The National ME/FM Action Network – that’s Action Network – is on the cusp of winning $5,000 (and getting a chance to win $100,000) in the Aviva Community Fund Contest – or going home (sigh).
Why should you support the National ME/FM Action Network? Because they act – and they act effectively.
Without the National ME/FM Action Network there’s probably no Canadian Consensus or International Consensus Definitions. That’s right – they spearheaded the movement to create these ground-breaking efforts to present the real face of ME/CFS.
They also hosted the Ottawa IACFS/ME conference, and have produced numerous resource guides including the Canada Pension Plan Disability Guide, TEACH-ME Sourcebook for Teachers and Parents, and the Legal Disability Manual.
Check out the latest news on their website and you’ll see they’re regularly pushing government agencies for better support. They’ve even gone to court for people with ME/CFS.
I like this group. They’re not just lobbing hand grenades; they’re doing the difficult work to produce change.
Now they’re teetering on the cusp of making the finals and bringing in some money – or going home. This contest is open for just four more days. All it requires is a quick registration and a click, and anyone anywhere can vote.
Then spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, and email.
I can do that for five days 🙂 and I think you can too!
