    Bumping this one...we're a long way behind and need many more people to vote. $5,000 makes a big difference to a small organisation like ME/CFS Australia.

    John Holding's dream is in 5th place. I believe only one prize is awarded. John's dream has 247 votes, and first place has 596.

    I just voted!

    So, as far as I can see this is open to anyone no matter where they are in the world - right?

    I had to find the email in my "spam" box, but it was there.

    I clicked it and it took me back to the contest page with a link to see the group I voted for.

    DONE! :)

    All it took was following the instructions that have been written above and less than 1 min to find it in my "spam box".

    This would be a very simple way to have another ME/CFS org get money to help all of us. Please, if you can post in a thread here, please, please help the orgs that keep us together fighting for all of us!

    We must unite!

    Just voted with 4 days, 22 hours, and 13 minutes to go. GO, GO, GO vote!

    It looks like two dreams win each month.

    It is unclear if International votes will count for this one. The rules were a bit hard to access, but they say "...Voting for this Grant Competition is open to both Sunsuper members and non-Sunsuper members whom are Australian residents. Entrants can also cast a vote for their favourite entry...."

    I suppose we can only keep our fingers crossed they won't be deducted :(

    I checked with the organisers and it's only Australian residents who are eligible to vote. Sorry folks, I should have checked earlier... It doesn't matter much this time as we're 400 odd votes behind. Maybe John could enter again another month.
