Thumbs Down To M.E!

With everything that’s been going on in the world It seems M.E awareness month has not only arrived, but also overtaken us before we’ve had time to organise all the usual awareness, fundraising events and shenanigans that we love going on. However, thankfully there is still plenty of you out there waving the flag of awareness and doing some wonderful things that we mightily appreciate. As for doing my own bit? I have to admit that not knowing my Saturdays from my Tuesdays or my Mays from my Decembers or my breakfast from my Supper right now, the M.E awareness month hit me before i realized. I had been working on the “Thumbs Down To M.E” design and campaign at the beginning of the year but forgot to put it out, thats M.E Foggy head for ya? There are T-shirts and Hoodies & Totes that can be purchased from my Dizzyjam store and 100% profit from this design will be donated to Charity: Invest In ME Research

Also Jo Best has kindly updated my Mama Chill /Runnin On Empty awareness page so that, you can now download the M.E awareness tracks, & watch/share the Youtube videos all from that one page, and you can see them all here including the link to the Merchandise store Mama Chill

Following last year’s successful campaign, specialist insurer Ecclesiastical is giving a further £1million to charities, initially £1,000 to 500 charities.

Mark Hews, Group CEO of Ecclesiastical, says: “We’re delighted to announce the launch of Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards for the second year running. The coronavirus is having a major impact on charities and many are facing financial difficulties. Our Movement for Good awards will continue to help charities at a time when they need it most and we know that for many charities, £1,000 can make a real difference.”

Let’s Do It for ME is run by patients supporting Invest in ME Research.

Invest in ME Research is an independent UK charity finding, facilitating, and funding a strategy of biomedical research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and promoting better education about ME.

Invest in ME Research is run by volunteers – patients or parents of children with ME – with no paid staff. Overheads are kept to a minimum to enable all funds raised to go to the charity’s work.

“We are a small charity but with supporters who have big hearts – and a determination to get the best possible research to be carried out to find the cause of myalgic encephalomyelitis and develop treatments.”

The charity was among the lucky winners last year thanks to your nominations and spreading the word. Let’s hope we can do it again.

Thanks to Ecclesiastical for this opportunity.
