    Sasha Fine, thank you

    Outstanding! Fingers crossed for the audit but I can't believe we'd have a dodgy vote problem out of proportion to any of the others. Thanks again for putting up a great video, Helen!

    Now that was exciting! It reminded me of the Chase Community Giving project when we pulled it out at the last minute for PANDORA last year.

    We did indeed 'rise from the ashes' at the last minute. Two days before the contest ended IGIVE docked us about 40% of our votes - pushing us to 9th place and out of the $250 slot. We fought back and Phoenix Rising rose to 7th place (subject to audit) with about a hundred vote cushion. If we stay at 8 or above we win $300. (And we started halfway through it :))

    Thank you all for the your great efforts! In particular thanks to our creative contest entrepeneur - looking all over the web for ways for ME/CFS non-profits to raise money - Frank - for conceiving of the contest and to Helen41 - our turnip video specialist - for creating the best and most unique IGIVE video.

    Thanks in particular for helping out - Sasha, Merry, Dolphin, Tuha, MaryB, InTuneJune, ggingues, shannah, Tony, urbanTravels, nielk and those I missed. Your support on the Forums was critical...

    A quarter of the winnings will go to another non-profit. Now is the time to vote to see who the lucky non-profit will be. Here's the link for voting
