Well, I tried last year with Cancer Research UK, and with no nagging came second. Better luck this year:

Should I help people who, like me, are nearing the end of their self indulgent lives?

Should I help people who are just starting their lives?

No contest I'm afraid.

Cheers
Bill

Unfortunately the corollary of applying the principle of return on investment too strongly would mean mandatory euthanasia on retirement

Now if there were a charity that had a demonstrable impact on the quality of parenting for those who most needed it, THAT would get my vote

good one, Dave

Let's keep this thread at the top, and ensure everybody has their chance to vote.

I've just gone for the Cancer Research. I'm on the books of the Institute of Cancer Research. In my case, this institute is trying to research the prostate gene.

According to Dave's graph, male deaths from prostate cancer are in third place!

My only concern is this is a poll to have a poll!

I seem to recall this technique went wildry awry wrt the Android campsite app. People thought they had already voted but nuke zeroed the counter and started again The second time around never amassed the votes the first poll had!

UncleNorm, it's the X-axis scale in deaths per annum in the UK alone I find saddening.

I've gone for Breast Cancer Care because I have had an almost obsessive interest in breasts since I was about 8 when I saw my first real one, that I remember. What a day that was. I knew then there was a God.
