Choose our Charity of the Year

The NewsStand will support a charity this year. And you can choose which one.

Here in NationStates we're an international community. So all our candidate charities have international focus. There are twelve candidates, serving a wide range of purposes. Please vote for the cause you'd like to support.

Each charity will receive a small lump sum in proportion with their share of the vote. In addition, the charity with most votes will receive a regular monthly payment for a year. In the event of a tie, the winner will be chosen randomly.
