    A good day yesterday....

    NIDA (Neuro-immune Disease Alliance) is in the top 100 with over 200 votes, Phoenix Rising is just out of the top 200 with 118 votes - we were actually in the bottom 400's yesterday (I counted wrong), Rocky Mountain has 25, New Jersey has 13, OFFER has 8 votes, who am I missing....

    Both Phoenix Rising and NIDA moved up quite a bit yesterday - a good sign. I am going to send out newsletters today and hopefully we'll climb more...

    Glad we are moving up. Unfortunately though, I must correct you Cort. It is not the top 200. It is the top 196 that get money. :( I was going over that last night.

    Yes it is unfortunate but it is true - the top 196, you're right...:)

    Very good news at the beginning of day 4: both NIDA and Phoenix Rising are in the top 100 - which wins them 20K. NIDA is up to 68th place! and Phoenix Rising is 93....

    These are major jumps from the first and second days. We're doing well in a very competitive environment! Thanks everyone sincerely for voting...

    I sent out a Phoenix Rising and a Forum newsletter yesterday..

    Today I'm going to focus on Facebook and getting the word out via email.

    Tomorrow we'll have a blog on what NIDA's doing - they're a great group that's is going to focus their support on a new international research effort....its quite exciting...

    Just had a thought. If members post in their 'status updates' something about Chase with a link, this will show on the main forum page -- guests and members -- on the menu to the right (user status updates) which will add more visibility for the contest.

    Sorry Kina, I'm lost. Are you talking about Facebook or PR? and exactly how to we do this?

    Sorry Aileen. I mean on PR. If you click on your user name at the top of the forum, a drop down menu will appear. Click on "Personal Details". You will see a box at says -- 'Status Message' -- if you write a message in the box and click on 'Save' at the bottom of the page, your message will appear on the main forum page to the right.

    Voted Cort - wouldn't it be nice if one day everything web could bring their act together and simplify (I may be bed-bound but those bounding about find things as difficult).

    I Just checked and PR has 332 votes right now.

    Can we double this amount in the next 24 hours?

    That would be great! We're 86th and NIDA is 54th! We both moved up and we're both at 20K! That's tremendous work - thanks everyone - lets keep moving!

    Neuro Immune Diseases Alliance (NIDA) is at 58th with 860 votes.

    Phoenix Rising an NEID Corporation is at 118th with 489 votes.

    If these two organizations can at least hold their positions they will win $20,000 and $10,000 respectively.

    The other ME/CFS organizations, I believe, are not on the leaderboard.

    On Monday Neuro Immune Diseases Alliance was at 54th and as of late yesterday 59th. Phoenix Rising was at 86th on Monday and late yesterday 129th. Six days remain in the contest. Don't let these organizations, which have a chance of winning, continue to slip in the standings. The contest ends the 19th.

    Please vote.

    As of 8:30 EST:

    Neuro Immune Diseases Alliance (NIDA) is 63rd with 1085 votes.

    Phoenix Rising an NEID Corporation 142nd with 551 votes.

    These two organizations, which have been in the running to win cash, continue to slide in the standings.
