POWERFUL PICTURES CAMPAIGN ~ LDAA~
To make a compelling & inspiring video presentation made up of still pictures. These pictures will be of various people from around Alberta who have dealt with Lyme in some way; Patients, Caregivers, Family & Friends, anyone & everyone; all conveying a common message. Each person who participates shall hold a sign. It can be a sign selected from options the LDAA has provided to you or it can be of your own creation. It is your choice! We feel the more people we can get holding the same signs, the more united & effective our message will be!
The primary focus will be on Lyme Patients. Secondary focus is on Caregivers & Family. And we would very much like to see your friends & co-workers and anyone else you know get involved. Each picture is a small act with potentially HUGE IMPACT!
Anyone who prefers to remain anonymous can place their sign over their face or perhaps with just their eyes peeking over top. Keep in mind, however, that having faces of real people, will real lives, will be most impactful.
How You Can Help!
Lyme Patients: Pictures can be very effective images to help you simply convey what you have been through. Perhaps you want to use all your meds/walking aids/wheelchair in your picture or show yourself resting from a hard day of battling the disease. Or maybe you want to show yourself moving forward from the illness, to inspire others to keep on going. Perhaps you want to wear your Lyme green with pride! This is a chance for you to express yourself and be united with other Alberta Lymies! All the pictures combined will be powerful! There is no doubt about that! Think about what you want people to see/know about each day of your fight – so that they understand and can put themselves in your shoes. We encourage you to use what we feel is a very effective sign – it reads: I live in Alberta. I have Lyme. I have been sick ___years & ignored by our healthcare system. Imagine ALOT of people holding these signs! WOW! It will be noticed!
Caregivers & Family: Help your Lyme patient print or create their sign & take their picture. Maybe you want to do a picture with your family member that has Lyme. Maybe you want to have your own picture with a sign. Maybe you want that sign to be lime green! You can use our pre-made signs that can quickly be printed or hold up your tablet with the sign! Simple or elaborate can be equally effective!
Others Participants: We need you to “Stand for Lyme Patients!” Please take a picture of yourself alone or with your family/spouse/coworkers/friend and each hold a poster (either the one provided or your own creation) that simply states “I Stand for Lyme Patients” or “We Stand for Lyme Patients.”
