Anyone like to put names forward for a charity that my daughter school can do a fundraiser for?

My daughter (14) and her best friend are holding a sweet sale and are selling fizzy drinks at school in a few weeks but they haven't come up with a good charity they'd like to support yet, 50% of all of the profits will go to the charity and 50% will go towards buying supplies as they will be doing this once a month until the end of Y11.
They want to support a different charity each month. We will be putting names of charities in a hat and picking them out each month.

Also MSF.

MPS society. It's a rare disease so often doesn't get a lot of traction, but they really do amazing work for families touched by this awful, life limiting disease. I have a close friend whose dear boy suffers from it and the work they do in invaluable.

JDRF - junior diabetes. Great charity for young people to support.

Home Start - offers support for families through home visiting volunteers

Action Duchenne. My son's friend was diagnosed aged 3, it's a rare but devastating condition. He will likely need a wheelchair before he's 12 and Duchenne boys rarely live past 20. The charity do amazing things.
Well done your DD!

Was going to suggest Women's Aid as it is talked about on MN all the time and is a very worthy cause

We also do our best to give supporters a really direct thank you and feedback - this is often by video or direct from our staff in Malawi

Dyspraxia Foundation, they're terribly underfunded at the moment and in danger of not being able to continue.

someday tesco stores often have cake sales and raffles of cakes and things to raise money for diabetes UK! I did think it a bit odd.

Something like Mind? Or a mental health charity that focuses on young people.

Clic sargent ( I feel like I spelt that wrong) they have been a great support to a friend who's ds has cancer

A local hospice, have a Google to find your local one. Children's hospice would be particularly appropriate. They do fantastic things and you'd be supporting your local community.
