Welcome to Wonderful!

 

Invest in ME Research is now officially a Wonderful Charity

Wonderful.org is a fab fundraising platform which is completely free to use. Supporters can create online fundraising pages or simply donate.

 

 

Most fundraising platforms charge for providing the service, whereas Wonderful.org is a non-profit funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses making it possible for them to pass EVERY PENNY raised from your fundraising efforts and generous donations to the charity, including Gift Aid.

Invest in ME Research itself is run by volunteers and has no paid staff. It’s a small charity supported by people with big hearts. Overheads are kept to a minimum to enable all funds raised to go to promoting education of ME, and facilitating and funding biomedical research, which the charity believes is crucial in order to make progress in treating this disease. Education of healthcare staff, the media, government departments, patient groups and patients is also a priority.

First to sign up as Wonderful Fundraisers for IiMER are Georgina and Phoebe!

Play for IiMER

 

Play for Invest in ME Research Launches With Love

 

Music was the food of love for ME at The Spinning Top in Stockport on Sunday 17th Feb. The Valentines Music Fundraiser launched ‘Play for Invest in ME Research’ created by Karen Morris to raise money for the charity’s Biomedical Research Fund while also raising awareness of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

The idea of Play for IiMER is to organise gigs around the country in aid of the charity. Karen hopes to organise more gigs herself if health allows (Karen has ME) and hopes that others in UK will help her to make Play for Invest in ME Research go nationwide by organising and filming similar gigs in aid of the charity.

Click here for a super selection of photos of the Valentines Music Fundraiser, where you may notice Let’s Do It for ME Bear taking centre stage!

Karen added the money to the total raised on her JustGiving page –
I Support ME Research
and there’s an option to donate by texting ISMR99 £10 (or £1-£5) to 70070.

The performances were recorded and are uploaded with each artist’s name to the Play 4 IIMER playlist on Karen Morris YouTube channel.

Many thanks to Karen and everyone who donated, watched, performed.

If you (or anyone you know) would like to join in with this event, please contact Karen Morris. You can also contact Invest in ME Research charity for help with awareness and fundraising aids, banners, wristbands, collection boxes etc.
