    We need to be in the top 10 in our group (medium) to get to the finals. Currently we are lagging behind in 19th place. We need to make up a couple hundred votes today if we want to get in the game.

    I voted. Don't know why there are so few voters.
    Can those w/ blogs/websites/other such things post a link about this ?
    I will email friends. I got some to vote for the first round. But sadly, most don't want to bother. I don't think they think it will make any difference or something. *sigh*

    By helping the Canadian group w/ help all of us.

    Thanks for the support beaker. It is much appreciated.

    Unfortunately this is what happens when a Canadian group needs help. The rest of the mostly world ignores us. A number of us have been key players in helping many American groups win funds. They get the votes from our community. But when it is our turn, it's a different story. It is even more discouraging considering we gave the ME/CFS/FM community the CCC and the US has given us nothing but grief.

    Here are the discouraging stats from this contest:

    In 1st place so far: an animal charity -- 4200 votes (approx)
    2nd. playground -- 3500
    3 & 4th. animals -- 3490 & 2730
    5th. playground -- 2400
    6th. education -- 2252
    7th. aminals -- 2150
    8 & 9th. more playgrounds -- 2115 & 2190

    10 & 11& 12th. more animals -- 2080, 1980 & 1940
    13th. gym club -- 1939
    14th. playground --1875
    15th. visually impaired -- 1865
    16, 17 & 18th. schools and camp -- 1750, 1665 & 1625
    19th. bus for school -- 1475

    20th. May 12th Awareness (that's us) 1415
    21st. animals (again!) -- 1412
    22 & 23rd -- more schools 1360 & 1357
    24 & 25 -- playgrounds 1320 & 1290
    26. school -- 1265
    27. arts -- 1144
    28. school -- 950
    29. playgrounds -- 920, 480 & 425

    ... and these dismal numbers despite the number of patients in this community who are online. :cry:
