Once again, the Zombie Research Society is happy to celebrate Zombie Awareness Month! Our annual campaign is meant to help raise awareness of the living dead, and prepare you for the inevitable zombie apocalypse. While this is a perfect time to enjoy your favorite zombie films, books, and video games… it’s also a wonderful opportunity to learn!
Our organization is dedicated to the historic, cultural and scientific study of the living dead. On this website you will find a wealth of information provided by authors, artists and academics discussing the possible causes, prevention and preparation for the coming zombie apocalypse; and we encourage you to join the conversation!
The campaign runs every year from May 1 to May 31. The month of May was chosen because a number of notable zombie films are set in May, such as the classic George A. Romero zombie film, Night of the Living Dead. In addition, the sense of hope, renewal and optimism that the spring season brings gives a contrast to the darkness of a zombie apocalypse.
Supporters of Zombie Awareness Month often host charitable events, or wear a grey ribbon, to help spread awareness. And the campaign has even been adopted by a number of organizations over the years including local state governments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It’s truly a time for celebration, reflection, and education!
So join us online at Facebook or Twitter, and use the hashtag #ZAM17 to share your stories and tips for surviving the inevitable zombie apocalypse. This is your chance to support our noble cause, and maybe even save a life… because what you don’t know can eat you!
