Hi Kate

Just when i wanted to reply to your post i saw you are promoting our Facebook Fundraising Group in your signature. Thank you very much.

I think it would be great to have a center of excellence in Europe, hopefully in the end it will be more than one, but we have to start somewhere.

I will check my situation and if i can do it i will make a small donation before the matching period ends.

Thanks eric.

It would be great to have something like this in Europe wouldn't it, from the website http://letsdoitforme.blogspot.com/p/centre.html

Invest in ME are supporters of the Whittemore Peterson Institute (WPI) of Nevada, USA, and have funded UK research by WPI. It has European connections and links to other researchers and institutes in Europe and Australia. The WPI have expressed their support for the charitys efforts in establishing a translational biomedical research base in Norwich and have agreed to cooperate.


To those considering donating,
P.S. When you make a donation, don't forget to check the Gift Aid box if you're a UK taxpayer as then your charity can claim an extra 25% from the government!
