That's the unfortunate thing with the campaign - it was something someone came up with after the single had come out, so I imagine a lot of the interested people had already bought it.
Olivier's right, though, the charts only cover a one week period - in this case, it started at 1 minute past midnight on the 15th and will end at midnight (UK time) on Saturday.
I'll also have to clarify whether sales via Viral's website count at all - I'd assumed that their sales wouldn't be reported back to the Official Chart Company, but Tom's been assuring people that sales on the site do count. It certainly only applies to sales at UK retailers.
According to this article from the Official Chart Company, the Children of Ireland single doesn't seem to be in the running...we'd better all go out and buy as many copies as we can to ward off Simon Cowell and his cronies
