“Not All Chronic Illnesses Are Visible” Support Pin

Just yesterday, following another unpleasant journey on public transport, I said to my fiance that we should create a pin. A functional pin that also creates awareness. And today, we did just that!

After many requests, I’ve created a functional pin badge with the words “Not All Chronic Illnesses Are Visible” in my usual blue and white. The aim is to make the invisible visible by challenging unhelpful assumptions and raising awareness with a subtle pin. This badge can help those around you understand your situation, whether on public transport, at work or with friends and family.

Whilst I appreciate that there are people who wouldn’t want to publicly declare their health conditions, don’t feel the need to express them or otherwise wouldn’t find this pin helpful in their day to day lives, I’ve heard the huge response from many who say they would and have responded. I hope you like it!

We went with the phrase most commonly requested for now, in two colour variations, and will look to expand the text options in future.

You can grab one for £3.50 here: https://www.facebook.com/commerce/products/2076723132367727/
