The NewsStand,

I want to say how generous you are for making an effort to donate to charities, especially the plan to make regular monthly donations through the year.

I only noticed the update and the poll to decide which charity just now, with 6 hours to ago, even though you gave everybody 10 days notice. Most of this forum slept through your announcement unfortunately, even if the post was an understatement.

For those who missed it: https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=1152179 and it also links to a poll where you can help The NewsStand decide which charity to donate.

All the best with the plan.

Thanks for your kind comments.

I live in the UK, and for many years charities have been encouraging people to make monthly donations. It's easy to go online and set up a Direct Debit payment from your bank account. And ticking a box allows the charity to reclaim tax from the government on top of your donation, so boosting it by about 25%. And that's all the effort it takes.

I'm just one of millions of people that do this. I thought this poll would be a good way to boost awareness of the charities, encourage altruism, and also see which way people voted.

Donating money is easy if you have a regular disposable income. Far more inspiring is people giving up their time for causes. I've had quite a few players share with me about the work they've done. Like the person who helps out at the hospital every week. Or the player who wrapped up Christmas presents for children whose parents were in jail.

The poll results were really interesting to see. It quickly became a race between the World Wildlife Fund (the eventual winner) and Medecins Sans Frontieres. I'm glad that every charity got a vote though - it shows that all the causes were valued.

Thanks for taking the time to add your vote. And don't worry folks, we'll be back on topic with the latest NS news soon!
