Blue Ribbons

In my experience it isn’t all that easy to get hold of M.E. Awareness blue ribbons. You can buy ribbons of the same colour for colon cancer or child abuse, for example, but other than BRAME I haven’t had much luck in finding any for CFS/ME. 


Blue ribbons for M.E. Awareness. I wear mine all year round!
So I bought the materials online to make my own. I couldn’t have attempted such a thing 12 months ago so it shows how there has been some improvement in my health. 


If you would like me to send you one please message me via social media if it is easier for you. If it’s not too cheeky any small donations to my JustGiving page would be very welcome. All proceeds are going to The ME Association.

 (For those of you who are coming to my house on the 11th, I’ve already counted you in and got a pile of blue ribbons ready and waiting just for you!)


If all goes according to plan they will be posted to you the week commencing the 5th May, in plenty of time for M.E. Awareness week. I ordered the wrong safety pins, hence the slight delay in delivery while I wait for the correct ones to arrive.

I’m afraid it’ll have to be on a first come first served basis and once they’re gone they’re gone. If you want to make your own though the materials were fairly easy to track down via Amazon. Although make sure you buy coiless safety pins! 

Coiless safety pins. 3/4 inch.



EDIT – Second class stamps cost 50p. 50 whole pence! Each!
