Lots of organizations from National Public Radio to the Canary in a Coal Mine film are asking for support these days, but we’re different – because we’re asking for so little.
We’re enjoyed our five-dollar a month November challenge to keep Health Rising going and growing so much that we’re keeping it running through December.
We think its a good investment. We’re putting out almost five blogs a week – on everything from new treatment approaches to the latest research to compelling stories. With thousands of page views a day, the website has grown substantially, and we’re on our third hosting upgrade to handle all the traffic… and we’ll be adding new programs shortly.
Our First Staff Person
We’re excited that we’ve been able to bring on board our first staff member, a past ME/CFS patient Stavya Grover, (read his story here), who is using his web programming and social media skills to help us grow.
The jist is that we’re moving up and we’re asking your help to maintain and expand Health Rising.
If you think you know Health Rising – you haven’t seen anything yet.

Thanks to everyone who helped Health Rising bring in about $75 from our Amazon.com sales last month – more than doubling our total from prior months :). With the holiday shopping season coming up (here now?) we hope for even better sales.
Health Rising gets from 4-10% of every purchase you make on Amazon.com through our Amazon.com search boxes for the U.S., the U.K. and Canada. Simple enter the product you want to buy in any of the search boxes found on the right hand side of the every page on the website (or on our Amazon.com shopping page) and you’ll be earning money for Health Rising while you shop.
