Big Give Christmas Challenge

Big Give Christmas Challenge

Taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge, the UK's largest online match-funding campaign, is a fantastic opportunity: it means that donations to us via the Big Give are doubled, thanks to the generosity of some of our supporters and Candis Club, providing a match-pot.

We are very excited to be taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge once again this year - you may have had a letter or email from us asking you to save the date.

2020 has been challenging for most of us but for people with M.E., lockdown has led to a huge increase in isolation and issues accessing the care and support they need. Now more than ever, people with M.E. need support - which is why the Big Give is more important than ever.

Between Tuesday 1 and Tuesday 8 December, donations of £5 and above to Action for M.E. made via the Big Give website, will be doubled immediately. Please save the date, and donate via the Big Give link we’ll be sharing here.

As the only UK charity for people with M.E. of all ages, we will use every penny raised to support people with M.E. to improve access to vital services and support, better understand and advocate for their rights, and feel less isolated and better connected.

Last year, our Big Give Christmas Challenge raised an incredible £144,425. Because of you, more people living with M.E. can get the support they need now; more teachers and doctors can have a better understanding of M.E.; and we can bring more scientists and more funding into biomedical research, like DecodeME.
