Not sure this is in the right place to post this but recently I bought some
t-shirts fom the Parkinsons shop online. Because they were
only £5 each I thought they MUST be rubbish which would
lose all shape in the wash.
To my pleasant surprise they are really good, excellent quality
and washed very well.
if anyone's hesitating about buying.....DON'T
Do you mind me asking which site it was please ?
No problem -it was this site. If you scroll to the top
of this page there is a blue tab marked SHOP. Press that
and you're in - good luck.
Blonde moment on my part it does say parkinsons shop online
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.
Well said, Pmac...I'd go even further in Bob Hoskins case and say that, personally, I'm disappointed by his continuing silence about pd. He is in a great position to publicise and fund-raise. I'm just surprised such a spunky little character appears to have pulled the shutters up! Very much hope I'm proved wrong in the future!
Look up billy Connolly on you tube. Re prostrate. Exam.
Funny how life imitates art ???.
