Wear, Dare and Share this month:

Be bold and beautiful in red this month and show your support for those suffering from Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

The Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign launches today and culminates in World MS Day on 29th May.

MS Research Australia is challenging everyone to ‘Wear, Dare and Share’ to help raise awareness and funds for support, services and research into MS.

By doing so, you’ll be joining organisations such as the Conrad Treasury Casino and QPAC in Brisbane, Melbourne’s GPO and Canberra’s Black Mountain Telstra Tower – all of whom are glowing red throughout May.

“It’s easy to ‘wear’ something red,” says Jeremy Wright, CEO of MS Research Australia. “It might be an item of clothing, a flower or red lipstick. I’ve heard of a few men who have said they’ll wear some bright red lipstick if they reach a certain fundraising target.”

The ‘dare’ part of the campaign encourages supporters to do something different.

“There are also so many inspirational people doing the most amazing things all aimed at raising funds for research into MS,” said Mr Wright. For example:

Megan Healey has lived with MS for more than 15 years and is riding her ride-on mower from Melbourne to Sydney. She said she is doing the ‘mowdown’ to raise awareness about MS and welcomes any support – financial or moral – on her journey.

Dominique Chaleyer is racing her vintage red Alfa Romeo at various circuits around the country in support of her mother and best friend, both of whom have MS.

Mr Wright said the ‘Share’ element of the campaign is the most important as it’s vital for much-needed funds for those involved in supporting Kiss Goodbye to MS to let others know what they’re doing.

MS is a disease of the central nervous system for which there is no known cause or cure. It affects more than 23,000 people around Australia, with 1,000 Australians diagnosed with MS every year. It generally strikes between 20 and 40 years of age, and three-quarters of those affected are women.

To join the campaign, visit Kiss Goodbye to MS.

La puissance longue de Bvlgari Montre est notoire, la plupart de ses montres sont en réserve de marche de 100 heures, donc par rapport aux autres marques, le mouvement long-blanc de Blancpain sera plus, 120 heures, 192 heures voire plus Longue puissance, Blancpain a, plus important, Blancpain Les montres de longue durée peuvent faire relativement mince, mince représente l’élégant, facile à porter. Mais vous devez savoir que Blancpain replique montre que la puissance existe seulement dans les montres en métal précieux, la section en acier de la puissance est de 72 heures ou 100 heures, ce qui signifie que Blancpain montres, le prix ne sera pas bon marché, Pour l’instant, le deux tables très chaudes, 6630 et 6639, un prix de 200 000 niveau, un niveau de 300 000, platine plus haut. Mais il mérite ce prix, car en plus du boîtier en métal précieux, le 6639 est une édition limitée, grand cadran en émail de feu, échelle de temps en métal précieux et pointeur, Cartier Montre mouvement autoproduit Blancpain, Tuo plaqué or, indépendamment des matériaux, design et technologie Tout inhabituel. Le 6630 n’est pas limité, il en est de même du lys standard en or, du grand cadran en émail feu, du mouvement automatique Blancpain 1335, ce qui est différent du 6639 et de la complexité du mouvement. Que ce soit 6630 ou 6639, il y a une caractéristique commune, c’est-à-dire un mouvement ultra-mince. De plus, bien que Blancpain excelle en puissance, la montre qui a vraiment de la puissance pendant 8 jours est chère et coûteuse.
