    1)Team 92 for ME are going to visit all 92 English football league grounds in 92 travelling hours in support of Invest In ME.

    This is a fantastic chance to reach people outside our own world of ME internet forums.

    They have asked that we help publicise this.To make this easy, they have drafted a letter you can use to contact your local newspaper, local news website, local TV stations, radio and football clubs.

    The letter and more details are here - http://blog.ldifme.org/2014/03/lets-move-goalposts-for-me.html

    @Kate_UK - what a fantastic idea! I remember that photo of a Norwegian football stadium with 'MEandYou' in massive letters on a huge screen behind the goal. Norwegian football, of all things, really got behind that campaign.

    I think this needs a different title thread so that people don't think you're just tapping them up for more money (no bad thing that you would, of course) - even broke people can join in with this.

    How about: England! Use this template email to support the UK Rituximab football 'Team 92 for ME' fundraising campaign!

    Hope that's OK - @Kina, could you make the change, unless Kate is unhappy? I've also reported my own post in case you're asleep.

    @Sasha -- the title is too long -- the word 'campaign' doesn't fit. Any thoughts for a shorter title?
