28 Jul Back in and Ready to Blog! UOAA Ostomy Day!
I can’t believe I haven’t blogged in over a week! I’ve had so many things to talk about!
So normally, I log in to the blog through a bookmarked linked. Last week I ended up having to take my laptop in to get fixed and I thoughttt I had emailed the link to myself so I could access it from another computer. Apparently, I didn’t. I had no way of getting in!
Finally, after giving up myself, I emailed John, from IDEAS, to get me the link. He had been busy with some stuff [like his sister getting married, congrats!] so I didn’t want to bug him. Instead of actually getting me the link, however, he thought THIS would be funny instead. Thanksssssss John.
Unfortunately, while I was “gone” I wasn’t able to blog about the awesome #ostomyday put on by the UOAA with help from C3Life and all the ostomates who helped spread the word. For those who didn’t see it, Ostomy Day was a social media awareness day run by the UOAA where people were asked to change their facebook pictures to the UOAA logo and change their facebook status to support the day. Twitter users were asked to create tweets using the #ostomyday tag in order to spread awareness. As well, C3Life said they would donate $1 to the UOAA for every #ostomyday tweet made. The event seemed to work really well as the UOAA raised over $2,500! Not only that buttt the famous Alyssa Milano tweeted about ostomy day herself to her over 950k followers! How cool is that?
Well done guys!
Anywaysss, I have a bunch of other things I want to blog about, but I just wanted to let you know what was going on!
