    frenchtulip reports that a member of the Fundraising Group (Facebook) got clarification from Citgo about voting, and we can vote for both Western Michigan Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Support Group (CFS Solutions) and for CFS Knowledge Center. These two groups are in different regions in Citgo's Fueling Good contest and not competing against each other. Four winners will be chosen from each region.

    Thanks to ggingues for pointing out that CFS Knowledge Center is also in the contest and bringing up the issue of whether we can vote for both ME/CFS organizations. Thanks to the member of the ME (ME/CFS) Fundraising Group at Facebook who contacted Citgo.

    now I can't get either one. Is it the storm? I hope people in Michigan and elsewhere in the affected areas are okay.

    I just tried both links, and they worked. The storm may make service intermittent. I don't know. If people have trouble voting, I hope that they will think to try again later.

    thanks for the voting reminders. I forget the ones that are not super-high-profile like Aviva etc.
