    this was posted by Karen M. Campbell on co-cure today and I thought it was a good idea (I've slightly adapted it for the international market)

    Donations for research

    if 17 million ME/CFS patients each give $1/month, that's

    $17,000,000 a month and $204,000,000/year

    Just the money raised in one month would be over 3X more than the US government funds currently.

    And it'll go where it'll do the most good - to good scientific research on xmrv and on ME/CFS.

    Put that link in with your Christmas cards/e-cards, and ask friends to donate instead of giving you gifts.

    For those older relatives who don't use computers,

    Whittemore Peterson Institute,
    6600 N. Wingfield Parkway,
    Sparks NV 89436


    I would rather have good health than more clutter in my house!

    Great idea. Thanks for posting this.

    I've been using isearchigive and shopping on the igive sites. Even bought a few things, some stocking stuffers. It's fun and it reminds me of WPI every day.
