The Dress For ME Challenge!

By Jen Govey

I’m raising money for Invest in ME Research with The #DressForME Challenge!
I hope you will join me and we have a little fun on the way!

The Challenge:

* Dress in something extraordinary. Do something ordinary.
* Take a photo, post it on social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag
#DressForME and a link to this fundraising page:
* Nominate 3 friends to join in!
* Donate here and let me know what you did! 😜

Thank you so much for your time, generosity and sense of fun. This will make a huge difference to the lives of those living with ME, plus I will love you forever! 😍

I’ll be joining in myself of course as this is for my favourite charity and I love fancy dress! I came up with the idea as people with ME can often find it a struggle just to dress and do basic things healthy people take for granted. I am just coming out of a severe patch and just wanting to make a difference as there is no real treatment for severe and moderate patients and very little support. Please go and check out the IiME website to see the great work they are doing to change things.

Have fun! 🙂

P.s. You don’t have to dress up to donate!

P.p.s. You can have a #DressforME day at work or anywhere you fancy if you don’t want to do it alone!

Bears are going barmy for IiMER ATM! The little embroidery studio have created a brand new superbear and they’re donating ALL the proceeds from each bear sold, to a charity very close to their hearts – Invest in ME. That’s a fab £25 donation for each bear sold!!!
