if you didn’t know: May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month? Awareness will accelerate the search for a cure! #gograyinmay
- Sample Tweet #2: There are 120 types of brain tumors, but 1,000's of shades of gray when it comes to how each of us are affected #gograyinmay
- Sample Tweet #3: Brain tumors are the 2nd leading cause of cancer-related deaths among children & teens. #gograyinmay for brain tumor awareness month
The easiest way to literally Go Gray is to wear gray clothing throughout the month and be sure to let people know what you are doing. You can also make signs, stickers or buttons to draw attention to your efforts. and explain to your friends, family and coworkers why you are doing it. Be creative and encourage others to join you!
