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.

    $1,000 is being given to a Michigan nonprofit every day for 15 days by Mercantile Bank of MI. The winner will be the highest vote getter for the day. Please vote daily from around the world at:http://bit.ly/PTQblx

    On the last day, there will be a drawing to see which one of the participating nonprofits will receive $5,000!

    This is a nice contest for CFS Solutions, and I think we can win with everyone's help. Thanks!

    Does this just give us a daily tally or is it cumulative?

    Does anyone know at what hour of the day the voting starts? Yesterday and today when I tried to vote I got the message "Voting has ended." I remembered yesterday to try again later in the morning and was able to vote.

    I too couldn't vote earlier and now I can. I think we can each vote once within a 24 hour period so that if you voted at 10:00am today, you can't vote till 10:01am tomorrow.

    I just voted, and the number is 57. About how many votes are we aiming for for a win? Oh, never mind. I see you say CFS Solutions is presently tied for first in today's contest. Thanks, everyone, for information and votes.

    Hi Merry. You can only vote once every 24 hours, so it you vote at 2:00 PM one day, you need to wait until after 2:00 the next. I'm assuming that they stop voting at midnight.

    We are getting further ahead, 40 ahead of 2nd place currently :)

    CFS Solutions won! Thanks so much to members of the ME (ME/CFS) Fundraising Group who stayed up late to bring in the votes. Thanks to everyone on Phoenix Rising who participated.
