    Please could you take time to vote for Invest in ME, they stand to win 200 if voted cause of the month - you may have to register first


    For those in the UK who register, please consider registering your cause as Invest in ME then using this site when buying anything online as a percentage of your purchase will then go to Invest in ME at no cost to yourself. IiME have said the money will be used for he proposed research and treatment centre in Norwich.

    "...can non UKers vote? And "1,2, 3--how do we do this?"
    I tried to work this out, too. As per the terms you need to be a permanent resident of the UK in order to join:
    http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/terms/
    You have to register with your name, email-address and a password.
    The "click here to join"-link is useless. To register click "account" in the right upper corner. Then go to "register to support a cause" under the "not registered yet"-heading and take it from there.

    I am in Canada and I joined and voted.

    I had a bit of trouble with it - have to register first and then close and then go back to vote.

    When picking the cause there is an alphabetical list so go to the "I's" and then can type in Invest in ME

    If I can do It, people in the USA probably can too

    I just voted from Switzerland and it worked without any problem.

    All you need to do is to go here http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/blog/cause-of-the-month-shortlist-please-vote/#more-4489, sign up and vote. It's a one time vote and there is no Facebook required. Voting will end on the 30th and currently Invest in ME is leading with 73 votes total, the runner up has 41 votes. Let's make sure they win, it's no big effort and will help them.

    Only 5 days left

    Hi, hope im not being thick, but ivew registered IiME as my cause but cannot find a link to vote for them as the cause of the month. Does it happen automatically -it doesnt seem to but i have spent ages searching the site and cant work out how to vote. I can work out how to raise money by shopping through the site, but not the voting. Anyone able to point me in the right direction?
    Im sure we could win this easily if more people registered and voted.
    Thanks, Justy.

    Please everyone vote - we all need to stick together and help with money raising wherever we can. I know some think "its not my country" but, in the end it is going to help us all. We need some help for the next generation and its up to us to do it. If we can get it by charity voting, lets do it, its a lot easier then waiting for the government to help.

    Invest in ME now has a slight lead of some 20+ votes. Please vote, if you haven't done so already. It's a one time vote and doesn't require Facebook.

    Even though it's not a lot of money it will bring Invest in ME and ME/CFS more publicity and recognition.

    I guess that's because you got logged out again. Try to log in again and then go to the voting page. This should work.
