Story

Hi! This is where you can donate to ActionAid, and nominate songs to take part in

The People's Pop Charity Crusher

The what? Let me explain.

I've been running pop music polls on Twitter for 3 years now, since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. People nominate tracks, I collate them and set up brackets, and we all have lots of fun voting and chatting about music.

One of the first polls we did was a charity poll, where people who donated could nominate ANY SONG THEY LIKE to go in.

To celebrate the third birthday of the polls, my own 50th birthday, and the move to a new site, we're doing it again.

I've set up two fundraisers - this one and one for refugee charity the Ruth Hayman Trust. You can donate to either or both. Each one you donate to lets you pick TWO songs.

If you want to pick songs, please

1) Donate

2) LEAVE A COMMENT NAMING YOUR SONGS

That's all!

(Well, almost all. In the vast universe of pop there are 40 or so songs that have already won polls of ours so we'll leave them out. You can see that list and other guidelines here.)

If you forgot to nominate, need to clarify something, or have any other questions either DM @peoples_pop on Twitter or email peoplespopcentral@gmail.com

The poll will start around May 1st. Nominations will close before that but I'll keep the fundraiser up throughout.

Here's the list of EVERYTHING NOMINATED SO FAR

Good luck!

I was particularly attracted to ActionAid because of their emphasis on work to help women and girls but also the large number of projects they undertake working with refugees and the displaced.
