    OK, they’re open for business and I’ve just been the first voter! :)

    Very pleased to say that voting is very, very easy.

    Go to this page:

    http://www.sharethebounty.ca/charities.php

    Click on ‘N’ to find the National ME/FM Action Network – it’s the second on the list of charities beginning with ‘N’.

    Click on the ‘vote’ button next to it.

    Enter your email address, do the Captcha thing that proves you’re not a robot, tick that you accept the T&Cs, don’t tick the thing saying you want to be kept updated on stuff from Nature’s Bounty, hit the ‘vote’ button, that’s it.

    Until tomorrow!

    Don’t forget we have a thread on this for support and instruction – I’m just getting my info in early because I’m in the UK and everyone else will still be asleep for a bit...

    http://forums.phoenixrising.me/inde...0-voting-contest-help-faqs-and-updates.21764/

    Interestingly there are already some charities with votes even though it must be 5am in Canada. Here’s the leaderboard:

    · Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society 15
    · MANITOBA WILDLIFE REHABILITATION ORGANIZATION INC. 11
    · SENIOR ANIMALS IN NEED TODAY SOCIETY 8
    · WILD ROSE HUMANE SOCIETY 5
    · ASPERGER MANITOBA INC. 3

    As so often happens in these contests, charities for animals can get a lot of votes! Disease-specific charities need to work hard to overtake them but we can do it.

    Come on Europe and Oz! Let’s get some votes in before Canada wakes up and see if we can get onto the leaderboard - it might help us get attention and extra votes.

    And please help yourselves to my new signature. :cool:

    And another. I promise not to do this forever but it's exciting to see us going up the board at the beginning! We're the only one of these guys who's moving. The rest must have exhausted their support in this time zone! It's only 6:30 am in Canada now - it will be interesting to see what happens when they wake up.

    • MANITOBA WILDLIFE REHABILITATION ORGANIZATION INC.11
    • SENIOR ANIMALS IN NEED TODAY SOCIETY8
    • NATIONAL ME/FM ACTION NETWORK5

    Every vote has come from Phoenix Rising so far - I'm proud of us! :thumbsup:

    Let's all of us get the Action Network up the charts so when our Canadian friends wake up this morning they can have a big smile on their faces! :)

    If we can storm the board today, a lot of supporters of other charities will be discouraged and the less committed ones won't come back to do their daily voting. :devil:

    Mark is sending out the PR email newsletter any minute if he hasn't already and this is the lead item so I hope we'll get more votes from that. :)

    I have had a hiccup :(

    When trying to vote, I filled in the two security words...

    but then there is no 'enter' button so I cant gp forward from that page.

    Hi golden - just under the tickboxes for T&Cs and getting mailings, can you see a 'vote' button just under there? It's a little hard to see - it's pale purple on a dark purple ground with 'vote' in white letters.

    Edit: a cleverer person than me could provide a screenshot... :whistle:

    I've just strained my eyesight and read the rules and regs about the runner-up prizes (for those charities not in the top three at the end). The more votes your charity got, the more chances it has in the random draw for three more cash prizes - it's as though each vote is a ticket that gets thrown into a barrel and they shake them all up and draw three out.

    We've got every reason to vote like crazy - we get multiple shots at this! :)

    Hi everyone, I have been sending out links via Facebook, one thing to make things easier I have also linked Phoenix Rising but the link comes up with this

    http://phoenixrising.me/archives/15930

    Is there anyway to change the links name so it reflects what we are doing and usually a picture with the link. I find many people like that better. People are more likely to click the link this way. Thanks everyone for all of this write up and all your hard work!
