    Hi guys,

    It is our dear @Janet Dafoe (Rose49) birthday on May 2nd and in celebration is running a fundraiser for OMF to raise money for research! :balloons::cake::star:

    IMG_1786.JPG

    As you all know by now Janet is an absolutely integral part of the forum, and her presence is appreciated by all who come to contact with her! She does so, so much behind the scenes aswell as caring for Whitney, so it would be nice to give something back. So lets raise some money for research in honour and appreciation of this incredible lady!

    The donation campaign is on facebook, here is the link:

    https://www.facebook.com/donate/10155187837373904/

    And if Facebook is not available to you, you can donate via OMF's website here:

    https://www.omf.ngo/donate-to-the-end-mecfs-project/

    And select 'for the birthday of' or 'in celebration of' Janet etc!

    Anyway, I thought you guys would like to be aware!

    Thanks as always,


    B

    As Ben points outs above, it's the regular donations that help keep the research going, so if you can please think of setting up a monthly payment. I've done this for both the OMF and Lipkin and Hornig's team at the CII.

    My pleasure. It isn't much, but I hope it will help!

    Don't want to derail Janet's birthday, but some of our signatures are linking to the old OMF page, which my FireFox browser is deeming insecure. I used the link that @Ben Howell used at the beginning of this thread to update mine. :moneybag::)
