Surrender Control of Your Tweets to Raise Awareness of Tourrette Syndrome

Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada - Surrender Your Say

Today, (June 19) people who follow my Twitter account may see some unusual tweets. I’ve volunteered control of my Twitter account for the next 24 hours as part of “Surrender Your Say“, a campaign to help raise awareness of Tourette syndrome. I’ll have no control over what is being posted or the frequency that I post, to mimic the sudden involuntary vocal or physical actions associated with the condition.

“The biggest obstacle for people dealing with Tourette Syndrome is the attitude that people have when they see someone with physical and vocal tics. Without knowledge of the disorder, people are quick to judge. Surrender Your Say will help more people become familiar with the disorder and will help achieve the TSFC goal that all people who have Tourette Syndrome will lead quality lives as accepted and valued members of an informed, tolerant society.”
– Cathy Wylie, TSFC President

The initiative created by Saatchi & Saatchi Canada, and has attracted over 1800 participants last time I checked.
