    A few days ago i was afraid we would not reach top-200, but things are starting to look good now. If we keep up this tempo we should get there.

    Not sure if people are using this, but PANDORA asked people to leave a comment after voting, something to this effect:

    What a great cause! so glad to see so many working for positive change in the world!

    If you are looking for another great cause to cast a vote for, please consider P.A.N.D.O.R.A. known in the contest as PATIENT ALLIANCE NEUROENDOCRINEIMMU DISORDERS ORG FOR RESECH & ADV INC. We assist individuals with chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Chronic Lyme disease, multiple chemical sensitivities and Gulf War Illness.

    So my sister used all 20 votes and sent me her 2 gift votes. I noticed how I could not use both on PANDORA, but I used 1 of the extras and tried to post on A Spring of Hope since they are/were #2 with 9K+ votes! but for some reason it did not let me leave a message as I posted above!

    Can I still get more gift votes from someone else and use 1 on PANDORA again?

    They seem to be updating it more than twice a day now.

    It's not safe yet.

    93th now.

    Gap is now 186 (11 closer )
    PANDORA: 865
    200th position: 679

    ETA: I have just posted on a few more Facebook ME/CFS groups. I'm not a member of any Fibromyalgia groups so haven't posted there. If one searches for M.E., CFS, Fibromyalgia, etc., one can find them. I haven't been finding many plugs for PANDORA except one on June 17. People sending more reminders would be good.

    (Slightly off-topic)

    Last time it registered with me (probably in last 48 hours), they were in 3rd place and on 10,xxx.
    Then today they jumped on the leaderboard to 12,984.
    Click on them now and they are 16,000!

    So since the leaderboard was last updated, they got 3,000 votes!

    Could we change the name of this thread so that it can get more attention? Or better yet, why don't we start a new thread so that there is not much to read for newcomers. Maybe something like "PANDORA desperately needs your help to win $250,000 - only a few days left!" And of course include the instructions on how to vote.

    I'd go with another thread with whatever title you like. Us anoraks (??) (or maybe that's just me!) can still have this thread for updating on the votes and the like.

    damn, the gap should be at least 50 to 75 votes, for the last day. We can expect a final sprint from the causes behind us.

    In this situation, I think it is necessary.

    There are at least 51 new people on it (as there were 259 on June 20th and now 310 - presuming it went up to 259).

    Also, initially WPI got a lot more votes than PANDORA so some of the people who got it might not have voted for PANDORA.

    But up to Frank.

    Although of course we could sprint too. PANDORA covers so many conditions it should have a good chance if groups can be mobilised.

    when is the dead line - 13 th of July? it will be really frustrated if we will lose it - at least for me. maybe we can try to ask the people who will be in chat room? or is it not possible to send an email or an appel to all the members of this forum? like their could see it on their notification or something like this

    People could add it into their signature until the end.

    That would mean anytime they post, it would show up. Also it shows up on messages you have already posted.
