    I checked again how the organisations grow up after 21 hours. I checked exactly at the hour when it will finish because sometimes the results depends when you check because we have a lot of european and australian voters. During the last 21 hours we grow the most from the organisations between 10th - 14 th positions but the differences were not too significant to help us. So it means we need more votes - we are around 579 votes behind the 10 th position. Here are the results:

    1. Undercurrent Youth Centre – 10432 (+1647)
    2. Une vraie cour d'école pour ados! – 9872 (+1488)
    3. Riehl skate park – 9607 (+1158)


    4. Fighting for Healthy, Affordable Food in North End Halifax - 9104 (+1252)
    5. Stay Strong Nick Roma 8335 (+1261)

    6. Nouveau gymnase pour notre club de gymnastique Les Hirondelles – 8191 (+1286)
    7. Exoskeleton for Trevor Greene, Canadian Veteran – 8015 (+1137)
    8. Harder-4-Carter: The Carter Antila Memorial SkatePark – 7464 (+809)
    9. Un préau pour L'École des Enfants-de-la-Terre – 6927 (+1246)
    10. Projet Paradis / Paradis Project – 6811 (+1007)

    11. Non-profit Companion Animal Hospital & Shelter – 6707 (+966)
    12. Castle Park's "Play for ALL", universally accessible playground – 6487 (+768)
    13. The Power of Play - A Barrier Free Playground – 6358 (+960)
    14. Medical equipment for a new chronic diseases clinic in Vancouver – 6232 (+1010)
    15. Vera M. Welsh & community of Lac La Biche needs a new playground 5901 (+1061)

    16. Building Change -A New Shelter for the RCSPCA 5102 (+709)
    17. Sensory Therapy Room for kids at Lutherwood 5035 (+440)
    18. Sports for all 4912 (+584)

    We have recently been overtaken by http://www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf14955 - Vera M. Welsh & community of Lac La Biche needs a new playground. This project was right at the bottom in the first days of the contest and now seems to be accelerating. There could be others that can suddenly have the ability to rally lots of votes.

    So we all need to vote and ask as many people as possible!

    Just a reminder - there may be votes thrown out at the end of the contest if fraudulent activity is found, so let's keep voting and voting no matter how we look on a given day. The first phase of this contest we barely squeaked in, only after they adjusted the vote counts.

    just one idea. we should try to involve more kids in this contest. Kids have often a lot of friends and iif they are a bit motivated they can bring a lot of votes. So if you have a kid in your family just ask him if he can promote our organisation between his friends.

    While we are not currently winning in number of votes, we are carrying a huge, round the world awareness campaigns for the most neglected diseases of the developed world. Thank you so much for those wh have voted and shared this contestentry to their networks.

    Being banned from Facebook, I have shared the contest on Twitter, sent to all the MP and MPP, have had a few noteworthy retweets which made my work all worthy. Being in Vancouver I have alerted the media, have shared with several health care groups and mentioned the supportive groups to the Bc Women's Foundation.

    Speaking of which, they were impressed, almost 2 weeks ago to have had 100 views of the Dr Bested video, which speaks volumes about the neglect. By now, They have 1280 views. I am sure they are pleased with their investment.

    So like I said, we may not be on the top, but we win for we are spreading much needed awareness.

    Thank you. Keep on voting!

    I have made my last votes. The contest is over in less that half a day. I don’t see any way to “unregister”. Maybe I will change my password to “password” in case there is another contest and I forget who I was voting for this time.

    I see our votes per day has risen, but we dropped to 16th place. Where is Tuha? I trust his figures more than what is on the Aviva site. Does anyone know when the official results will be posted?

    VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
