It’s poll results times again – hurrah! Last month we kicked off a barely disguised popularity contest by asking who’s your favourite UK-based diabetes charity.
Despite the inexplicable unpopularity of Diabetes UK’s recent rebrand (“I’ll never support you again, you bastards, unless you reinstate the pink hummingbird!”) they came out top by some way, with 35% of the total vote. Here at Shoot Up we like DUK, but don’t really know why. Insightful, we ain’t.
The other charity that you’ve actually heard of – the JDRF – was your second favourite with 22% of the vote. Insulin Dependent Diabetes Trust came in with 4% and Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation and Seek Diabetes Awareness scored no votes at all.
The hilarious irony of a charity called Seek Diabetes Awareness not getting any votes is clearly not lost on us.
However, a good proportion of you voted to screw all charities and squander your cash on booze and wild women / men instead. This is certainly something Shoot Up would advocate and, in fact, strongly encourages. So there.
This month we ask for your food-related nemeses – does pizza send your blood glucose into the heavens; does Chinese takeaway lead to days of misery or do you just eat salad all the time? Vote over in the right hand column over there >>
Those results in full:
- Diabetes UK 35%
- I’d rather spend my money on booze & wild women / men 33%
- Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation 22%
- Charity begins at home 7%
- Insulin Dependent Diabetes Trust 4%
- Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation 0%
- Seek Diabetes Awareness 0%
