    Hi Tuha,

    Thanks for the offer. Esther12 and I have already shared our gift votes. So, I have already voted twice for PANDORA. I gave my other gift vote to my husband.

    If you still have one available you might also post it on the blog I wrote for Non-Facebook users (it's on the front page). Maybe if someone gets motivated to set up an account you can share gift votes there.

    Either the last one was an error or there is a huge jump in the base vote.

    PANDORA have gone down 13 places to 126th. :(

    Gap is now 118 (56 closer!!! - however I think there was an error earlier)
    PANDORA: 1122
    200th position: 1004.

    So over the last 24 hours: 5 further away. :Retro smile:

    This will definitely be my last update.

    I think these are probably worthwhile organizations, but I think we should probably use some of our votes on some of the big "tickets/high count sites" we are not going to touch them, but we can get more EXPOSURE for PANDORA and our cause!

    Tips:

    Tips:

    1) You should cast all of your 20 votes. After you vote for 5 non profit organizations you get an extra "gift vote" to give to someone to vote, and again when you cast all your 20 votes. The gift vote is an opportunity for your to vote twice when someone gives you a gift vote. It is also an opportunity you can give to a friend, when you send them your "gift vote", giving everybody a chance to vote twice for a favorite charity. Obviously we hope you will use a "gift vote you receive" to cast another vote for P.A.N.D.O.R.A., meaning you will vote for P.A.N.D.O.R.A. twice.

    2) If you vote for another organization make sure you add a comment to their site with the link to the voting page:

    Here is a suggested blurb:


    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. Here is our link: http://apps.facebook.com/chasecommunitygiving/charities/550795076-p...

DBA as P.A.N.D.O.R.A. is holding a very good ranking on Chase Community Giving. We are the only organization from within our overall Neuroendocrineimmune Disorders (NEIDs) Community that has made to the top 200.

    Yes Tuha. PANDORA has 1333 votes and has now dropped to 140th place in the last update this afternoon. The 200th place charity has 1255 votes. This is going to be close. We need more votes. I have contacted everyone I know (which unfortuantely is not a lot of people). My freinds and family have put in about 10 votes in the last couple of days. It would be great if as a group we could just stretch that little more to the finish line.
