Share Your Picture in Times Square!

As part of OMF’s Second Annual May Momentum campaign, OMF is going to Times Square in the heart of New York City to raise awareness on Sunday, May 12, the International ME / CFS Awareness Day.

Throughout the day on May 12, OMF will be “on-screen” in Times Square on a digital billboard screen to raise awareness, and the global community is invited to be a part of this important campaign.

On one large screen, OMF will share a message about ME / CFS. On an adjacent screen (see image on the right) we will have a slideshow of photos of patients with the OMF logo. We invite you to share your own photo. We are requesting a minimum $33* USD donation for each time your photo(s) will be shown.  This amount represents the average age of onset for ME / CFS of 33 years old. Your photo can be shared on May 12 as many times as you would like – once for $33, twice for $66, etc.

Donate and add your photo to be displayed in Times Square on May 12 – International ME / CFS Awareness Day.

Your image will help us educate people about ME / CFS and ensure that patients are no longer invisible to the world. If you prefer not to share an image personally, please consider donating to support additional posts of OMF generated content.

All submissions must be received by May 6, 2019.

Click here to donate and receive instructions on how to submit your photo.

(After you complete your donation, your email acknowledgment you will be asked to reply to submit your photo.)

Thank you for being a part of our Times Square action. Hope to “see you” in Times Square.

*$15 of your donation covers the fee to post your picture in Times Square. Names will not be posted. All photos subject to review.
