We started out with seven CFS non-profits in the running for $175,000 in the Chase Community Giving Contest. We knew the contest was going to get really volatile in the last couple of days and it has with four organizations dropping like rocks.
With only 22 hours left in the contest only three organization appear assured of taking home any money; the IACFS (AACFS), the CFSKnowledge Center and Mass CFIDS.
Rocky Mountain and Wisconsin have dropped precipitously and are now hanging on the skin of the teeth at positions 89 and 99. Even small drops now will kick them out. The fine New Jersey CFS Association which has done so much over the years is now off the leaderboard as is the exciting Foundation devoted to studying what may be a key culprit in CFS - enteroviruses.
We can turn this around. A similar situation happened last year with PANDORA and we managed to turn it around and get them in the winnings. Pandora then funded a researcher who ultimately was able to get millions of dollars in NIH grants.
This is worth taking your time to do.
We have 22 hours to do get these non-profits some money. If you haven't already, please vote and ask for your friends to vote for the following organizations at the following links.
