Raising Awareness During Endometriosis Awareness Month
March is Endometriosis Awareness Month...in the Metaverse
Time to raise awareness: Info, NFTs & the Metaverse
March is Women’s History Month. It is also Endometriosis Awareness Month, a time to raise awareness about a disease that affects millions of women worldwide. Endometriosis is a condition where the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of it, leading to severe pain, infertility, and other complications. Unfortunately, it’s a disease that is often misdiagnosed or misunderstood.
I am one of these women. I have always hidden mine with an “oh I don’t feel good” or the infamous “I’m sick”. In fact, I created the “She Shamrocks” during this time last year when the disease made an appearance while I was mid-production for the historical 31-day International Women of Blockchain conference. And though it did knock me down for a couple of days, I suffered through it to ensure the show continued throughout the end of the month. This is the reality of what “we” — the Women of Endo endure. Thousands of women. Daily.
To show support for those living with Endometriosis, the annual “She Shamrocks” NFT collection is back! The collection features unique AIrt Work by Technikole and reflects the strength of women who endure the invisible disease behind a sugary smile. Each creation is a unique representation of different women of all kinds affected by the disease. It’s a reminder that we are not alone in the struggle.
The “She Shamrocks” collection of 2023 is an opportunity to support a worthy cause, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Endometriosis Foundation of America, an organization dedicated to raising awareness and funding research to find a cure for Endometriosis.
Along with the collection I created an informative metaverse experience to educate visitors about Endometriosis. The museum was designed to be accessible to everyone, even those who have never experienced a Metaverse before. So jump in.
For thousands of women, Endometriosis is a hidden affliction. Someone you know may be enduring Endo right now and hiding the true nature of their suffering. It’s an experience that can feel isolating and overwhelming. The She Shamrocks collection is a cool way to celebrate without invading someone’s privacy but shows support to those enduring while you also get a chance to rock a culturally inclusive PFP for those that love St. Patrick’s Day and can never find the right way to showcase it.
Take some time to educate yourself and raise awareness about Endometriosis this March. The links are below to view the collection and to walk through the power of one of the most diverse Metaverse spaces, Spatial. Visitors are welcomed in their browsers, on their phones or in their VR -Virtual Reality headsets. This is an opportunity to connect with the experience everyone is talking about.
