Behind the allergy started as a campaign, sponsored by the founder of The Allergy Table, Lindiwe Lewis and the Teal App. The mission of the campaign was to show the public that we are people and to change the narrative from ‘weak’ to ‘resilient’. Just because we cannot see them, doesn’t mean allergies aren’t real.

The campaign spanned the month of September 2020. It was a roaring success, from allies to reactors participating and sharing their stories.

Following on from this amazing month, the organisers have decided to produce merchandise. Reactors are much more than their allergies, but that doesn’t mean they have to hide them.

For every sale, 10% of the proceeds will go to your selected allergy organisation. In order to bring on change, we have to fix the systems that make it hard for reactors to feel safe in the world. Changing the systems is how we change the world. 

Many reactors feel shame, embarrassment and judgement when it comes to their condition. Whilst they didn’t ask to be reactors, they should be able to celebrate all aspects of their lives, which inclusdes allergies. Creating this merchandise is allowing reactors and their allies to be proud of who they are.

We are all unique and everyone manages allergies differently, which is why these products can be personalised to suit your individuality. The buyer can chose a symbol that best showcases the recipients personality.

The hope is that everyone will wear these products and feel confident that they are advocating for the entire allergy community.
