Conversation starter products to address your invisible disability and make it much easier to live and work with the people you encounter in your daily life.
The Invisible Disabilities Association (IDA) is very excited to announce the addition of two incredible new awareness items in the IDA Store. Both products were inspired by people living with invisible disabilities and both fulfill the requests of our readers for ID cards, badges and shirt pins. So, as an organization working hard to to see to the needs of all members, we are elated to bring these important tools to our membership and to the public.
Lanyard Invisible Disabilities ID Badge Wallet with 50 Invisible Disabilities Cards Added to Conversation Starter Products
The first is the Invisible No More! Invisible Disabilities ID Badge Wallet. This serves as a hands-free lanyard invisible disabilities ID badge wallet. You can wear this to a doctor’s appointment, on the bus, to the grocery store or anywhere and be prepared to share awareness about invisible disabilities and IDA.
This fabulous item was inspired by the IDA founder’s wife, Sherri, who lives with Progressive Multiple Sclerosis, Late Lyme Disease, traumatic brain injuries and toxic injuries. Sherri wanted to have a lanyard-type invisible disabilities badge holder with cards that could be handed out and a hands-free way to carry her essentials into stores and into doctors’ offices. This design is perfectly suited for that purpose and has extra room to slide in health cards, insurance cards and more. No more juggling a separate wallet and purse along with other assistance equipment.
The Invisible Disabilities ID Badge Wallet comes with a badge that says, “I Live with an invisible disability.” You will also receive 50 invisible disabilities cards that can be handed out and a wallet with room for your driver’s license, credit card, cash and pens.
Invisible Disabilities Lapel Pin Joins Conversation Starter Products Lineup
The second product is an Invisible Disabilities Lapel Pin. You can wear this to an appointment, to a meeting, to events or anywhere. Many thanks to Katie Maskey, who inspired this item. Katie lives with chronic pain and she is an IDA Ambassador. Katie wanted an attractive pin, displaying the IDA “I” logo that she could wear with a dress or jeans. She wanted this pin to be a symbol of her challenges and triumphs, as well as a conversation starter for her to share about her invisible disability.
