FMSSAS eNews 11.10.08

Greetings to you all
I think we have experienced the last of the summer weather now.  The late heat wave last week was a bonus and should have helped to set us up for the oncoming less cheerful seasons.  Whatever the weather, keep smiling and let your inner warmth radiate to those around.

Give as You Live
All I want for Christmas!  We are calling all shoppers, retailers, media owners and charities to help us turn all of our Christmas Shopping into a new source of donations for all UK charities.
Despite charities facing Government cuts of £3bn over the next five years, just 5% of us say we will be giving more to charity during Christmas this year, compared with 2010. With a significant online spend predicted Give as you Live could raise £170m* for UK charities if we make our Christmas purchases online. Read more about this
If you shop online you could help raise money for FMSSAS.  In fact if you all did this we probably would have no financial problems ever again!  And it wouldn’t cost you a penny.  Sign up today, download the app then everything you buy on-line will benefit us.  Thank you in anticipation.
Those of you who are members of FMSSAS, please send in your votes for trustees as soon as possible in advance of the meeting.  Thank you.

Sites I refer you to are for information only.  They might conflict in their opinions, they might not even be medically sound, but I merely offer them for you to peruse and make your own judgements, accept or reject as you will.  Only by reading widely can we get an overall picture of fibromyalgia syndrome and how we can deal with its symptoms, learn to cope with them and still have a life.  I also include various awareness and local issues as well as general health considerations.  Anyone wishing to reproduce any of the above items in printed form should seek permission from the originators.
