What is Triple Giving Tuesday?

#TripleGivingTuesdayOMF is an exciting opportunity to triple your impact and accelerate groundbreaking biomedical research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS) and related chronic, complex related diseases. Every donation made to OMF any day of the week between Oct 19 through Nov 30, 2021 will be triple matched. Regardless of how you donate, when you donate, or where you donate, your gift will be TRIPLED! That means $10 equals $30, $20 equals $60, and so on! There’s no better time than Triple Giving Tuesday to support research — don’t miss out. 

How can you support OMF’s 2021 Triple Giving Tuesday campaign?

 

Step 1

Create a Triple Giving Tuesday fundraiser for OMF starting October 19  and ending November 30, 2021! (You can set the goal for any amount you choose, and be sure to let your donors know: All donations received within this time frame will be TRIPLED!)

 

Step 2

As some of you know, I have Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS). I’m excited to share that Open Medicine Foundation (OMF) is kicking off its annual #TripleGivingTuesdayOMF campaign today! Thanks to generous matching donors, every dollar you donate to OMF any day of the week will be triple matched now through International Giving Tuesday on November 30, 2021!

Why is this important? ME / CFS is a devastating, life-altering, multi-system disease affecting up to 2.5 million Americans (or 20 million people worldwide), and many more may become afflicted in the aftermath of COVID-19.

While its impact is widespread and devastating, relatively little is known about the disease, no FDA-approved treatments exist, and patients are left to deal with the illness with little help from the medical establishment, in many cases for decades.

Fortunately, OMF is working to change the research landscape. OMF is a US-based global nonprofit, with a 19-member Scientific Advisory Board that includes two Nobel laureates and six National Academy of Sciences members.  OMF has facilitated and funded the establishment of five research centers across the globe dedicated to diagnosing, treating, and ultimately preventing these related chronic, complex diseases.  

OMF is leading the research and making real headway. There is now a committed community of world-renowned scientists, doctors, and patients raising awareness and making great strides in finding treatments that bring ME / CFS patients some relief and hope for a normal life in the future. 

When you donate, you help to accelerate this critical research, giving hope to millions.

Please join me by supporting #TripleGivingTuesdayOMF today. Or you can visit OMF’s website to discover a donation option that’s best for you.

Thank you for your support
