To mark my 32nd birthday today, I have come up with an idea to raise money for two charities that are respectively trying to solve the two diseases that I have been acutely ill with for over 13 years now: severe Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and also Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Both are currently incurable so research is desperately needed to find a cure or effective treatment in order that nobody ever has to suffer like this in the future.

Event details

Five by Five

My idea is called Five by Five. Hopefully it will be a fun thing for you to do, as well as raising a lot of money. What I would like everyone to do is make a video in which you tell us your five favourite things of all time in the following five categories: books, films, TV shows, sport and songs. In the video, nominate 5 people to make a Five by Five video too. Then share the video online! Everyone who makes a Five by Five video has to donate some money, as little or as much as you want and are able, to this Five by Five page. The two charities for which this page is raising money are M.E. Research UK and Annabelle's Challenge. Remember to include the link to this fundraising page in your video and encourage people to donate. To give you an example of a Five by Five video, you can watch my video, which is linked to here on this page. It's also here:
