Dear members of the RSDSA Causes page,
I'd like to take a moment to thank you for your continued support of the Official RSDSA Causes Page! With your help, our page has grown to 12,875 members! I want to remind you to keep asking your friends to join this page by cliking on the "Invite Friends" link in green on the top right of our page under the number of our members. It only takes a few minutes of your time! And remember to set our cause as your Birthday Wish! This can be done right under the invite link. We have raised $5037 to date, so keep asking your friends and family members to donate! November is National RSD Awareness Month, so doing these few things will greatly help RSDSA and show your support to its mission!
I also want to let you know that I have updated the links/media section. If you click on the media link on our main page, you will be taken to the media area. There, on the left side, you can click on a link that is designated for the most recent items I have posted. These links will update you on the latest RSDSA news, including videos from the 2010 Team RSDSA at the Achilles Walk in NYC (and by the way, we had the largest team present at the walk with over 300 walkers representing RSDSA!), some of the latest RSDSA fundraisers, some of the latest RSDSA research projects, etc. Please take the time to view these links and comment on them . . . and be sure to click the green "I Read This" button on each of the link's pages so we can see how many people are reading about RSDSA!
One of the links is an invitation to the Annual 2010 RSDSA Bounty of Hope event. I would like to ask you all to let your friends and family know about this event via Facebook and e-mail, even if you won't be able to attend. Ask them to attend and/or donate in honor of National RSD Awareness Month. They can even make a donation on behalf of a specific RSDer, if they like! I will be at this event, so please let me know if you will be there so we can meet each other and take some pictures! It is a great event, obviously benefitting RSDSA, where there will be a silent auction (with AWESOME items!), hors d'oeuvres and a bar, a wonderful presentation about RSDSA's milestones, entertainment, etc.! Last year's event was great, so let's make this year's even more successful!! The Bounty of Hope will take place at The Roosevelt Hotel in NYC on November 3, 2010 at 6:00 PM. For more info, see this link: http://www.rsds.org/bountyofhope2010.html
Again, please remember to come to our Facebook RSDSA causes page (http://www.causes.com/RSDSA) to see our updated links and invite your friends to join our page and/or donate! Supporting RSDSA's offical Causes page not only shows your support to RSDSA, but to all people who have RSDSA. Our page is listed on the 8th page of all the health pages on Causes, which is really exciting becaus people who are browsing through the top 10 pages will actually see who we are and what we are supporting! Help our member numbers continue to rise so that we'll be listed on page #1! My goal is for our page to become the top health page on Facebook's Causes, and it is certainly an attainable goal if we each make the effort to ask our Facebook friends to join and explain why it's important for them to support this cause. Rally the troops! We can make it happen!
Here's wishing you a meaningful National RSD Awareness Month! I hope you'll help everyone you know learn about RSD. And if you get the media's attention for an interview (ie: newspapers, tv, radio, webblog/podcast, etc.), feel free to contact me (http://www.facebook.com/mtyszler) so I can let RSDSA know to be available for comment/interview! I am also available for interviews (I represent RSDSA as a volunteer, I serve on CT Pain Foundation and RSD-CRPS LifeSavers' Advisory Boards, I lead the #1 RSD support group on Facebook, and I am involved in several pain/RSD related projects/endeavors).
Thanks to you all! Be well, stay positive, and dream big!
