Kiss Goodbye to MS is MS Research Australia’s national fundraising initiative, raising money for research into MS. In 2015 our Kiss Goodbye to MS community came together to raise over $1 million, and in 2016 we are aiming even higher.
Kiss Goodbye to MS empowers the community to raise funds and awareness for MS, and calls on people to get involved however they like! Whether fundraising with an event or organising a workplace morning tea, you are able to choose how you support the campaign. Some of our community get sponsored to wear red lipstick, or anything red, throughout May, and others set a personal challenge and ask for donations. How you get involved with Kiss Goodbye to MS really is up to you, and you can participate from anywhere around the world.
In 2016 Kiss Goodbye to MS, an Australian founded initiative, has taken on new heights, with nine countries around the world adopting the campaign. Since January, France, Sweden, the USA, Mexico, Greece, Argentina and Ireland have been doing their part to increase funding available for MS research, introducing Kiss Goodbye to MS in their own countries. Ireland adopted the Kiss Goodbye to MS initiative this year holding an early morning dance party, while the USA asked their community to donate and share a picture of why they want to Kiss Goodbye to MS.
In May, Denmark and New Zealand will launch their Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign alongside our Australian campaign, in alignment with World MS Day.
The world is coming together to increase the funding available for research globally. As Kiss Goodbye to MS grows, the awareness for MS continues to build, with thousands of people showing their support on social media.
What will you do to Kiss Goodbye to MS in 2016?
