    Can we get a total from Global X Action Network? Here in the first days we had $233 listed in new donations listed and $260 promised through end of year, plus amounts going through Global Action on Facebook. There may have been more that wished privacy.

    I just donated again, as I think they REALLY need the money now. I also send an email to some family members asking them to donate money for WPI.
    I am also thinking to maybe sell old stuff at ebay and then donate the proceeds... Other ideas for raising money?

    Hi leaves & frickly,

    Just wanted you to know that I also donated again today, at your urging and the urging of Dr. Deckoff-Jones.

    Today IS ANNETTE WHITTEMORE'S B-DAY!

    II.) Thanks everyone, please PM me if you think the title post is not including any important information (Dr. Mikovits quotes, Explanation, Donation Links, etc.). I tried to make it thorough but don't want it to be overwhelming.

    Also today is Annette Whittemore's birthday! Annette is of course the founder and CEO of the Whittemore-Peterson Institute. :balloons: :balloons:

    So today is an especially auspicious day for anyone who wants to start donating. Remember everyone, we might not be here today if Defreitas's Research (she found a retrovirus in ME/CFS patients in the early 1990s... yeah that long ago...) funding hadn't fell through... We can't do anything about that past event but we can contribute at the present, as a post I read reminded me :Retro smile:

    Also even if you don't want to give out amounts I encourage you to post in the thread and mention it--as this way everyone else donating feels like part of a team and not as if they are acting alone.

    Thanks Advocate, Ya Kati! I agree with Leaves, I think they really need the money now. I am trying to think of something more we can do on xmrvglobalaction to encourage donations. Our little group is not feeling well right now so if anyone has suggestion please let me know.
