Could we get a T shirt on a Celebrity PWP
Idea: Profile raising by celebrities
Parkinson UK banner "you are not alone" well some days it bl***y feels like it
Forgive the rant but pls think about this
I know people for example like Billy Connolly and bob Hoskins are private individuals and that has to
be respected. Im not supporting the invading any ones privacy.
But i think Parkinsons charitys in general you are missing the opportunity to improve profile and get research funding etc as perM J Fox did in the USA If Celebrity's are not approached and asked to do something worth while for millions of sufferers like themselves even in the "autumn" of their careers,
My opinion and observation since my DX is that Parkinson's is still looked on by the general public as only an older persons problem and that i see as a failure.
If one Jamie Oliver can create a stir about school meals etc then you / we need to do the same
I could go on, Jade Goody RIP , Kylie Minogue both done good work & raised the profile and saved many lives & im sure increased receipts / research.
its a sad reflection on modern society but people "listen to celebs" as Neil postman alluded to in
"Amusing ourselves to death"
So lets start a list and send them a t shirt.
that's my two pence worth I'm getting off the soapbox now
I wish only good days and restful nights to all of you.
