Since the establishment of the Invisible Disabilities Association’s Annual Award Banquets in 2008, we have asked our attendees not to wear perfume, cologne or fragranced lotions.
We have done this, because millions of people have reported adverse health affects with exposure to the chemicals in synthetically fragrance products.
We would like to share these quite bold and brave articles in response to our fragrance-free event requests. Thank you, Glory!

The Invisible Disabilities Association has its Honors Banquet, Oct. 24. Verbatim, here’s what’s on their info postcard, which we just love: “This is a Fragrance Free Event. Please be considerate of people attending with illness, allergies, asthma and chemical sensitivities by not wearing perfume, cologne or fragranced lotion.”
