Just donated 30$ US. It's great Dr Bell has done this. I've emailed 3 friends who care about me and asked them to read the letter and to donate. I've said that funding is at a critical stage as no federal funding has been forthcoming. Also said that the WPI has given US all so much (more than any dr) that they deserve more than I can give in return. I also apologised for my asking for their money - but asked them never to buy me presents again. It will be great if they match my donation. It sounds like WE all have to get the WPI over this hurdle in time.
