Ryan Prior's offer to send dvds of his documentary Forgotten Plague to members of Congress for $10 has been extended to May 31st. Volunteers will ship the pack, which, includes, besides the dvd, a letter to the chosen representative. http://www.forgottenplague.com/product/congressional-pack/
Due to popular demand, we are keeping the Congressional Pack program open through May 31st. We have sold 300 so far, and the momentum is incredible. We can keep creating even more buzz for ME/CFS on Capitol Hill if we send a second volley of Congressional Packs shortly after our first one.
If you're wondering about whether your Congressperson has been covered or not, our official recommendation is to still send a DVD. The feedback we get from congressional staff members is that they are essentially counting voters' opinions: the more specific letters/opinions/calls that come through on a specific issue, the more likely they are to act on that subject.
A stack of 10 DVDs in every office will show them the urgency with which our community needs action!
