Just a few votes - yours? can bring several organizations representing the ME/CFS & FM community back into the top 100 (to win a precious infusion of $25,000) and keep others from slipping out at the last. Voting ends in a few minutes at a minute before noon (11:59) Eastern Time (8:59 AM Pacific time).
Tom Kindlon reported the following status this morning via Co-Cure on organizations still in the 100 or close enough to make it with just a few votes.

EASY THREE-STEP VOTING INSTRUCTIONS
FIRST, you must be a registered FaceBook user, because you will be required to “Like” Chase Community Giving before you can cast votes. (Join at www.facebook.com. It’s easy.) This process will create a "Facebook page" for you, which you can delete after the contest if you want.
SECOND you go to the Chase Giving site (http://apps.facebook.com/chasecommunitygiving/) where you sign into your Facebook page, and click on the "Like" button at the top of the page to get started.
THIRD, find the organizations you want to vote for (there is a page for each, and links to the ones with a chance of winning are provided above). Again, you can vote once for each of up to 10 organizations.
You can enlist family, friends, and organizations, anywhere, if they're on Facebook, to vote for your favorite organization(s) as well. Winning organizations are those that muster the most supporters.
Helping these deserving organizations will ultimately help us all.
