Introduction

Write a letter to your house captain persuading them that they should chose your choice of charity to support in the upcoming charity week Dear House Captain, For the up coming house event I believe that I have found a very worthwhile charity that would really benefit from the money we raise. The charity is called Shelter and it helps anyone with housing problems and people who are homeless. Despite our lavish lifestyles in Britain, there are still thousands of homeless people.

This is why we should give the money we raise to Shelter. It will make all the difference to these peoples life and for some people it will be the best Christmas present they will ever receive.
