I've been thinking of my Migraine "family" recently, wishing there were more I could do to help everyone feel better and have a higher quality of life. Every day, I receive email, forum posts, Facebook messages, and other communications from people with Mgiraines that are truly life altering.
More and more of those messages arrive as time goes on. I'm not sure that it's because there are more Migraineurs having trouble. It may well be that, with the Internet, we have more options for communicating with each other. That's a positive aspect of the Internet - access to more information and support than ever before.
In the midst of this busy holiday season, I wanted to take the time to thank everyone who reads my work and everyone who emails me or sends me a message through other methods. Many of my articles and blog entries come about because of questions you ask, information you need. So, thank you!
I wanted to do something special for you for the holidays, whichever holidays you may be celebrating, but what could I do? Finally, I decided that the best gift I could give you would be a donation to Migraine research. There are several nonprofit organizations raising money for Migraine research.
Just as I was trying to decide if I should make a donation to one or smaller donations to multiple organizations, I learned about a new web site called Crowdrise. There, I was able set up a project for raising funds for Migraine research on an ongoing basis AND make a donation as a gift for you, my Migraine family.
The Crowdrise project Dollars for Migraine Research has been set up, and the first donation was from me as my gift to you. The Migraine Research Foundation was registered with Crowdrise, so donations to Dollars for Migraine Research will go to them to help with the Migraine research grants they award.
If you need a last-minute gift for a Migraineur, a donation toward Migraine research may be your answer. If so, please join me and make this OUR project. You can just make a donation, or you can register with Crowdrise and join the project. There is NO cost to join, and once you join the team, you'll find information there for sharing information about the project. Just go to Dollars for Migraine Research .
Of course, I want to support all the wonderful organizations that fund Migraine research, so I'll do more projects later on to raise money for them. In the meantime, if you'd like information on other organizations that fund Migraine research, see Donating to Migraine Research .
