PLEASE ACT – Exciting opportunity for funding!

Dear Friends – We’d like to alert you to an exciting opportunity to help win funding for OMF’s research to end ME/CFS:
Chiara Ferragni, a fashion businessperson and social media star with millions of followers, is looking for good causes to donate to in honor of her upcoming wedding. We are hopeful that the compelling stories of ME / CFS patients will catch her attention, like they did with the Pineapple Fund.
She says to “write an email to sharing an important personal cause that you or someone near you is fighting.”
Please send her an email with “Open Medicine Foundation” in the subject line, and tell her why our work to end ME / CFS is so important to you, your friends, and your loved ones. With your support, we may get a strong boost in funding and awareness from this effort.
You can also view and comment on the original Instagram post here:

Thank you all for supporting our work!
