Brainstorm the best way you can help your cause or charity.

Examples of what you can do include turning your dance concert into a fundraiser for a local charity or visiting your local retirement village and putting on a concert for the residents. Choose a date and time for your giving project.

4. Put your project into action:

Run your project. Take plenty of photographs and / or a video. Gather reflections on what has been learnt and what you might do differently next time.
