Vote for the Lyme Disease Awareness Car

The Lyme Disease Awareness Race Car moved into 1st place for the most number of votes on Sunday evening! Our car is also now featured on the “Most Votes” page for everyone to see! BUT we still need to keep the voting up.

Number of votes currently- 9290 (voting open 4 more days)

2nd place car, number of votes- 6,891 (voting closed)

Number of times someone clicked on the Lyme Disease Awareness Race Car to get a close up view- 9,600 (+)

Approximate number of visitors to the website where our car is located (since we entered the contest)- 3,000,000 (Yes! 3 MILLION)

In 10 days over 1,500 people visited the website dedicated to Dr. Jones and the children with Lyme, due to the Lyme Disease Awareness Race Car efforts. That is wonderful!

IT IS IMPORTANT to keep voting each day!

To vote, click here-

Currently there are over 32,000 cars entered in the race. The dead line to enter a new car will have passed by the time you get this notice (midnight Sunday, March 20, 2011).

We currently have 4 more days left to vote on our race car (15 days allotted originally). We need to try to bring up the number of votes as high as possible. It is important to keep voting each day because there are a number of cars with 1- 15 days left to get votes. Some of the race cars are closing on us quickly and could pass us once our voting period ends.

(Thank you to Phyllis for sharing this info so I could pass it on.)

May is Lyme Disease awareness month

May is Lyme Disease awareness month in many states. For the month of May the goal is to get awareness out in any way you can. Trish Mcleary started this two years ago with her, “Ribbons Across America” project.

Basically, we want to paint your town Lyme green. This project is nice because people suffering from Lyme that are really sick and stay home can participate by decorating their yard.

Here’s some ideas fro May:

  • Tie Lyme green ribbons all over your yard. You can write down Lyme websites on these ribbons, or sayings like, “Denying Lyme is a Cryme!”
  • Get your town’s permission to tie up these ribbons on phone poles.
  • Drop off LDA brochures for convenient stares, gas stations, schools to hand out.
  • Tack up LDA or ILADS brochures on any local bulletin boards.
  • Order signs for your yard saying things like Pass our Lyme Bills HR1179 so that Lyme Doctors don’t get in trouble for treating us!
  • Go to local places and hand out Lyme fliers and green ribbons.
  • Wear your Lyme green Lyme t-shirts!
  • Contact newspapers, TV stations, and any other media
