I’d like to tell you about a project to fund medical research. It’s called “Cure Chronic Intracranial Hypertension (IH)!” and with your support, it could receive funding from American Express!!
Members Project is an exciting program that brings people together to make a difference in the world. It awards $2.5 million dollars to be shared by the top five projects and organizations that will carry out the projects. While the competition is national, “Cure Chronic Intracranial Hypertension (IH)!” is one of only eight projects selected from Washington State.
Beginning August 19 through September 30, 2008, the public has the opportunity to nominate and vote on which projects should receive funding at the Members Project website, http://www.membersproject.com/ These votes will ultimately determine the winning five projects.
This could mean a LOT for Intracranial Hypertension research!
In 2007, Members Project provided clean drinking water to children all across Africa. What will Members Project do this year?
The decision is yours.
Please nominate our project and spread the word to your family, friends and colleagues! To nominate and vote for our project, please go to:
