Charity pyramid scheme

Motto: Hijacking an evil idea for a good cause

Invented by yvesilena (and modified slightly by me)

Here's how to join:

1) At the bottom of this message you should see a list of up to six charities. Send a small donation to each of them (even £1 is good - if you can afford more, all the better!). If there's a charity you don't want to donate to, for whatever reason, feel free to donate to one you prefer instead, but please leave the original in the list.
2) If there are six in the list, knock the top one off.
3) Add details of your favourite charity to the bottom of the list (including a link to a page for online donations, if there is one)
4) Post this where other people can see it, or e-mail it to people you know.

1 ) World Wildlife Fund Donate at: https://secure.wwf.org.uk/donate/index.asp
2) Dr Hadwen Trust for Humane Research. Donate at: http://www.crueltyfreeshop.com/UK/shop/system/index.html (this is their online shop, from which all profits go to the charity, and you can also just donate money - though there's a minimum donation of £5 this way - you can of course donate less than that by phone or post).

Emotional blackmail edit. No-one commented when I made a similar request on adventcalendar and if no-one comments that they've donated (to that or this) this time I shall feel all sad and ignored (albeit not very much, and not for very long)
