    Hi guys,

    As there is such huge support for OMF on the forum and the research it funds, we have a massive opportunity coming up!

    As of today, October 17th until November the 29th, EVERY donation recieved will be TRIPLED by a wonderful donor, OMF board member Dr Deborah Rose.

    For every $1 donated, OMF will receive $3 and together, we will all raise $100K or more for ME/CFS! OMF has another donor that will continue the momentum once they have raised the total $100K!
    This applies to all new donations and new recurring donations received Oct 18-Nov 29 th ( all time zones)

    Now is the time to give and have your donation tripled!

    Please spread the word in every way you can-in person, twitter, facebook!

    DONATION LINK: https://app.etapestry.com/onlineforms/OMF/GivingTuesday-1PR.html

    Thanks so much,


    B

    So just to make it clear (as much for me as everyone else!) That means if you donate $1 Dr Rose will donate $3, $5 = $15, and $50 = $150! And obviously your contributed amount is added to the tripled amount!

    What an opportunity to fund the awesome research!

    So should it be Quadruple Tuesday ?
    If I donate $1, OMF gets $4 in total ?

    If so it's even better than the title suggests !

    Hey @BurnA

    You are totally correct. However the original amount is 3x the donor amount which is where the triple comes in.

    In the words of Linda Tannenbaum "Good point. We have $75K for this which is $25K donations x3".

    ($75k is what Dr Rose will fund up to, which means we must try to raise $25k for that $100k target. There is another donor after this if we exceed that amount!).

    Also the #TripleTuesdayOMF is catchy for social media.

    But hey, its all amazing!

    Thankyou so much @Mary. Any donation is fantastic, and if it gets there late enough then great. If not, you have still donated and made a real difference-so thankyou so much!

    That is so generous! I have chipped in what I can and have forwarded the link onto family and friends who I am sure will also make a contribution.

    Thankyou so much @Cheesus

    Its not the amount, its the act that counts. It just helps that in these unusual circumstances our donation can be much greater due to the kindness of others!

    Awesome you forwarded to family and friends-thats exactly what we need to do. Any idea's for greater exposure, let me know!
