Tick Bite Awareness Campaign

The Karl McManus Foundation needs our support to further research into the prevention and cure of tick borne illness in Australia.

My wife Amy has been afflicted by an Australian Lyme Like Illness (Vectosis ) for over 6 years. She has been unable to work or maximise her experience of being a mum for that period due to chronic pain, fatigue and numerous other debilitating symptoms.

We would like to spare others the suffering that Vectosis brings by helping the Karl McManus Foundation bring awareness on the dangers of tick bites and how people can protect themselves.

Australian ticks become highly active from September so it is imperitive we get the word out quickly so people can protect themselves.

This year KMF has been offered several Community Service announcement spots by major TV networks and need to raise money for the production of high quality commercials to warn the Australian public about the Dangers of tick bites and associated Vectosis.

The funds will be used to finance the production of highly effective video content that will be used in both the TV commercial and social media.

They need funds for production in 4 weeks.

On Friday night my company Burst SMS had an unveiling of an art piece as part of our office launch. The piece by Sean Torstensson included a $2000 started doanation for the campaign.

I will also be donating my time to produce the creative concepts and develop the script.

Money will be needed for filiming, graphics, voice over and production ready material.

Please give generously, any excess or unused funds will be donated directly to the Karl McManus Foundation for their ongoing efforts.
