Shades for Migraine 2024

Shades for Migraine 2024 is fast approaching, so grab your sunnies, get creative and help raise awareness of migraine.

What is Shades for Migraine?

Shades for Migraine® is a global awareness campaign to raise awareness for the 1 billion people living with migraine disease worldwide, run by the Association of Migraine Disorders.

Shades for Migraine was created with one simple idea, a social media challenge to raise awareness of the impact of migraine. On 21 June, thousands of people around the world take part, and this year you can too.

Take part in 3 simple steps

  1. Take a photo wearing sunglasses on, or around 21 June. Get creative and involve others if you can.
  2. Post your photo on social media with 2 hashtags: #shadesformigraine #migrainefoundationaotearoanz
  3. Challenge 3 friends to take part and watch your impact multiply.

When you use both hashtags #shadesformigraine #migrainefoundationaotearoanz you’ll automatically be entered into our draw to win one of our prize packs.

And you can also tag us in your photos:

Facebook @migrainefoundationaotearoanewzealand

You can post as many photos as you like, but will only be entered into our draw once.
