MS Together

How are you all doing this week? 

We hope you are all well while constantly negotiating changing weather and politics. 

Thank you for your constant and ongoing help.  

This week’s nomination is from Marissa and we are so pleased to help this Charity reach toward their target and also wish Marissa the very best managing her condition in the future. It’s also encouraging to see a group aiming to set up specific help for diverse populations and a good reason to help during Pride month. 

Here’s the nomination. 

Hello Five Hundred Reasons!  

I have been volunteering with an amazing charity, MS Together (mstogether.org) to help them set up a Counselling service for young adults, 18-35, living with Multiple Sclerosis. The charity encourages young adults to create a supportive community that helps people feel less alone while navigating a difficult, chronic condition at such an important stage of their lives. I have MS myself and use their services. It has changed my life and given me confidence and a community to belong to.

The service has already received a lot of support but it still needs funding for clinical supervision for it’s counsellors and it also wants to set up specific therapy groups for diverse populations (such as people living with MS from the LGBTQIA+ community, for example). 

They are still looking for £4,920. Could 500 reasons help them towards their target?
