What else can we do?



We are asking that you put together a small group in your community to help disseminate Lyme Materials.

Here are some ideas that you can do in your own town:
1. Order Free Lyme Brochures from: 

http://www.lymediseaseassociation.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=52&Itemid=39
These can be handed out at parks or you can set up an info booth and any local fairs or events. Ask pharmacies or stores to place these on their counters for customers to take. Pin them up on billboards. Make a box in your yard that people can take these from.

2. Order Free Tick Kits from:
http://www.igenex.com/Website/contactus.php
These can be handed out with the brochures.

3. Tie up Lime Green Ribbons!
Tie green ribbons around your mailbox, porches or a tree in your yard! S-L-A-M.org started a campaign several years ago. Each May, people hang up lime green ribbons wherever they can. You can tie them on your porch, your mail box, get permission from your town to tie them on phone polls… anywhere that will bring attention to Lyme Disease. So this May, get ready to do it again.

6. Samantha’s Annual Lyme Life Awareness “Green Light” Campaign

This will be the second year in a row for the green light campaign! It’s simple and everyone can do this with us. Just buy a green bulb at your local hardware store and change your porch light!
