Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    Canada's National ME/FM Action Network (famous for the Canadian Consensus Criteria) want to set up a biomedical research fund and want to win $100,000 to start it.

    Free money, my friends! Free research money and as ever, biomedical research helps us wherever we are in the world. You can vote from anywhere in the world. Voting starts from noon ET (5pm UK time) today (Monday 29 Sept).

    It's daily voting and doesn't need Facebook. Go here and vote!

    53 votes so far - we're already behind some animal charities (we're animals too! :aghhh:) but from my memory of Aviva contests, I think at this stage we're voting to get into the next stage.

    Is that right, @frenchtulip?

    Get voting, everybody, and tell all your friends! You don't need Facebook and this will be FREE RESEARCH MONEY!!! :nerd::nerd::nerd:

    I couldn't see a sign out button on the page. It's hiding from me.

    I think there was a sign out button in the last Aviva one I voted in. Looks like I will be staying signed in for this one, that's fine.
