Never under estimate the power of the Internet, or of mums.
My sister in law very kindly posted a request for help with our awareness survey on a very busy Mums website earlier this afternoon.
The response has been absolutely fantastic: in seven hours well over 100 people have filled in the survey form and the website has been busier than in ages.
The information so far is:
a) extremely useful
b) very interesting
c) anonymous (so please add your honest response as well)
What really touch me are the comments added on the response forms. They're under wraps, but let me just say that I feel encouraged, supported and useful.
There's no official end to the survey as yet, but at some point I will be showing the overall results to some big decision makers, to illustrate the need for a change of attitude, so please, add your voice and help us make changes - we don't want any more unnecessary tragedies.
