Less than 4 days left for the Change.org vote (ends on Friday, March 12). We need to finish in the top 10. Vote today (and every day through Friday, March 12 at 5 est) — and ask family and friends to do the same! You can vote every 24 hours, you may need to clear cookies/history to vote each day.
About the vote:
Ideas for Change in America is a crowd-sourcing competition that empowers citizens to identify and build momentum around a diverse range of ideas for addressing the challenges our country faces.
From January – February 2010, more than 2,500 ideas were submitted and voted on by 100,000 people across the country. The top three rated ideas from each issue category, listed below, qualified for the final round.
Final round voting begins on March 1 and ends on March 12. The 10 most popular ideas will be presented to relevant members of the Obama Administration, and Change.org will subsequently mobilize its full community to support a series of grassroots campaigns to help turn each idea into reality.
[Why a registry of registries? It is impossible to study any disease without a registry. These registries cost each of us with rare conditions hundreds of thousands of dollars. Most rare conditions can’t afford one. Having these registries make rare disease infinately easier to study, and have the population ready when the time to test a drug comes! This is an essntial step! (by Sharon Terry of Genetic Alliance)]
