Help MS Society win funds

The latest issue of MS Matters asks readers to go online and vote for their favourite charity in a collaboration between the People’s Postcode Trust and the Daily Mirror. The most popular charity will win £50,000, four runners-up will each win £10,000. The website is www.votethatcounts.org and voting closes on 21 October.

I have cast my vote. I hope to see MS in the top five at least.

I had already voted but have cast another one :slight_smile:

PDSA’s winning, by a country mile. I do care about animals, but really, where are people’s priorities? They’d rather help pets than children, or adults living with severe illness. Says it all, really. If it’s cute and furry, it matters more than someone facing life-limiting or life-changing circumstances.

Tina I was just about to post exactly the same. Animal charities are the richest there are. I don’t get it! I’ve just managed to vote again - is there a limit? I could sit and do it all day - but probably still wouldn’t match pdsa :frowning:

Just voted, thanks for the info. After I cast my vote it showed the standings, PDSA on 43% of the vote, Childline 10%. What’s up with people?

From the voting terms and conditions

  • Only one vote per person will be counted. However a further two votes are available on behalf of the voter if s/he post on his/her Twitter or Facebook page via the votethatcounts.org website.

Done.

Thanks for bringing to our attention Bren.

Anyone who has signed the WOW petition, have you also voted for MS Society funds? We can’t let our four-legged friends win.
