Wear Purple Day: June 1st

wear purple day

Wear purple day is today and begins migraine awareness month. Help promote migraine and headache awareness by participating in the National Headache Foundation’s initiative: Wear Purple to Work. Wear purple and post your photo to show solidarity for the millions of people in America living with migraine disease and headache disorders. June is an important time to share, comment, donate and be part of bringing migraine and headache disorders to conversation.

This year, we decided to dye my daughter’s hair. Usually she is a swimmer and we couldn’t consider playing around with color that would be washed out in the pool.  But this year, things are different and she wanted to try. Her swim season has already been canceled and she is ready to support, so why not? It didn’t turn out super purple, but she is thrilled with it. Plus, the purple kool-aid leaves her hair smelling yummy! *check out how she’s wearing her Autism Walk tshirt.

Raise Money and Wear Purple

All month long I will be raising money for Miles for Migraine Cincinnati and will be continuing my fundraising in July for Cleveland.  Please donate!  A small donation helps in a huge way!  Money from Cincinnati will go to UC Health and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. You’ll see me posting pictures of events and I always wear purple.

Make Everyday Wear Purple Day

If you are looking for migraine apparel, shop at AchySmile for a variety of gear. Use code MYMIGRAINE for 15% off for the rest of the month and get cash back on your next purchase. I am an affiliate with Achy Smile which means I am rewarded if you purchase. The money will go to purchasing more migraine awareness items and supporting my friend. Make every day wear purple day.

Let’s Talk about Headache at Work or Home

NHF organizes ways to raise awareness at work beyond “wear purple day.”  Many people are home due to Corona Virus but it is still important the need for employer accommodations for those living with headache diseases. The migraine at work campaign has tools employers and employees can use.  I have written many posts about working with migraine. Here’s some of the most popular:
