    This article went live a little while ago and has had one view so I thought it would be interesting to post votes now so we can see them going up (I hope!).

    We're currently chasing third by a mere 66 votes!

    Thanks Sasha for this article - perfect. These things make a difference, especially as we are now reaching the business end of the competition. I really hope people read this and vote because it could go either way by a tiny number of votes. Each vote really does count and every dollar we get for an ME/CFS/FM charity anywhere in the world, helps to increase awareness, and hel patients get the help and research that we all need.

    Thanks snowathlete - yes, there's currently about 60 votes in it and it's going to be incredibly close.

    When you think what we'd have to do to raise $5,000 through donations, and this is just free money...

    Thanks Sasha . I just voted in this for the first time and want to tell everyone this one is VERY EASY to vote in unlike some of the other competitions. It took me only about 15 seconds so please do vote.

    (I'd been worried about that thingy in which one needs to prove one wasnt a robot as much of the time I cant work out the letters of that kind of thing but on this one, it was easy to get the letters and words **fingers crossed its like that all the time).

    We are down currently about 80 votes so every vote will make a difference. (I'll try to get my family voting too).

    Great to hear tania. By the way, if you ever do get a tricky Captcha text thingy, then you can press the blue refresh button to the side of it for another one that will likely be easier, but generally they arent too bad on this site.

    Thanks, Tania - you and your family's extra votes will be very important. We're really at the every-vote-counting stage.

    I'm starting to quite enjoy the weird Captcha words - some of them are quite funny!

    Doing much better , less than 50 behind. Every single vote is important so ask your neighbours, church friends, Facebook friends, etc to all vote!

    We've had an overnight boost and are now 6 votes behind third place, thanks to a tireless supporter who has negotiated the support of Reach for the Rainbow, who are now voting for us - we must vote for them! We can help assure them first place and they can help us bag third.

    So, please everybody, vote for us and use your second vote for Reach for the Rainbow!

    As a reminder for myself to vote everyday, I added the voting website to my bookmarks and placed it first in the top line of my browser. I can add and delete the contests that are running and it helps me to remember.

    I also know that the "fundraising and contest" group has created a daily reminder email list you can subscribe to which will remind you to vote as most of us, me included, have very short term memories.

    ME/CFS Charity Competitions Voting Reminder Service:

    https://groups.google.com/forum/embed/?place=forum/me-cfs-charity-competitions-voting-reminder-service#!forum/me-cfs-charity-competitions-voting-reminder-service

    Each contest wins not only money for funding ME/CFS orgs, but brings this illness into much needed public attention.

    As it is OK to vote for 2 orgs on the same day, I am also voting for "Reach for the Rainbow" which is another organization that helps people who cannot always help themselves, like us.

    Thanks to all those who have put so much effort into making great strides for our cause.

    I voted for Reach for the Rainbow as well as our group, and also made a made a post on their Facebook page so they know I'm voting for them. https://www.facebook.com/ReachForTheRainbow/posts/482390205160811

    I have a link to contest in my daily bookmarks as well. (I have several websites/forums that I visit each day in my bookmarks.)
