International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day is May 12: The World Will Know
Did you know that May 12 belongs to us? Lots of us are aware of this. We share the buzz on it amongst ourselves. We add blue ribbons to profile pictures. We raise our voices, join our hands, mount the few podiums available to us and tug at the sleeve of the rest of the world.

    I didn't realize I hadn't posted this contest here. AARP has a contest in which you can submit your story about your volunteering experience(s) focusing primarily on what you have done in the past year. There will be seven regional winners chosen by judges. Each will receive $5,000 for his/her charity. There is also a grand prize of $10,000 chosen from among the seven regional winners by popular vote. This amount will also go to charity. So you could win $15,000 for your charity. AARP is looking for big and little ways in which people help others. The story is limited to 250 words. Deadline for submissions is Sept. 30th. I think something written in a fresh, creative way or something that shows that little contributions can make a big difference might have a real shot with the judges.
