    I think it is stupid that not everybody gets a car or a van or what they need as we do here. Honestly I hate my Mercedes Vito with the lift, but at least I did not pay for it. I would have prefered a smaller van but no choice without paying it myself. And I don't have 400 000 dollars.

    +32 votes here

    got all my friends voting, + the 935 code for extra points.

    Also, check out proxy sites, can vote again from the same computer, it lets you vote again straight away, with the same email, but i guess they might pick up on that.

    Times running out, but you can vote once every 24 hours from each IP address you use. Remember that you can get cast five votes by entering promo code 935. The promo code can only be used once from each IP address, but you can still cast one vote every day for the remainder of the contest.

    Please vote now. THANKS!

    Thank you so much to those of you who have been supporting me! I'm truly touched. <3

    Tomorrow is the last day to vote. I'm almost positive that I am in the top 10%. Now we just have to wait until the 21st which is when they announce the 3 winners! I'm so excited!

    I plan on writing a letter to the judges telling them why I think they should give one of the vans to me. I would love to include letters from others stating why you think I should win. If you so desire to write such a letter, please send it to wheelsforshannon@mail.com. Please note, that is indeed mail.com, not gmail.com!

    I plan on sending the letter(s) early Tuesday morn, so please email me by midnight Monday.

    My heartfelt thanks to all of you who have supported me! You are wonderful, wonderful, people and it literally brings tears to my eyes when I think about your generosity. Love to all of you!

    Good luck!

    Shannon, I was sorry to learn that you hadn't won. You gave it a tremendous effort!

    When you posted your idea of wearing a T-shirt with the number of votes, I thought of an idea that now seems even more appropriate. The idea was to put the number of people who badly wanted an accessible vehicle, but hadn't won the contest.

    I'm still befuddled how other nations can provide better medical and DME support to their citizens. Makes you wonder what we mean when we claim that the United States of America is the greatest country on Earth? Maybe for those who can buy whatever they need, but certainly not for folks who struggle to get by. We can do better.

    I hope that your disappointment is somewhat softened by knowing that so many people supported you in this effort.
