    Note: they call voting in Round 1, "endorsing". This is not a suggestion for Round 2, just Round 1 (i.e. thru' June 11):

    done, but it seems like you need more voters, it appears you have been about 200 behind number 20 for a day or so. FYI

    Yes, I did some analyses 10 hours or so ago on the 24 hours up to that:
    The Rocky Mountain CFS/ME & FM Association: 271 + 42 = 323

    20th position: 449 + 70 = 519

    So gap increased by 28 to 198.

    It will be very tough for the Rocky Mountain CFS/ME & FM Association to qualify.

    4 ME-type charities qualified for Round 2:

    - IACFS/ME International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & ME
    http://www.vivint.com/givesbackproject/charity/1124

    - National ME/FM Action Network
    http://www.vivint.com/givesbackproject/charity/855

    - Nightingale Research Foundation
    http://www.vivint.com/givesbackproject/charity/1129

    - Whittemore Peterson Institute
    http://www.vivint.com/givesbackproject/charity/769

    Hard luck, Rocky Mountain CFS/ME & FM Association.

    Voting for Round 2 started today. I think only really the Whittemore Peterson Institute and maybe the National ME/FM Action Network have a chance of winning their region (i.e. voting for a group that doesn't have a chance of winning its region is a waste, in my opinion).
