    Consider yourself not shot! Thanks for letting us know. We must have been pretty close - did they list the vote count?

    Glad to see that Reach for the Rainbow got $10k, at least - they look like they do a great job.

    Well done to everyone who voted and got others to vote - we tried very hard on this and we're building our pool of voters with each contest. The sky's the limit, with the number of PWME in the world. There are more contests and we'll be winning them! :)

    Bit of a bummer that...at least we look likely to win in something in the two current competitions (so long as people keep voting). You win some you lose some.

    Dear Friends:

    The National ME/FM Action Network is pleased to announce that it has received a $5,000 donation from Nature’s Bounty® Vitamins.

    We were entered in the Nature's Bounty on-line voting contest and received very strong support from our community. However, we finished in fourth place, with prizes going to the top three finishers. We are thrilled that Nature’s Bounty® Vitamins has recognized our community by making this donation above and beyond the contest prizes.

    A big thank you to Nature’s Bounty® Vitamins and a big thank you to the community which showed us so much support.

    Margaret Parlor
    President

    I am really pleased that they did this. It's nice that human beings actually got some money. Everybody worked so hard getting votes and voting. This really is such a positive outcome.:thumbsup: Thank You Nature's Bounty.

    This is really magnanimous of them. Is there any way that we can thank them? I do buy some Nature’s Bounty supplements and I think I will be looking to see if they manufacture anything else that I take.
