    The Open Medicine Foundation has just begun a fundraising campaign to raise $8.3K in donations and have it matched 3:1! Raising $8.3K therefore brings in another $25K from the donor which means that $8.3K results in $25K + $8.3K = $33.3K!!! Money will be collected from October 15th through December 1st for the “Lead up to Giving Tuesday” campaign. The OMF will count all donations that come in during this time. Please donate if you can at https://app.etapestry.com/onlineforms/OMF/GivingTuesday.html and help spread the word about this exciting opportunity! Thank you for your support!

    Just off to their donation page now to give - I want my money trebled! They say on FB that you have to put in the 'honor area' that it's for Giving Tuesday. In another post, the link was given as:

    http://www.openmedicinefoundation.org/donate-to-the-end-mecfs-project/

    which makes it clear that this is for Ron Davis's END ME/CFS project.

    Great news from the OMF: With just two short weeks until Giving Tuesday (Dec 1) we are thrilled to report that an extremely generous donation, received in honor and memory of Eric Moore, pushed us over the top and encouraged another donor to add $20K to the total match! With your generous daily donations, we have already met our first $25K goal and now all donations made between now and Giving Tuesday will be tripled up to a total of $45K!

    We're getting close to the end of the Giving Tuesday offer to treble your donation. Even if we've already hit the $45K boundary (anybody know?), this is still a good time to say thanks to OMF by donating to the research fund. :)
