Photography. Drawings. Illustrated cartoons. Original songs. Spoken word prose. Workplace fundraisers. Tattoos. Awareness events. Customized toilet paper rolls.
There’s so many ways to show why you’re in the fight and add to the One Million Strong Collection.
Remember – it can be as easy as posting a #StrongArmSelfie! But, if you’re a little more creative, let’s see what you’ve got. To get inspired, read through some of our featured stories.
(To get featured, create your idea & post it online with the #OMSCollection hashtag. We’ll be watching the feeds and get in touch if you’re chosen to be one of our featured stories and in the running to receive one of our amazing prizes!)
