Eddie's Birthday is in two days time, on 6th January. Instead of sending gift

a social media network of his fans is organizing an initiative, where
people can donate to the Motor Neurone Disease Association. For more

Any small donation helps. You can be sure, Eddie will read you message!

"I’ve been working with people who suffer from motor neuron disease [Hawking’s affliction], 
and I’m one of the patrons of the MNDA, which is the British association. This disease has 
been around for over a hundred years or longer, and we’re not any closer to finding a cure. 
That has a lot to do with the fact that not many people have it, so pharmaceutical companies 
won’t invest in research. [Recently] there was the Ice Bucket Challenge, and people were 
critical of it because everyone was jumping on the bandwagon. But it was raising awareness. 
I think the disease has a branding problem because it’s called different things, like motor 
neuron disease, MND, in the UK, ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease..." - Eddie Redmayne

  1. I'm happy I could donate at last. I would have liked to do it earlier, but my credit card expired and I couldn't go to the city to activate the new card, because I was ill since New Years Eve. I've got a virus infection, but I'm well now. Please donate! Any small donation helps.
