2. Plan and then action your project:

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.

Invite the Governor and Mrs. McCusker, the Minister for Education, your local MP, Mr. Akram Azimi (Young Australian of the Year) or Kids Who Give WA Committee Members to come and see your project in action.

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.
