Beyond the Bathroom


As many of you might know by now, this is IBD Awareness Week.  What you also might not know is that I recently joined the Board of Directors for The Intense Intestines Foundation.

This week, the IIF rolled out a new contest/campaign.  It is called the Beyond the Bathroom.  As you can tell from the name, we are trying to show that IBD is more than a pooping disease and there is so much more to it then just going to the bathroom.

I am now going to ask a favor.  Please go to http://www.intenseintestines.org/beyondthebathroom/ and check out the contest.  After you read about it, please submit your picture but most of all, please, if you can, send a donation.  The IIF needs your support.  They need it not for themselves, but for the people they support.  They currently have a scholarship that they give out every quarter.  Real soon, they will be coming out with a bill assistance program.  These programs can’t survive without the support of the community.

 

To show you what the Beyond the Bathroom is, it is very simple.  On their site, you can download a page to print out and you just write in a symptom you have that isn’t related to the bathroom.  See my picture below.
