Gladioli (gladdies) are the favourite flower of Dame Edna Everidge, patron of the Karl McManus Foundation.
Lime coloured badges have been created to represent the plight of the Lyme disease sufferers in the world. Purchase of each badge helps to fund Lyme disease/ Borreliosis/relapsing fever disease research.
Every year 16th of September is a special day, Gladiolus (gladdie) day. The month of September, beginning of spring, in the Southern hemisphere is Gladdie month.
Everyone please join in and celebrate Gladdie day and month, buy a badge and remember those who have passed away from complications of Lyme disease/Borreliosis in the world.
How you can be involved:
Please contact the foundation if you would like to be a Gladdie representative or purchase from our online store to show your support.
