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.

    Voting has begun in the Direct Debit Big Break competition in the UK for the month of April. Action for M.E. is competing this month. The prizes are: 2,000 pounds to the top vote-getter; 1,000 pounds to 2nd place; and, 1,000 pounds will be divided among runners-up. Here is the place to vote: https://www.directdebit.co.uk/DirectDebitPromotions/BigBreak2014/Pages/CauseDetail.aspx?CauseId=353 It is just a one-time vote through April 30th. Action for M.E. will use prize money for their Research Strategy. You can read about it here. Action for M.E. is one of four ME charities that have agreed to compete in different months. The ME Association will compete in May, and MERUK will compete in June. Invest in ME won the top prize of 2,000 pounds in March. Thanks for your help!

    We have removed posts from this thread as rule breaches of forum rule #4 -- "Criticize constructively, don't just dump". The thread also became increasingly off-topic due to members discussing an entirely different non-profit organization.



    Please refrain from tearing down an organization just because you don't feel they are worthy of your support. A constructive discussion on why you don't think they merit a vote is fine. Actually, it's always good to have a discussion of both the good and poor aspects/strengths and weaknesses of any organization so people can make better informed choices.

    Thank you.
