I have been around National Infertility Awareness Week for a very long time – and frankly I don’t ever remember the community working together quite this like to raise awareness. Perhaps it is the rise of bloggers, Facebook and twitter that have enabled people to become advocates in their own way and add their voices to the cause. I am not really sure what it is….but I am loving the feeling of a community that is joining hands.
The folks who Twitter are working to get infertility as a trending topic on Twitter by #infertility repeatedly. The Facebookers are sharing writings and activities – helping to encourage each other to do more. So here is a taste from around the web:
At Fertility Ties they are having have daily tips, and contests with prizes!Their main theme is hearing from their users, experts and Doctors what this week means to them and what would they want to be achieved. They also created an Infertility Awareness ribbon that users can easily put in their blogs, or any social networks.
