The lion mothers on Snapchat

The Løvemammaene's Snapchat channel was started on 1 February 2018. It quickly became very popular and today has over 95,000 subscribers. In addition to 12-15 permanent "snappers", the channel has a number of guests. There is a long waiting list to become a guest. Social media is one of our most important tools for spreading awareness about our issues, sharing information with our members, and is a central channel for getting in touch with us. Løvemammaene's Snapchat channel can therefore also be found on Facebook and Instagram. 

The person who is logged into the snap responds to 200-500 messages during a snap day, depending on the topic and engagement. Most relevant anniversaries within disease and functional variation are marked on our channel, either by the regular snappers or by guest snappers with their own experience of what is being marked, such as e.g. "Rarity Day", "World Autism Day" or "International Sign Language Day".

The channel has five administrators who are responsible for the implementation for one week at a time. The channel has its own rules with guidelines for both regulars and guests, including our ethical responsibility, what we can and cannot share, and confidentiality towards ourselves and the followers. In between we have competitions with great prizes, and every December we have a slightly different Christmas calendar with hatches that are relevant to our target group. The Snapchat channel is alive and constantly changing. Themes change from day to day and give a completely unique insight into the everyday life of families with children and young people with illness and functional variation, for better or for worse.

Openness gives knowledge and knowledge is power! We believe that through openness we can contribute to an increased understanding of what it is like to live with a chronic illness and various functional variations. We believe that increased understanding contributes to making harmless and "normalizing" what for many is experienced as different and foreign, and that we can thereby break down prejudices and reduce bullying, which unfortunately is often a consequence of a lack of knowledge and understanding. We believe that openness and dissemination of knowledge is the key to a more inclusive society, where people with illnesses and functional variations are not seen as someone who needs to be "fixed", but rather a completely natural part of the diversity in our society. We are here for the love!
