Thanks @Firestormm, and thanks too to @Tom Kindlon for all the great work.
Note you can only endorse Tom for one category at a time, so if you want to endorse him for Health Activist hero and Twitter best in show that's 2 steps. A pain, but only a small one
@Firestormm its funny I saw that on fb the day after I was reading toms stuff in pub med.....at the time of reading in pubmed I was thinking yeeeeeeaaah! go tom!!!
Thanks for the reminder because I got distracted and forgot to do it.............Done now!
and thanks TOM KINDLON!
I endorse this Tom.
Nominated Tom for both categories. It's pretty easy - took me twenty seconds - and is well deserved, I think.
Endorsed! And deservingly so!
Endorsed. Thank you, Tom and thanx, Firestormm.
Oh, I see, I just visited the page again and endorsed him for both also!
Thanks very much, @Firestormm <blush>.
And thanks guys for the kind words and nominations/endorsements.
I'm just part of a wider team.
In the Irish ME/CFS Association, lots of people have helped over the years esp. my mum and Orla Ní Chomhraí.
And, in the ME world, I've learned from lots of people over the years. And am grateful for the work lots of people are doing now or have done in the past.
Thanks to everyone trying, in whatever way they feel able and feel is best, to make a difference.
Mission Accomplished !
Thanks Tom for all you do for all of us !
All done here too. Thanks to PR for giving me the opportunity to vote for my favourite ME hero.
Lovely to see your cheery face too, Tom.
Thanks for the article @Firestormm
Thanks for all the hard work you do @Tom Kindlon.
I have added my nominations.
Already done - good luck, Tom!
You can do all the 'Thank yous' in your tearful acceptance speech!
Appreciate Tom, very much xxxxxx
I see WEGO Health have now put how many endorsements I've got on my Health Activist Awards nomination page: https://awards.wegohealth.com/nominees/tom-kindlon-230.
381 at the moment. Thanks all.
WegoHealth have just sent out the following:
Thought I might as well mention it as I had a look at some other people and my endorsement count (393) is higher than any others I saw.
This competition isn't really important so I feel a bit bad mentioning it but I've always had a bit of a competitive streak.
That's odd, it says in your quote Tom that endorsements can be once a day, which I don't think I knew when writing, but I just tried and it says I have already voted for you, so wont allow me to again.
Oh well. Hopefully, once is sufficient to get you through to the final at least
Thanks Firestormm. I hadn't read it closely when I posted it and hadn't noticed about voting daily. To be honest, I find that a bit ridiculous: it's not like a voting competition where a non-profit is up for a prize. I'm hoping that is an error and people can only vote once per nomination (I'm in three categories now). I don't expect anybody to vote daily for me.
Two other people from the ME/CFS world, that I know of, have pages people can endorse:
continues at: https://awards.wegohealth.com/nominees/maria-gjerpe-1919
Maria has 633 votes. As she is in just one category, Health Activist Hero, all the votes are for this category. I imagine this means she has a very good chance of becoming a finalist through votes alone (there are two ways to be a finalist).
Jennie Spotila is up in the "Best in Show: Blog" category for www.occupycfs.com
People can endorse either or both of them daily till the end of January.
