Vote from Any Country for ME/FM Charity to Win $20,000!

 The first thing to say about this: you don’t need Facebook!

The second thing: you don’t have to be in Canada to vote!

The third thing… well, time to give you the details…

Nature’s Bounty, a long-established manufacturer of vitamins and food supplements, is running an online voting contest for Canadian charities. The National ME/FM Action Network has entered.

The Action Network is probably best-known internationally for spearheading the development of the Canadian Consensus Criteria.

It’s hard to overstate the importance of rigorous diagnostic criteria in this disease: we all owe the Action Network a debt for this contribution to diagnosis and research. The Network also hosted the 2011 IACFS/ME Conference in Ottawa. But as well as these international achievements, for the past twenty years the Action Network has supported patients through advocacy, education, information, and promoting research. It’s the main charity for the 750,000 people in Canada with ME or FM.

So it’s well worth supporting the Action Network in the contest. The top three winners will get $20,000, $10,000 and $5,000 respectively. Of the remaining charities, three will be chosen at random to each win $5,000. US dollars and Canadian dollars are worth the same: $20,000 is about £13,000 or 15,000 Euros. That would be a considerable boost to any national ME/FM charity.

Voting opens on Tuesday, 26 February, and continues with one vote allowed per day until Friday, 29 March.

At the time of writing, voting instructions have not appeared but if you go to the Nature’s Bounty contest webpage, all should become clear on the day.

There’s a big push behind the Action Network for this contest: a team of supporters has already been posting widely on the net to drum up support. Let’s help them win.

Got any questions? We’ve got a thread for that! The competition looks straightforward but the first post in this thread will be updated with instructions and help if any problems emerge.

Have you heard about other contests? Many, many small prize contests are announced in local papers, on the radio, and so on. If you notice any, please message helen41 so that she and the fundraising team can look into them. Every dollar helps!

I bet the birds don't feel guilty… :cool:

I was going to make an awful joke there about being knocked off our perch but, naaah…

Eh, we feed birds all winter and let them eat the extra berries in the summer … they'll manage :D

We've just sent out an email to people on the PR newsletter (I think) list reminding them about the contest, that it's daily voting, to rope in friends and family, etc. – let's hope we get some extra votes! :)

Just voted. We are catching up to third. Looks like the mailout helped. Well done, lets sustain it and keep pushing!

snowathlete March 7, 2013 at 7:59 am

We have gone from more than 500 behind third last night to just a little over 300 behind now.

  • REACH FOR THE RAINBOW ONTARIO 9420
  • Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society 9085
  • MOUNTAINAIRE AVIAN RESCUE SOCIETY 5432
  • NATIONAL ME/FM ACTION NETWORK 5114
  • SENIOR ANIMALS IN NEED TODAY SOCIETY

Thats massive progress and judging by the new message on the site, they have spotted some irregular voting: Feel free to encourage your friends and family to vote, but please do not vote on behalf of any third party as we may disqualify such votes.

So, we should not assume that we are in third because for all we know one of the groups ahead of us in the top three may be docked points. There was certainly one day where some voting looked very odd with one of those groups…we will have to wait and see, but I'm just pointing out that it isnt over till its over, and the top 5 is really just a guide I think.
We can still get one of the top three prizes.

Still very much all to play for – time of day effects, the weekend coming up when many people will forget to vote (but not us!), maybe some dodgy votes to get cleaned out of the system before the end, all sorts of things – so let's keep going! This is a long game. :)

Nielk March 8, 2013 at 7:26 am

Orphan and injured birds need rescue, that's true
But, that would be okay if all we had was the flu

Please vote for National ME/FM Action every day
Together we can soar higher than the birds of prey

Voting to raise charity money for us is satisfying and fun
We need your vote for a chance to win – thanks a ton!

Sasha March 8, 2013 at 3:27 pm

Interesting – we seem to be holding at 500 or so behind 3rd place but we've pulled further ahead of fifth place.

Let's overtake those birds this weekend!

400 little votes to catch the birds. They don't seem to be pulling ahead, but they are maintaining their distance. Let's hope they soon get distracted by nestbuilding, and forget to vote for a day

snowathlete March 8, 2013 at 6:57 pm

is it really bad to hope they get mild (non life threatening) bird-flu and are out of action for a couple of weeks?

We're holding at a steady 500 or so votes behind third place which means they're not building their support – we can overtake them if we build ours just a bit! 19 more days to go, we just need 25 more daily voters, or us to be more persistent as their support falls off…

442 votes behind 3rd right now. Canadians have likely been voting a lot the last few hours. I am assuming that this contests ends at midnight Canadian time (what time zone?), so it is the day vote tally at their midnight that is most relevant.

Thats fantastic. We have done really well to claw back third place…pecking away at their lead…flying back into third… We should push even harder now because I imagine that it will trigger a response from the birds.

Great, that's very important – as Canada wakes up we tend to have slipped back but I think we maybe got a ton of new voters so today will be very interesting.

Now is the time to step on the pedal and give it a strong push!

This is typically their strongest point in the day.

The birds must be very angry birds about now. The Bounty website seems to be broken, and this is their biggest vote time. Hopefully they forget to come back today to see when it gets fixed

The site is back, but what on earth has happened?

Is it a mistake? Perhaps their database died and they restored to an old version? Or did they adjust everyone to remove dodgy looking votes? I can't believe we would have had so many dodgy votes though?!
