2020 has been hard, but OMS is here for you
Living with MS can be a real challenge, even in the best of times. Overcoming MS is here to help you live life to the full by taking control the best you can to manage your MS. We know that taking control has never felt harder in a year so unprecedented with the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are confident that better times are ahead
The pandemic has had a significant financial impact on Overcoming MS. We expect to end 2020 with 50% less than our expected annual income, a decrease of around £750,000. But we are strong because we have you, our wonderful supporters. OMSers like Alex, who kindly recorded a video in support of OMS to mark #GivingTuesday today.
We are more determined than ever to keep innovating and working hard over 2021. We promise to always use the funds you raise and donate wisely, and make an even bigger difference for more people affected by MS next year. This year we launched new webinars in response to COVID-19, and we carried on with our podcast, Circles, free books, and blog. And we have some really exciting plans ahead for 2021 which we can’t wait to share more with you in the new year.
Please #GiveBack 2020 today
Of course, we don’t do any of this work alone. We have felt so humbled by the support you have continued to show the charity this year. From our Ambassadors volunteering their time to support our Circles, fundraisers who have shaved their heads, run marathons alone, and organised virtual events, to the donors who have given so generously and spontaneously this year… thank you. The good that has come from what we have done this year has been for you, with you, and all thanks to you.
We hope you will join the global movement #GivingTuesday and #GiveBack2020 today to Overcoming MS. Please make an online donation now to support our work and help us all finish 2020 strong together.
Please remember there are lots of ways Overcoming MS can support you.
