There's some campaigning going on in the Lyme community just now - started and very carefully planned via a facebook group, some determined Lyme disease sufferers have launched #LymeDiseaseChallenge - a cyber campaign aimed at spreading awareness and increasing knowledge of Lyme Disease; as well as raising money for ILADS - International Lyme and Associated Diseases Association (money raised will go to ILADSEF - their educational fund).  See below for further information on the charity and on how to donate.

The #LymeDiseaseChallenge doesn't require a personal invitation, so I nominate everyone reading to take part, or to make a donation to ILADS.

The challenge is easy - 

1.Take a bite out of a lime & share the photo on your own facebook page or other social media outlets  - if there's no photo, it didn't happen! The funnier, the better; you may want to take a series of photos for a mini collage! Please remember to hashtag #takeabiteoutoflyme 

2.Share a fact - help spread information about Lyme Disease
(For some facts, see: )

3.Pass it on!  Nominate 3 friends to #takeabiteoutoflyme and support Lyme Disease Awareness

Please consider making a donation to ILADS, and international charity voted for by Lyme sufferers to benefit from this awareness campaign.  Find out more here:

You can also share, reblog, retweet, or just join in if you feel like it - 

It's an open invitation!

Please help us beat Lyme Disease! 

(I'm posting my photos frame by frame so I can nominate more people and add another fact each day - so watch this space........!)
