ME/CFS and the Magic of the Canine Factor
There's been plenty of research indicating that having pets is good for your health. I never really noticed any particular benefits to having cats, though that may have had more to do with my cats. They've been fairly indifferent to my presence and we've shared a live-and-let-live...

    Good idea Dolphin, though I wonder if we've tapped our resources here on this particular forum for votes. I suppose/hope people who have already voted themselves may get motivated to spread the word to friends. Patient Alliance (Pandora) has now dropped down to 85th (dropping 8 places since yesterday) with 736 votes, with the next charities in the rankings in close pursuit.

    Please vote for 20K for Pandora! It's free, it's easy, it's for OUR cause.

    There was controversy last time for winners about new voters. Offer to set facebook up for some cfs friends.

    Don't give up! July pepsi fresh won't require facebook.

    I already sent the email to 2 of the support groups I attend, but I don't know how many people are on Facebook? Can't be there to hold there hand, even though I would like to help people out more than I can/do!

    An perhaps some of efforts in this and other avenues will pay off! We need to remain hopeful but realistic.

    There are lots and lots of ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia Facebook groups where one can write on their wall and ask people to vote. Although probably best not to do too many at once as I think Facebook notes spammers (I was given a warning before). But if a few of us could do some, it could cover lots of groups. By writing to Facebook groups, you are writing to people who are already signed up to FB. Don't just do US groups - there is no reason people in other countries couldn't vote.

    I think it's best to go by the leaderboard even if it hasn't been updated for a little while. If one clicks on the charity that was in 200th position, it isn't necessarily in 200th position with the votes one sees when one clicks on it - it could be in a better or worse position than 200th position.

    Of course, maybe in the final 48 (say) hours of the competition, one might want more regular updates but best then to look at 196-200th or 191-200th positions.

    (or can you see 200th position in some other way than the leaderboard????)

    PANDORA: 788
    200th position: 582
