Last year, PANDORA received $20,000 in this contest based on the number of votes cast for them. This year the contest is focusing on nonprofits with operating expenses between $1 million and $10 million. This year, let’s see if we can get some funding for charities now in the running that help us – such as the Whittemore Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Illness, and the CFIDS Association of America.
Voting for Round One ends May 4. In Round One, each of the top 100 will win $25,000. In Round Two, potential donations go up to $500,000.
Each person can cast 10 votes (one per charity) in Round One and 5 votes Round 2. You can live anywhere in the world, but you must have a Facebook account to vote. Tell your family & friends to vote too; it’s free money in recognition of priceless services rendered to the chronic illness community.
