Endometriosis Awareness Month - Livia Give Away
It started with the following instagram post for Endometriosis Awareness Month, about wanting to give someone a Livia Unit.
What Is Livia?
"My hope was that after my hysterectomy, enough of the disease would be removed that I wouldn’t need my Livia unit anymore (similar to a tens machine, designed to disrupt pain signals, but compact, and designed specifically for womens pain. Plus it's so CUTE!) The hope was that I could gift it to someone who needed it but wasn’t able to spend the cash.
Unfortunately things haven’t gone that way for me, and I can’t give it away. I’m grappling to come to terms with the fact that my healing hasn’t been as comprehensive as I would like. In hopes of countering my frustration and disappointment around this with something positive. For that reason, I’d like to buy a @myliviaofficial for one of my endo sisters who can’t spend the money on one right now, but who could use it for pain relief.
To be clear, I paid full price for mine and would be doing the same for this one — this is not sponsored, though if @myliviaofficial wants to match my offer with one of their own, that would be amazing!
DM me your name if having one of these would help you but the cost is daunting and you want to be entered into a draw. I’ll pick one name randomly and sort out the shipping details once that happens."
People started messaging me, asking to be entered to win the Livia unit. Many members of the Endo Crew online, who would love to try one of these units but can't afford the cost. But it didn't stop there.
Before I knew it, people were reaching out to me, offering to donate money to add a Livia unit to the giveaway. Generous souls who have watched me go on this journey, and want to do something to help.
In less than 3 days, I've received offers from 20 people who all pledged a Livia for an endo sufferer who needs one! And that's not all...
The team at Livia reached out to me and offered to donate 1 Livia unit for every 10 we purchased! Amazing!
I had no intentions of asking anyone else to join in, and to this second haven't asked a single person to do so, it's all been of their own accord, and my heart is swollen to bursting with what that means. I am genuinely blown away by the support.
The reason I am opening this page is solely to be accountable about how much money has been collected to everyone who has offered to donate. It seemed like the easiest way to accept the generous offers and keep everything on the level.
Each unit is currently $199 + shipping ($5) -- hopefully we can get in on this 20% sale!
THANK YOU to everyone who has shared, pledged, and responded to this. I don't know how to thank you for what you've done!
