  1. texto sobre organizaciones de caridad
    Raising funds is the biggest challenge faced by most charities.

    Even though lots of volunteers give their time for free, and people donate unwanted goods, a charity still has enormous costs. Charities can also raise money by applying for grants from different organisations, including the government.

    Grants are usually for specific projects, such as buying a new van for the charity.

    In 1927, the BBC launched a special appeal to raise money for children's charities.

    This appeal was made on the radio on Christmas Day and lasted for five minutes.

    There was a phenomenal response; people donated money from all over Britain.

    The first televised appeal was in 1955 and was presented by children's TV characters.

    25 years later, the appeal appeared in a new format, a telethon. This meant that instead of an advertisement asking for money, there was a whole evening of entertainment with celebrities talking about the causes.

    People could donate during the programme and the presenters could say how much was being raised every few minutes.

    This telethon captured people's imagination and the appeal raised more than a million pounds.

    The charity was named Children in Need.In 1985, Children in Need introduced a mascot: Pudsey Bear. He wears a spotty bandage over one eye and has inspired both children and adults.

    • For example, Martha, a pupil at Wescombe Secondary School, said, "I saw the appeal on TV and thought, "I wish I could help". So we organised a spotty dress day at school.
    • Instead of wearing uniform, everyone paid to wear spotty clothes, like Pudsey, and we raised £200".

    • The firemen from Boxforth fire station run a sponsored marathon every year and have encouraged other volunteers to take part. The fire chief said, "We've managed to raise more funds every year.
    • If only we could reach our target of £5,000, then one of our local businesses has promised to contribute the same amount as well".

    Children in Need gives grants to UK projects which help disadvantaged children. These causes include disabled children or children who have suffered from domestic violence. Children in Need believes that every child in the UK should have a safe, happy and secure childhood. They shouldn't be hungry or live in fear and should have adequate shelter and equal opportunities.
