So how can you help?

The Number One obstacle to eliminating Scurvy is that people aren’t even aware that Scurvy still exists.  silicone-bracelet-smallWe need your help to raise awareness that Scurvy, the most easily prevented/cured disease known to medicine, still affects over 12% of the world (864 million people) each year.

On May 2nd, reach out to your community and make sure that everyone knows that it’s International Scurvy Awareness Day![/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Most importantly – Have fun with it!

Since we aren’t asking you to raise money or sell anything, there’s ZERO pressure – so have fun while you do it!

Call into your local radio station!

celebrate_car_stereo

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Your local radio station is an extremely easy way to reach thousands of people at once.  I mean, think about it from the radio show’s point of view: They have to find enough fun, engaging and unique content to fill 6 hours a day, every day…that 30 hours a week of air content they have to fill – every single week!

So help them out!

Call into your favorite radio show and remind them that May 2nd is International Scurvy Awareness Day!  If you can, try to reach out to their show manager a week or so in advance and they might be able to put together a whole show bit around it, and you’ll be able to lay back and listen to them in the self aggrandizing knowledge that YOU made it all happen.  Play your cards right and you might even score yourself a free T-Shirt or station swag!

(Hint: Flirt with the host a little and you mind even end up walking away with some free tickets, too!)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_raw_html]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[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column]

Wear Green to Work!

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Those jerks in Human Resources are going to make you wear a shirt to work anyway, so why not throw on a green shirt, blouse or necktie and wear it to the office?  Then you can tell your co-workers that you are wearing it to support the cause of ending Scurvy!

You will be idolized by your peers as the type of person who is not only stylish, but also willing to go out of his way to help others.  That’s the kind of energetic go-getter that not only ends up with the corner office, but the company car as well…[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_raw_html]JTNDc2NyaXB0JTIwYXN5bmMlMjBzcmMlM0QlMjIlMkYlMkZwYWdlYWQyLmdvb2dsZXN5bmRpY2F0aW9uLmNvbSUyRnBhZ2VhZCUyRmpzJTJGYWRzYnlnb29nbGUuanMlMjIlM0UlM0MlMkZzY3JpcHQlM0UlMEElM0MlMjEtLSUyMExTLVJlc3BvbnNpdmUlMjAtLSUzRSUwQSUzQ2lucyUyMGNsYXNzJTNEJTIyYWRzYnlnb29nbGUlMjIlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjAlMjBzdHlsZSUzRCUyMmRpc3BsYXklM0FibG9jayUyMiUwQSUyMCUyMCUyMCUyMCUyMGRhdGEtYWQtY2xpZW50JTNEJTIyY2EtcHViLTIzMjgxNzUyNTUwNTAwMTAlMjIlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjAlMjBkYXRhLWFkLXNsb3QlM0QlMjI1MTA2OTA5ODExJTIyJTBBJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwZGF0YS1hZC1mb3JtYXQlM0QlMjJhdXRvJTIyJTNFJTNDJTJGaW5zJTNFJTBBJTNDc2NyaXB0JTNFJTBBJTI4YWRzYnlnb29nbGUlMjAlM0QlMjB3aW5kb3cuYWRzYnlnb29nbGUlMjAlN0MlN0MlMjAlNUIlNUQlMjkucHVzaCUyOCU3QiU3RCUyOSUzQiUwQSUzQyUyRnNjcmlwdCUzRQ==[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column]

Bring in some fresh Fruit to to Work!

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Nothing gets the attention of coworkers faster than free food.  This time, however, consider skipping the donuts and instead stop off at your local grocery store on the way to work to pick up a pre-made fruit tray?  Or a Key Lime Pie?  Or lemon squares?

Your office will love the variety, and you’ll be seen as that health conscious outlaw who brings a valuable fresh perspective to the business.  You’ll be more popular than the guy who got the IT Department to reopen network access to Facebook.[/vc_column_text][vc_text_separator title=”Did you know?” color=”purple”][vc_column_text]

  • The average donut contains about 200 calories
  • A slice of Key Lime pie is only 175 calories!

Do you own a Bar or Restaurant?

Then you know the first rule of business is to get the customer’s attention.  So, on May 2nd, make it easy on yourself and use Scurvy Awareness Day as a reason to bring in those customers!

Seriously: Add a note to the Marquee out front, update the chalk sign, post a note to the Facebook page and then add a special or two to the menu.  Easy.

Maybe consider a special on Verde or Green Sauce Enchiladas?  Or offer Key Lime pie for dessert?  Maybe an extended happy hour discount on Margaritas and Daiquiris?

Be sure to email us and let us know about your event and we’ll even give your event free ad space on the LimeStrong.com website!

As a a final measure of awesomeness, consider donating a portion of the night’s proceeds to your local food bank to genuinely help fight Scurvy where your customers live![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_raw_html]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[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column]
