    Just thought I should remind you all the the voting for the chase competition begins again tommorow.
    What shell we do in order to have the WPI win as much money as possible?
    I know that publishing a request to vote for us on forums that are made for exchanging votes has gotten us some votes in the 1st round.


    This is so, so important!

    This is the link to the contest, you should write "Whittemore Peterson Institute" in order to find the WPI:

    There is now a shortcut to the WPI page on the contest - you should just enter that page and click to vote button (it would be better to use this link if you publish posts on forums an stuff to get people to vote for the WPI):

    The Whittemore Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Disease (WPI) was created to answer a critical need for discovery and medical treatments for those with serious illnesses that impact the body and the brain. These often debilitating and life-long diseases, including M.E., CFS, fibromyalgia, post Lyme disease, GWI and autism, have too few medical solutions. WPI continues to make significant strides through the work of our innovative research program. Translating novel research into effective patient treatments for millions around the world will begin with the opening of our 10,000 sq. ft. medical facility. Here we can engage in revealing clinical trials and provide onsite care to those who are unable to afford care. We require funding for initial expenses and to establish a patient fund. WPIs commitment to discovery has already inspired much hope worldwide. Now it is time to put hope into action by offering meaningful patient care to these underserved populations.

    Please place this message at then end of each email for the week:

    Please take a moment to vote and ask your friends and family to vote too!!! Chase Community Giving is giving us a chance to win a $500,000.00 grant for the Whittemore Peterson Institute.

    Links for the two organizations are:

    (i) the CFIDS Association of America:

    (ii) the Whittemore Peterson Institute

    ETA: I set up a specific thread to discuss it: rather than have a discussion spread over lots of threads.
