Save the Children to join Giving Nation in support of G-week

Giving Nation has enlisted Save the Children to support its second annual week of promoting giving.

G-week, which takes place from 26 June to 2 July, is aimed at 11-16-year-olds and includes the chance to win cash prizes and a trip to India to visit a charitable project. To take part, schools must compose a log of their charitable activities and a video diary.

Save the Children, which was the first large charity to respond to Giving Nation's call for support, is organising the programme in India for the winning school. Last year's G-week involved 400 schools, with 10,000 children receiving certificates for their activities.

Giving Nation is partly supported by the Home Office and the Department of Education. It hopes that Chancellor Gordon Brown will oversee the awards ceremony in July.

Giving Nation has moved into the offices of the Citizenship Foundation this week, before its parent organisation the Giving Campaign winds up next month.
