As promised.. Christmas 2005 Charity Donation Poll
Please vote if you have a preference. I'm doing this, as I've said before, partly because it's easy, partly because I resent the over-commercialisation of the season and partly because while I think about most of you lot regularly I don't always think of other people - so this is a time to do that.

Don't feel pressured, don't think I don't love you all because I'm not contributing to Hallmark's annual profits. I care about my friends though I know I don't always show it..

Oh, and I'm not doing this out of some sense of guilt or to try and impress you. Surely most of you know me well enough to understand I like to do that in other ways.

good for you
whatever charity you choose will be very grateful for the help
this is also what i do each year instead of buying cards and gifts

I'll probably give something to all of them. Just vary the amounts a little based on the indicative poll - so it reflects a combination of "my choice" and "my friends' preferences".

I did consider one - but you could have always "not voted"?

R says Friends of the Earth suits him too.

Which one do you want donations to in lieu of pressie? Or do you want pressie? :)

If you have already chosen a pressie then I would not like to appear ungrateful. If you are applying just-in-time principles then please give to charity :-)

Well, we had you down for a charity donation so haven't bought anything especial, but still don't know which charity you'd like!

Médecins Sans Frontières please :-)

argh! too much choice!

i already give to amnesty, so i guess i'll let you chose one of the others.

in fact, i've now selected one to vote for.

not that i dont feel any of the others arent also deserving, but i guess i feel that if christmas is a time to help fellow *humans* all over the world, the most impactful one would be one that would be humanitarian and international.
