A website that allows users to donate small amounts of money to charity will be launched on 14 December.
The site, called Ploink!, allows people to donate by dragging coins into piggy banks online. Users can give between 1p and £2 each time. Once they have filled their piggy banks, they can empty them by donating the contents to charity. The website will charge 10p each time a piggy bank is emptied.
Arsenal footballers Cesc Fabregas, Theo Walcott, Andrey Arshavin and Bacary Sagna have made a video in which they dress as furry animals to support the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity. In the film, the players don costumes to collect money on the street while manager Arsene Wenger gets frustrated that they have not turned up for training. It promotes the team's Be a Gooner. Be a Giver campaign.
Parenting website Mothers of Innovation will donate all of the profits from the sale of its new Toddler Speak Dictionary to baby charity Bliss. The booklets cost £1.99 and Mothers of Innovation expects to donate about £1 per booklet to the charity, which supports premature and sick babies.
