So, it seems to me like the CCF made a bad, stupid decision, and have lost out. Fair enough.

On a brighter note, see my sig for another charity that would be very happy and proud to take your money, and which would be directly helping children in poor countries by protecting them from a disease with an annual mortality of 0.9 million people (most of them children) and a caseload of 247 million cases at the last estimate (http://www.rbm.who.int/wmr2005/html/1-2.htm), with hefty consequences for child health, growth, and education.
