    Any ideas, anyone? (I do not know the first thing about Facebook, so have no idea what a Facebook event could be.)

    I'm sorry, I don't know much about Facebook either. But I wanted to say that raising awareness sounds like a great idea. And, most important, Happy Birthday! :balloons:

    Great idea! You can make an event by clicking the More button under your cover photo and then clicking the create event button. You could have a sponsored event- everyone who writes you a Happy B'day message donates to an ME charity. Or a synchronized meditation for healing for all those affected. Or prayer. Depends on what sort of angle you want to take...
    You can also look on FB for the blue awareness ribbon and add that to your profile picture.

    Happy B'day BTW:balloons::cake::wine::music::tulip:

    Great idea to raise awareness - I also have no suggestions - not au fait with FB events, but I hope yours goes well AND you enjoy your birthday. A friend of mine with M.E had a FB birthday party and everyone at home with M.E put face paints on and took photos of themselves 'at' the party.

    @*GG* happy birthday! :)

    A Dutch fellow patient used her birthday to make her Facebook friends sign and share an important ME advocacy petition: http://forums.phoenixrising.me/inde...ke-a-minute-to-sign-please.44475/#post-733148

    @*GG* Am still just barely learning how to use FB and have not yet joined myself (this is on my long list of goals...) but wish you the best with your advocacy event and also HAPPY BIRTHDAY in case I missed it!

    P.S. I was briefly very confused when you changed your screen name b/c I often use "GG" as short hand for "Gingergrrl" but don't want to confuse anyone! It's a great abbreviation, you have good taste LOL.
