PF will be donating $25 to the charity of the communities choosing. Vote now! Poll ends May 30th!
First vote! Animals.
I think the Humane Society won last time too lol
No, I think Parkinson's won last time. This time Humane society should win. Several of us lost beloved pets this month and would appreciate a donation to the animal shelters.
May I also suggest "Big Cat Rescue" which rescues abused tiger, lion and several other big cats from various locations of USA and give them a final home.
I'll add it to the next donation poll, thanks!
I love my dog, and before we found and adopted him he had been at the local ASPCA shelter from Mid-may until the end of September. He rarely leaves my side. I think animal shelters need the help because people are abandoning pets in poor economic times.
My wife and I donate to the local shelter (where we got Duke) and when she finds deals on pet-food (often bags that are torn in shipping/handling), she will snap them up and we'll donate those, too. Plus, shelters need cleaning supplies, disinfectants, etc. There is a store in the county seat that often offers bulk prices on remaindered supplies like that. Those go to the shelter, too.
They're all great charities it's hard to choose! Whoever wins I'll donate $10 to second place.
Though I love science, life is more important. I'd go for Animal Humane Society.
Hope science gets the second place!!
I vote for oxfam :)
I've never heard of the last 3.
I love Lucifer T. Cat more than almost anyone or anything that I know, and seriously would kill anybody who hurt her, but I have to put innocent humans ahead of innocent animals. For that reason, I voted for Parkinson's. I'm in no position to contribute to any charity (I'm on AISH, so I'm the recipient of charity), but my first choice is STARS. That is totally irrelevant to anyone who doesn't live in my area. (It stands for Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society, and is the flying ambulance that so many of us in rural areas owe our lives to.) It costs a couple of thousand bucks per hour to keep one of those choppers in the air, but they save hundreds of people every year.
Next to that, my favourite would be Unicef. Kids don't even carry the little boxes around on Hallowe'en any more, so I don't know where their funding comes from.
And I'll donate $10 to the third place!!
That a way MM!! :)
I voted for Carnegie only because the Protect Jimmy Snyder Fund was not listed. Surely this oversight will be corrected next year. PM me if you want to know where to send money, cash only please, no checks or credit cards.
One more day to vote!
Animal Humane Society has won. Sending the money now. Thanks all!!!
Wonderful, thanks Greg!
Just made the $10 donation to Carnegie Institution for Science great idea to do this Greg!
I chose Animals Humane Society but I wish the Animal Liberation Front were there :rofl:
My wife and I donated a bag of Iams dog food to the local ASPCA shelter this weekend. If she could get a deal on detergents, cleaning products, or disinfectants, those would have been on the list, too. Those have to wait for affordability, but we will always pay for premium-grade dog food and donate it. We have a couple of "clearance" stores in the area, and when they feature cleaning supplies/disinfectants at a discount, the shelter is going to get help from us.
Awesome idea. Kudos to PF for this! This site is awesome. :)
Greg, why is the poll still open?
