Hi everyone!

It was me who has donated 250$ today.
This is my first donation to the POIS grant. I will try to donate a bit more money before march.
If we all get together we can make it!!The POIS fund will succeed before the deadline!
Come on guys, we need serious medical research!!

PBO.

Thank you very much PBO!

Together we can do it!

If $50 to $100 or more seems like too much money to give for now, how about committing $5, $10, $20 or more per MONTH?

Select as few or as many months as you want! 2 months, 3 months, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months, whatever!  :)



Simply click above and scroll down till you see, "Make this a recurring donation"...

THANK YOU, EVERYONE - YOUR AUTOMATIC MONTHLY DONATIONS WILL HASTEN OUR GOALS CONSIDERABLY!

As per Daveman's recent post, I totally agree that before the end of March deadline the majority of discussion and effort here should be channelled toward getting the NORD grant. If you have time to spend thinking and posting about POIS in the next couple of months, please spend it thinking about fundraising for the grant. If you have an idea, please act on it. Sometimes there is a danger of discussing things too much rather than just carrying out our ideas. Its better to carry out 5 ideas, 4 of which end up failing than to just discuss things and not do any of them. One common characteristic of successful entrepreneurs is that they are not afraid to fail, thus they act on ideas more often than others and ultimately some of them work! And the first step is to just write that email or whatever it is you've been thinking about doing. Just take the first step and the rest follows. Who knows where it might lead. Every breakthrough success we've had here be it the October money bomb or the reddit campaign, getting POIS sufferers on TV (amazing!) and in newspapers, getting more doctors interested in POIS, having POIS officially recognised by the major US and European databases ....all of these have come from a small first step taken by individual forum members here.

Its a new year of opportunity - put aside your excuses (we all have them), be positive, act on your ideas and get your new year off to a flyer. You'll feel great that you did something for everyone (and don't forget that everyone includes you so you really can't lose).

Individual efforts are (variably) valuable for alleviating [POIS] symptoms but I have no doubt a more methodical research is invariably better if the goal is to identify/confirm the causes and develop "truer" cures.

I'm sure all of us have financial obligations, most of which seem more important than this research fund. It's not my place to ask you to re-evaluate those obligations, but I highly recommend that you perhaps commit to a recurring, automatic donation of small payments, an option NORD offers. Otherwise, I suggest you set up a recurring reminder in your calendars or smartphones (weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, etc.) to manually make a small donation.

I'll duplicate all donations that come in from now until the end of Jan. (limit $1000) not including present recurring donations.
The idea is to get new donors in. They should be announced here for the Daveman Promo.

Amijgoro, yours is the first in this promo.

WITHOUT RESEARCH THERE WILL BE NO CURE!
Sessions 5 to 9 days, mostly Flu-like, joints, digestion problems, light cognitive.
Niacin has changed my lif though, now 1 day MAX.
Somewhere in this interaction with Niacin is the answer!

There are those over there at NSF, that think this is all a fun game!  I suppose we need some short of humor or diversion to help us make it through day by day, but it's another thing when the pursuit of real solution becomes a game.

Are we anal, perhaps a little. Are we fun? Sorry! We could play and dance all night, promise false or un corroborated hopes so that you think we are cool! Sorry!

Others MIGHT find a temporary solution for some of you. I hope so, and all the best to those who try.

Our vision is to find a positive and proven solution that the world of POISers outside these forums can use, simply by going to their
Doctors.

So far nothing works for everybody, and most new treatments are unstable...work for awhile on some, then loss effectivity.Face it WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THIS IS.

We want to know what this is! We'll find the treatment from there. It's not fun my friends. It's serious.

I don't know about you, but I'm tired of going around in circles..for almost 7 yrs now...
