International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    If you're going (as I am) to donate to this important UK resource - an ME/CFS biobank at the Royal Free Hospital in London - it's best if you do it at 10am, as Charles explains in his post.

    I've set an alarm so I don't forget!

    Get those wallets out...

    Your head can join my head in being boggled! But it's 10am here in 8 minutes. I think you have to do it just before 10am? At 10am?

    @charles shepherd, can you clarify?

    I'm going to hit the button a minute before 10am and see what I can see!

    Done! I clicked the 'donate' thing at 10am and got a message saying I had 10 mins to fill in my credit card details if I wanted my donation to be matched.

    That was plenty of time and when I'd finished I got a confirmation that my donation had been matched.

    Very rewarding!

    @charles shepherd - I'm hoping you can clarify this issue of when precisely to hit the button to get the best matching deal. We did our best! :)

    I missed the cut off, and didn't get that message. Oh well, I was going to donate anyway :)

    Pity! They're doing it again tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday at 10am.
