    We now have posters which can be printed off and used to help promote the contest.

    They can be posted at doctor's offices, hospitals, libraries, natural food stores, grocery stores, etc.

    Please print and display these posters to get more votes!
    Posters are at bottom of webpage and there are instructions how to download posters on both the website and the photo below
    Please help us get more votes!

    We are less than 200 votes behind 3rd place - I know we can do this!

    The gap is closing:

    It looks like we are gaining ground and Reach for the Rainbow is losing some. I have been in contact with Reach for the Rainbow and they might be interested in partnering with us the last few weeks of the contest. They can only benefit from a few of our votes thrown their way and we can benefit from their voters giving us extra votes. Fingers crossed. I will be talking to the contact person from Reach for the Rainbow next week agian.

    Back to 204 behind. This seems to be the low point of the day.

    We're pulling back, wish we could get even a couple of hundred extra votes a day that would get us way in front of them - feel free to feel guilty if you aren't voting............

    These posters are a great idea and I am immensely grateful to whomever made them.

    But if I may just offer a bit of an advice. They are very cluttered. There's a lot of text and it's very difficult to see what the person is supposed to do, the so called "call to action". Maybe just write something simple like
    Help
    National ME/CFS Action Network
    win $20 000
    by voting on Nature Bounty's website

    and make that maybe take majority of the poster. It just seems a bit confusing and like there is a lot of unnecessary information that they don't need to decide to vote. And then put the info in the small letters at the bottom like it is right now, explaining what Me and Fibro. are. Just an idea :)

    Would it be better not to cross post? We've got two threads going on the contest and it might be better to post a message just once on a single (either) thread.

    Oh #@$!%:( I voted after I go home yesterday, between 11 pm and midnight. I just went to make my today's vote and they told me I could only vote once a day. The contest must be on Eastern time and I am on Central time, so Sunday here was Monday there. We are 191 behind right now.

    Reach for the Rainbow staff and coordinators are now voting for us! They will hopefully very soon ask their members to vote for ME/FM Action Network too.

    So please remember to also vote for Reach for the Rainbow daily. Their votes could win us 3rd and ours 1st for them.
