The campaign is aimed at raising awareness of disability and ending the awkwardness and stigma that surrounds disability by getting people to share their awkward stories on social media.

Emily’s described when she was out and about how when she asked someone for directions instead of talking to her the person instead beat down and gave them to her guide dog!
