It Takes Guts is a new campaign by Crohns and Colitis UK. I was honoured to be asked to be part of it. They say:
It takes guts to talk about Crohn’s and Colitis. But no one can see it until we say it.
It’s time to speak up and break down the stigma.
One conversation at a time.
Part of their campaign is an animated video. I was asked to provide the voice for part of this along with two other people with Crohns or Colitis and the result is just brilliant.
Please take a look at the It Takes Guts website, there is so much brilliant information and support and you can share your own story too.
Or maybe you’d like to create your own emoji poster to start the conversation and share on social media?
Crohns and Colitis UK
I have been a huge supporter of Crohns and Colitis UK for many years. I have received so much support and information from them in my times of need. It is a real honour to be able to give back to them now.
Also a big thank you to my child Eli who came along as my support and help for the filming and voice overs. They carried my bags, helped me with travel and was a great support all day. I wouldn’t have been able to go without help and my brilliant 16 year old was a rock all day. They even joined in on the photo shoots!
You might also recognise Timm on the website offering some words of wisdom around speaking to children about Crohns and Colitis! I’m so pleased that all my family are so supportive and help me to raise awareness like this!
I hope you love the It Takes Guts campaign as much as we do!
