Try MAC-UK, it's a mental health charity based in Camden, which helps deprived young people.

That's a lovely idea.
It is super easy to text donate to charity if they have a justgiving page.
My charity justgiving pages are for Action for ME, and then I have ASBAH and Diabetes UK, but all you need is the individual's unique code and then you can donate directly from your sim's phone credit.
If you want some help finding out more then if you PM me as I can give you some pointers if you have a specific charity in mind.
What a lovely thing you are doing
no she just has a justgiving to donate and you can use text-ask her?

just donated £5. thanks simplex. will donate to some more if anyone knows any
I know this is a good way to 'use' your credit, but why dont you stop topping up until you have used it all, you may not need to top up for a while then. Not that I don't want you to give it to charity.

because i easily use more than £15 worth in texts and internet each month so would be silly not to top up

[i cant pretend to know what you're on about lol anything that helps!



Haha, sorry. I was just wondering if you wanted me to set up a justgiving page for Alder Hey in my justgiving account until you have the time to set up your own one?
Or if it would help and you would like, I could set up an account for you, just PM me your email addy and I'll set it all up for you and also set up the text donation stuff as well. You can then change the password etc to whatever you want, I'd just set it up and then it's all yours.
My friends little boy is suffering from neuroblastoma and were trying to raise money to get the treatment he needs in America this is the link to his page.
Text THOM97 to 70070 any about between 1-10 pounds its a good cause, he has a face book page too it's,Thomas Cammck Appeal thanks

Plumberman's page is all set up now, I'll see if I can PM you the details
EDIT: I PM'd some details but am not 100% sure I have the text code right, so Plumberman can you just confirm it please? If you send me the code as well I'll chase up that mystery donation (well, 2 actually) which I sent to the page but were never received/donated.
