#GetYourBellyOut update! Don’t lose touch!

Well, what a whirlwind it has been over the last month!

The support for the #GetYourBellyOut campaign has been truly overwhelming and I am so proud to have been a part of it! If you are wondering what I am talking about then you can catch up by reading my first blog; ‘The rise of #GetYourBellyOut’ here and my second blog ‘What #GetYourBellyOut has done for me’ here

So far we have had over 40 blogs and 3 videos talking about and promoting the campaign and after nearly two weeks we finally had official backing from Crohns and Colitis UK! We had an introduction in the ‘What’s new’ section of the website on April 4th and they also featured me as a guest blogger on April 11th.

Even with the backing of CCUK things are still clearly slowly down on the #GetYourBellyOut front so we have created a Facebook Group for all of those who felt inspired by the campaign who would like to continue supporting each other, sharing their stories and have an involvement in any future #GetYourBellyOut campaigns.

We shared a ‘What is IBD?’ Awareness poster yesterday and our aim is to get as many shares as we possibly can before World IBD Day on May 19th. If you would like to show your support, you can go and give it a share here

Stay tuned for our other World IBD Day plans!!

Our current thoughts are that it would be nice to continue raising awareness, so every few months the #GetYourBellyOut supporters could get together for another Twitter takeover on a topic that will be voted on within the group. If you would like to be involved in future #GetYourBellyOut bids for raising awareness then please join us on Facebook here

If you would like to put an idea forward and do not want to join the Facebook group then you can email

All future campaigns and details on how to get involved will be announced on the GetYourBellyOut Facebook Page. You can click through and like it directly here

I would just like to share some feedback with you to show you just how far the campaign has reached over Twitter which could not have been done without YOUR help!

TOTAL #GETYOURBELLYOUT TWEETS! (Look, you can see peaks on our Twitter takeover days)!

CAMPAIGN TOTAL SO FAR! (I’ve even roped Brighter Directions, where I work in for the team total)

YOU CAN EVEN SEE WHAT MY TWEETS HAVE LOOKED LIKE! Can you tell what I’ve been working on? :)

Much love and I will see you soon! Mwah!
