Giving Tuesday News

We couldn’t let this day go by without taking the opportunity to thank everyone generously giving of your precious time, extraordinary efforts, sheer genius and money, to support the work of the volunteer-run UK charity Invest in ME Research and, especially as far as the Let’s Do It for ME campaign is concerned, joining us in enabling the charity’s Centre of Excellence projects to get underway and ongoing.

You are all much appreciated, whether you are a well friend and run a mountain marathon, or are bedbound and feel like you run a mountain marathon every day, supporting by sharing posts and links online.

We highlight a few of these current endeavours today.

Rebeccah Prince’s innovative Five Portions Of Etsy shop closes on 12th December. Five Portions Of is also on Facebook and Twitter.

Rebecca also created a Facebook fundraiser today.

“I am holding a Pop-up Christmas Fair at my house for friends, family and local residents with my stall selling unique themed gift boxes which I put together under the name of Five Portions Of, lovely artisan stalls and a Christmas cafe to raise money for Invest In ME Research. This is my second fair and last year I raised a coupe of hundred pounds for Invest In ME Research. If you are unable to make it to the fair and would like to donate please use this fundraiser. I myself have been a participant in the Gut Bacteria studies by Invest In ME Research so it is a charity that is very important to me.” Read more…

Please send Jane Hurst a private message on Facebook if you’d like to buy a pack or two of her gorgeous nature photo cards.

Thanks again to Jane’s family who braved the cold for another sale of her cards, kindly hosted by O’Flynn’s Budgens in Poringland and with proceeds to Invest in ME Research.

Thanks also to Emma for her stunning 2020 Calendar (sold out) and Chris, whose Unique Gifts from Squirrel Woods raised £574.00!

Christmas to a T? The amazing Mama Chill’s limited edition design for men and women available to buy online from her shop on Dizzyjam.

Invest in ME Research shone the spotlight on the brilliant efforts of Jen Govey on Day 3 of their Advent Calendar. Jen joined Team Let’s Do It for ME last year with her absolutey fabulous awareness and fundraising idea #DressForME. She’d love you to join in the fun if you’re well enough to do fancy dress or cosplay or simply like and share.

Day 3 of easyfundraising’s £5k win-win Advent Calendar contest, and still time to nominate IiMER to win £1k in Ecclesiastical’s 12 Days of Christmas.

Finally, one thousand thank yous to the donor of £1,000 to Invest in ME Research lighting up their Christmas Funding Tree!

Happy Giving Tuesday everyone and thank you for your support!
