Givewell vs. The Life You Can Save

This is a question post.

In an earlier discussion I learned that it is slightly more effective to donate to just one charity rather than many because of the processing cost.  I've narrowed it down to Givewell and The Life You Can Save.   They are both great groups.  If you had to pick one, which would you pick, and why?

No replies to my question.  Maybe because the two groups are so similar.  I may just split my donations between the two groups and forget about the small amount of money lost to the extra expense of processing two donations rather than one.  Or I might just pick one at random.
