How can my audience support MND research and care?

A:

We encourage you to make the most of your screening by getting your audience further engaged in learning about the disease and playing their part in helping fight back against MND/ALS.

  • Invite local politicians, public figures and decision-makers to attend the screening, to raise their understanding about MND/ALS and how the healthcare system can provide the best possible help to people living with the disease and their carers.

  • If you don't have local guest speakers, consider playing the streaming video of a Q&A session with filmmakers, family, and MND experts which will have been recorded at the Edinburgh International Film Festival the night before Global Screening Day.
  • Invite audience members to sign the MND Charter, which calls for five basic rights to be upheld for all people with MND, from early diagnosis to support at the end of life.

  • Invite people to make a donation to the MND/ALS charity in your region or country. Or have refreshments on hand, and ask for donations in return for these, which can then be passed to your local MND/ALS organisation.

  • For people holding screenings in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the MND Association can provide more help and materials to maximize the impact of your event.
