What's new: Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

The RSPB will ramp up its awareness and membership though a new website, a mobile internet site and a digital prize draw, to be managed by agency Harvest Digital.

Adults can enter an online prize draw to win one of 10 Viking AV-50 mini- telescope kits; children have a chance to win a set of 10 cuddly toys and children's binoculars. Visitors over 18 can enter the prize draw by texting 84477, and can also download ringtones featuring birdsong and wallpaper for their mobile phones. Online advertising will target those interested in wildlife. Adult entrants are sent a copy of Birds In Our Countryside, membership information and details of how to join the organisation.

The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association will start a direct marketing push this month to ask its supporters for extra donations. The campaign will introduce supporters to a married couple, Sue and Geraint Jones, who both lost their sight in their teens.

Justgiving, the charity fundraising service, has launched a fundraising website that allows smokers to donate sponsorship money received for giving up smoking to charities of their choice.

The Prince's Trust will launch its biggest sports campaign to date, Sport United, on 6 September. Supporters will raise funds through the Capgemini Wild UK Challenge - a three-day, coast-to-coast running, cycling and kayaking competition - and other events.

The Stroke Association will launch a multimedia fundraising and awareness campaign on 14 July. It will raise awareness of the message that a stroke is a brain attack that can change lives.
