Action for M.E. has been chosen to be part of the Big Give Christmas Challenge for 2017. That means every donation you make to stop M.E. stealing lives via our special donation page between noon on Tuesday 28 November and noon on Tuesday 5 December will be doubled at no extra cost to you.
THURSDAY 30 NOVEMBER UPDATE: Thanks to our brilliant supporters, donations to our Big Give Christmas Challenge have just topped £100,000 - which means our match-funding pot has run out, and donations can no longer be doubled. We are surprised and delighted, having expected the matching pot to last until next Tuesday. Instead, you have helped us reach our initial target in less than 48 hours. But our Christmas Challenge is not over – every penny still counts, and we are now working towards our ultimate goal of £155,000. Even though donations are no longer being doubled, your gift will help us reach more children, adults and families affected by M.E.
Your support means that we can be there for even more young people like Charlotte, 15, and her family, often when no-one else is. Every donation to the Big Give will fund our vital information and support services for people affected by M.E., including our forums for children with M.E. and their parents, which help them feel better supported and less isolated.
You can see Charlotte talking about why this matters so much in our short film below, which also stars Phil, Heather, Katrina and Sharon.
The Big Give Christmas Challenge replaces our usual research appeal.
