Can You Come for a Visit? My ME/CFS Says No
My daughter and son-in-law just had a baby last week. We are thrilled. But we won't be able to see the baby or hold her any time soon. We won't be able to take over little gifts or help out with housework or babysitting.

Aviva! Your vote can help fund a year of ME/FM awareness in Canada!

    Well, I think I voted. The resulting page is just text. It says that the vote date is October 4, 2013 at 12:33am. It is October 3, 2013 at 11:33 pm here, so I missed a day of voting.

    I mean I know dogs are cool and everything, but when compared to helping people with ME, there really is a need to prioritize! See the Leader Board

    Only 10 days left to go in this round... Imagine how much awareness can be raised with $100,000... A strong awareness campaign in Canada next year WILL have positive impact around the world!

    Please share the main article with instructions on your Facebook pages and let's keep voting!! :)

    Just voted.

    We're holding 10th place, by 20 votes at the moment - and we need to be in the top 10 to reach the semi-final.

    So keep voting and tell your friends!

    I communicated with Mark (admin) about sending out an email to PR subscribers - we did it already for many contests in the past and it always helped to bring many votes. He agreed but unluckily he has holidays now. He said that he will try to manage it but it´s not sure.
    Is here maybe another admin who could do it?

    Anyway I dont know where is mistake with this contest but we are getting only something more than 200 daily votes. It´s far behind what we were able in the past, which was around 1 000 daily votes. We are sleeping somehow so if you are able to do some more efforts, just do it - we need money for our organisations. Contact your support groups, friends, family members,... I have good experiences if I am on facebook and I see there a friend on-line - I do a small chat with him and I ask him to vote - noone refused. But if you only send an email to your friends - only few will vote, which is of course also good - we need every vote.

    I am seeing what can be done. I know the newsletter went out the other day and I think it contained this article; but if we can follow-up with a specific email then we will.

    Yeah I don't know why people aren't voting. It's so easy to do. Doesn't cost anything, and there's nothing else around at the moment. So no distractions - well apart from the HHS stuff - but that shouldn't stop people from doing this!

    I'll get back to you :)

    Incidentally, we seem to have surged back up to 9th! Good work people!

    There's only a couple of votes in it tho, so we need to keep going

    Tuha We sent the above email to our 3,000 + subscribers. Hopefully, that might get people voting :balloons:

    A tweety-bird told me you might be planning to light Niagara up again as well as other monuments in Canada.

    A most excellent notion :)
