Hello, hello. We've got a brand new topic for your delectation and delight.

We're frequently blown away by the ingenuity and generosity of Mumsnetters when it comes to helping each other out; from challenging each other to fundraising runs, to prodding others to give blood/sign the bone-marrow donation register, to knitting/crocheting for MN's very own Woolly Hugs.

So we thought a new topic where you can talk about volunteering/fundraising/giving for charity, share useful info and tips, and maybe even join forces to do something extra special for causes you feel passionate about, would be in order.

We also wanted to let you know about www.givemore.org.uk, which is all about encouraging people across the UK to pledge to give more time, money and energy to the charity or cause they care about.

With Give More we've put together some simple ideas on how you might "give more" were you of a mind to; do take a look and, if you can, make a pledge of your own.

Hello brew

If we wanted to do a Woolly Hugs fundraiser for a charity being organised by a lovely Mumsnetter, is this a place we can promote it? Not sure what the accepted thing is?

Hello everyone

Just wanted to let you know that the team over at Give More have just launched their Give More Challenge week, which invites you to take this quiz to see just how much you know about local issues and giving your community. Give it a try and test your local knowledge.

A quick update on Give More - the movement has to date secured over 33,000 pledges from people across the UK about giving more to charities and good causes they care about. A great result!

Thanks
MNHQ
