International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    hey guys! I wasn't sure which section to post this in, but I am going to be creating some holiday/greeting type cards with my artwork, and on the back I wanted to take the opportunity to raise awareness about M.E.

    My question is what's the best place to point people to?
    1.general information
    And
    2. Donations

    Thanks! :)

    What a great, wonderful and creative idea @alice111! I love this idea. :thumbsup: I see all kinds of potential with this. There's been some recent threads about donating, and about information to share. Here's a few on donating. Hope it's not too much for you to read them.

    Anyone want to post some best places to donate for @alice111? Off the top of my head OMF, Lipkin's, The MEA Ramsay Research Fund, the different organizations that are fighting for us...the list goes on. Perhaps if you don't want to chose just one you can list different ones on different cards.

    The thread below has some ideas for general information. I know there are other threads, too, that probably have more of what you are looking for. I can't seem to locate them easily right now.

    Hopefully some people can chime in to help you with this. :hug:

    Since @alice111 is from Canada, I'm wondering if there's some recommendations for Canadian organizations to donate to.
