About us

May12th Australia – May12th.org.au – is the Australian website for May12th International ME/CFS Awareness Day. We aim to showcase events and information related to May12th awareness (including through the week and month) and Light Up The Night within Australia.

This project is a collaboration between Australian ME/CFS charities and not-for-profits from all around Australia.

Financial supporters

If your business or organisation would like to financially support our May12th Australia project, please keep us in mind next time you are looking to make a donation to a charity or support an awareness campaign.


ME/CFS Australia Ltd.

ME/CFS Australia Ltd. awarded our organisation a $1,500 grant toward May12th website expenses in 2016, as part of their organisation’s contribution to funding projects that would benefit our Australian patient community. (Two other ME/CFS organisations were also grant recipients during that grant round). This $1,500 has allowed our team to focus on May12th rather than also spending that time fundraising for it, so we thank ME/CFS Australia for their financial support.

ME/CFS and Lyme Association of WA Inc.

As the founding organisation of this May12th Australia project back in 2015, we have financially backed this website and associated expenses since its inception, and will continue to for as long as we are able.
