The ME (ME/CFS) Fundraising Group is planning to post a poll tomorrow on their Facebook page at: http://on.fb.me/twyeN3 to determine which of the ME/CFS nonprofits competing in the Chase Contest may have the best chance of winning. Because of a fewer number of votes this year allowed to each voter and the fact that nonprofits with operating expenses of up to $10 million are allowed to compete, we believe the competition will be more challenging for our ME/CFS nonprofits. Therefore, we believe it is necessary to have a voting strategy to help our ME/CFS community win. As far as we have heard (or judging by their completed profile pages), it appears that eight of our 24 nominated nonprofits are planning to compete in the contest. These nonprofits are: Phoenix Rising, Rocky Mountain, Wisconsin, New Jersey, OFFER, Enterovirus Foundation, NIDA, and HHV-6 Voundation. If you know of any others, please let us know. If you are not a member of Facebook, you could set up an account. If you are a Facebook member but not a Fundraising Group member, you could ask to join to take the poll. If the leaders of the competing nonprofits come up with a voting strategy, that will be given priority over the poll. We desperately want some of our nonprofits to win and feel very strongly a strategy is imperative for us to win. Thanks for your help!
