Wear Purple Day: June 1st
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.

Migraine Awareness Month 2020
Migraine Awareness Month 2020 gives many opportunities to participate in any way you can. Check out some ways to participate all month. Simply by wearing purple today you can take a small step towards bringing migraine and headache disease to the attention of others.
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:
