Awareness for Diabetes in November, World Diabetes Day and Nerve Pain Awareness month are all addressed by a project called 'NERVEmber.'
The Power of Pain Foundation launches this social project every year, generating conversations around conditions like RSD, CRPS and diabetes. As the campaign has been run for a couple years, it's accompanied by hashtags from a number of pain organizations and patients.
One new tag that's being added to online conversations this year is #PainPOP. People are being asked to pop a balloon and make a donation to help the Power of Pain Foundation, saying something along the lines of: "I have the nerve to be heard!" This activity is reminiscent of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, since it's bound to be unpleasant, startling and share-worthy on social media. With the use of the right hashtags to raise awareness, participants even have the chance to win a number of "POP Prizes."
