Many of you have expressed a desire to buy me a cup of coffee as a thank you for my work on The Daily Headache. My 37th birthday is coming up and there’s no greater gift I could receive than for The Daily Headache’s readers to further migraine research by donating to the American Migraine Foundation’s 36 Million Migraine campaign.
Whether you can only spare the couple dollars you’d spend on a cup of coffee or your budget will allow for a larger donation, every contribution helps further migraine research. That’s the gist of the campaign — if each of the 36 million Americans who have migraine donated just $1, we’d have $36 million to investigate the causes of and treatment for this life-altering disorder.
Of course, not all 36 million migraineurs read The Daily Headache, so I’ve set my birthday fundraising goal at a modest $1,000. Please consider donating whatever you can spare to better the lives of everyone who lives with this poorly understood, debilitating illness.
I’ve set up a 36 Million Migraine via The Daily Headache donation page on Crowdrise so we can see how much The Daily Headache readers contribute toward the goal. If Crowdrise’s $10 minimum donation isn’t in your budget, you can donate through the American Migraine Foundation. I’m using my birthday to drum up support, but it doesn’t matter where you donate or if you mention The Daily Headache or me — it’s all about raising money for migraine research.
P.S. Click on the orange “Optional Processing Fee” text on the Crowdrise donation page if you do not wish to pay an additional amount for processing (or if you wish to pay more in support of Crowdrise!).
