ARE YOU ON FACEBOOK OR TWITTER?
Have you seen this?
Or have you figured out whether you’re a ‘Brainiac’ super hero on the Brain Super Hero quiz?
Now that we have your attention, are you curious what this is all about?
We’ve been spreading the brain injury awareness word this Brain Injury Awareness Month, with different #areyouaware Tweets and Facebook posts every day. There’s also an areyouaware.ca site!
What’s a ‘#’?
A ‘#’ is a hashtag. It’s a way to search for other Facebook or Twitter posts with the same hashtag. It’s also how online campaigns go viral, so we want as many #areyouaware hashtags out there as possible! (We’re also using #braininjury as opposed to ‘brain injury’ in our posts for the same reason.)
Ok. What can I do?
Write your own #areyouaware messages!
If you’re on Facebook or Twitter, and want to spread some brain injury awareness, write your own #areyouaware posts, in your own words – such as:
- No one can see my #braininjury, but I live with it everyday #areyouaware
- My wife’s #braininjury has impacted our whole family #areyouaware
- I’m not a #braininjury survivor. I’m a #braininjury thriver!
- If you are writing your own messages, we’d love it if you mention us so we can see how you’re spreading the word – just add @braininjuryTO to your Tweet or write @Brain Injury Society of Toronto to mention us on Facebook!
June is Brain Injury Awareness Month
Spread the #areyouaware message!
