The use of the green sunflower lanyard, lapel pin, or bracelet for an individual signifies that the individual wearing it has an invisible illness or disability. They might not be able to communicate effectively as to what they will need help with. The sunflower lanyard is very distinct, and yet discreet. We don’t want to call full attention to the fact that the wearer has an invisible illness to embarrass them, rather as a signal to be quiet, understanding, and empathetic.
If the individual is not able to wear the lanyard, lapel pin, or bracelet, we have the “I support” lanyard for their companions, family and friends to wear. The “I support” lanyard is a way to let others know that someone that they are with, has an invisible illness that may require time, patience, understanding, and empathy.
I SEE You! Foundation is proud to be the first in Utah to offer this new and exciting program for all of our communities! We know firsthand how challenging it can be to have to deal with judgement, fear, and stigmas. The sunflower lanyard is free to individuals who would like to wear them and use them. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to get one.
