This is one for my American readers. As some of you will know, my little sister has MS and so, of course, The MS Society in the US & in the UK, along with The MS Trust are my charities of choice.

The US MS Society has secured some fantastic funding from one of their corporate partners Pure Protein®, makers of high-quality snacks. Give today (or soon) and your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up t0 $225,000.

For example: if you give $150 your gift will be matched with another $150 — and your total gift will be $300. If you give $200, your total matched gift will be $400.

If you were thinking about any kind of charitable giving in the US, then this could be the time!
Donate now and double your impact!

Helping The MS Society (US) reach their $225,000 goal means that your contribution will go twice as far toward funding vital research initiatives and providing important programs and services to people living with MS and their families.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common disabling neurological condition affecting young adults.

MS is the result of damage to myelin – a protective sheath surrounding nerve fibres of the central nervous system.  When myelin is damaged, this interferes with messages between the brain and other parts of the body. For some people, MS is characterised by periods of relapse and remission while for others it has a progressive pattern. For everyone, it makes life unpredictable.

A great piece in The Guardian about living with MS linked here & here is a post I wrote explaining what it is like to have MS on a daily basis.

This seems a pretty generous corporate giving scheme. Quite often companies make a lot of noise about supporting a charity but actually donate a tiny percentage of the cost of the product/of their turnover. My friend’s mum has MS – great to see the cause being supported. Thanks.

Thanks for this…a very good friend was just diagnosed a month ago. Will definitely visit the links & pass them on.

That is a very generous scheme. I shall have a look into it now. I hope they find a way to stabilise people who have MS, a friend I worked with for a long time has it which is terribly sad xx

Thank you for promoting this. I don’t think most people know what MS is or it’s devastating effects on people, particularly young females who have the most prominent diagnosis. I wanted to mention Nancy Davis’ foundation – Race to Erase MS. It’s an amazing organization
