    I agree, I hope ME charities world wide will give as generously as possible to Dave, his work is pivotal along with all the biomedical research.

    That's a really good idea, could we maybe rally some of them via twitter to support the campaign? If a few people do it it might be more powerful.

    I agree some sort of campaign is needed. I wonder if maybe we could start a thread in every forum in phoenixrising to ensure as many as possible here know about it? Or do you all think everyone here is aware of it?

    Are there many well known wealthy ME donators who might not be aware of this?
    I was trying to think but only Morgan Fairchild came to mind! I'm not sure if she donates or raises awareness. Anyone have any ideas of people it might be useful to target?

    I just noticed this on the crowdrise page, probably should have read it all before now!

    "If anyone would prefer to support my efforts by donating off-line directly to the School of Public Health at UC Berkeley, please e-mail me for further information: davetuller@berkeley.edu"

    Another thing people can do is mention it in their Phoenix Rising signature.

    Could PR members perhaps contact their local/national ME charities around the world to inform them of this fund raising and ask them to contribute?

    If writing, another option to mention would be to get their request circulated to their contacts/highlighted through one or more of the media they use. Some might be willing to do this but might not be willing to donate.

    David Tuller literally tearing PACE - just as promised :D

    I so hope he will raise enough funds to work full-time on this!

    I spoke with David this morning, he explained that it's much more preferable to donate via crowdwise, that way if he reaches the target he gets added benefits in the form of health insurance etc. that go with having an official position in Berkeley.

    Also, it means he does his investigations as David Tuller, Berkeley, rather than 'just' David Tuller.

    He appreciates that people don't like paying commissions etc. but in this case the benefits really outweigh any additional expense. He is very grateful for all donations received so far.

    That all sounds very sensible.

    It's actually very touching to look in on the campaign everyday and know we are most likely all patients. It's nice to be part of such a gracious and grateful community despite how awful it is that we've been put in a position to need to help someone legitimise what really is a serious illness.
