Introduction

Stage 3 - Evaluation of Activity By completing my activity I achieved my aim of raising as much money as possible for the Asian earthquake appeal. Overall I raised �83.40 which will be very helpful for those working on re-supplying and rebuilding the affected areas. I also got to experience how Muslims feel when they fast all day, and on a very small scale, how those who have to starve everyday feel. This has helped me to understand the suffering that some people in the world have to endure every single day. While planning my activity I learnt that even a small charity raising event takes up a large amount of time, and many problems can be encountered. Problems I had included; finding a time and place it was suitable to fast, convincing people to sponsor me and finding an acceptable method of actually donating the money. I struggled to secure sponsors because people are often being asked for money which leads to compassion fatigue when people are tired of giving money away to charity, even though it's for a good cause if they gave money away every time they were asked then they would end up giving away a large part of their income. ...read more.

also have raised awareness in my local community about the charity and it's work which could in turn have led to more donations. To do this I could have put up posters, handed out leaflets either in the streets or by knocking on local residents doors. The information handed out could include basic background information about the Red Cross, previous work they have carried out, information about the Asian Earthquake disaster, how the Red Cross has dealt with the disaster and of course information on how to contact and donate to the Red Cross. Because there were just two people (Me and Louis) in my group for my citizenship coursework we both had to take responsibility for the whole project as we decided it would be better to work as a team throughout, rather than delegate roles. We decided this because although working on separate parts of the activity would be less time consuming, we wanted to make sure the activity was planned and carried out the best it could be. I think that one of the best contributions I made to the activity was on the day itself, I handled the fast a lot better than Louis, and helped him to make ...read more.

Conclusion

I believe this because of the recent survey I carried out which found that the majority of people would be interested in donating to the Asian Earthquake appeal, but just 17% have actually donated to the British Red Cross, showing that donating money simply isn't easy enough for people and needs to be improved. Overall I would say that my citizenship activity is a good citizenship activity. My activity has increased mine, and others', awareness of the global situation. By researching into the situation over in Asia this has also increased my awareness of my responsibilities to the others that I share the planet with no matter how far away they are I have a responsibility to give to those less fortunate than myself, whether it be in a time of need or simply to help improve their life. I have also increased my awareness of the complex work that a global charity such as the Red Cross do. Because I have now learnt about global charity work I think I would definitely be more likely to donate again in the future in order to help global charities. I think that the best thing about my citizenship activity is that I was able to help those in need on the other side of the world, just by acting locally. Jonny Sherwood 11GRL ...read more.
