Regardless of what political party you are voting for, the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada is asking you to #ElectToFight for multiple sclerosis this fall. Building on an earlier awareness campaign, the MS Society of Canada, with help from voters across our country, is launching an online letter writing campaign to federal election candidates on September 10, 2015. Canadians are asked to join the fight to #endMS by sending a letter to their local candidates to ensure key decision makers know that our country has the highest rate of MS in the world, and that greater support is needed for those affected by Canada’s disease.
From September 10 to October 19, Canadians will be asked to help put MS on the political radar. By visiting endMS.ca, people can send a message to their local candidates to highlight the importance of secure jobs and income for people living with MS and the need to accelerate MS research. Using their postal code, Canadians can find their local candidates, customize their message and click send. Once the message has been sent, advocates can share their participation in the campaign by using #ElectToFight and encourage their networks to write to their local candidates to #endMS.

Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
