Please vote for the Samaritans [voting over 2012, but...]
The Samaritans - a UK based, non-religous charity which supports people in crisis, particularly those feeling despair or suicidal feelings - has been nominated as one of five charities which could benefit from fundraising at Scottish Premier League Football matches in early December. This is a great opportunity - not just to raise funds for the Scottish based branches, but also to raise awareness of what we do with a group which, in Scotland, have the highest suicide rate - young men aged between 25 - 50.
Please help us raise funds and bring awareness of what we do to a group which is at risk, but is often unaware of that by voting for us here
(and here's more about who we are and what we do http://www.samaritans.org )

Your vote for Samaritans Scotland has been successfully registered. Good luck; Samaritans is a most worthy organisation, though I must disclose I have been involved in suicide prevention for over 40 years now, so I may be a bit biased, as I am toward certain products of the Scottish islands of Islay and Jura.
Voting closes on Sunday 28th October at 23:59 with the winning charity being revealed on Monday 12th November.
