Introduction

Citizenship Coursework Stage 1 - Plan For my Citizenship coursework I will be raising money for the Asian earthquake appeal by doing a sponsored fast. I aim to raise as much money as possible for the Asian earthquake appeal. I will be working along side a friend of mine; Louis Baxter. By working with Louis I feel the fast will be easier, as I will have someone to share the difficulties of the fast with, and we will be able to help each other through it. I know Louis from my form at school, this makes it easy for us to converse and organise the activity. The only difficulty that working with Louis poses, is that being without food for a day may make us both very stressed, which could lead to us arguing and becoming annoyed with each other. During the planning stage we discussed various different activities that we could do. One such activity was to put on an after school football training session for primary school children in order to give them an enjoyable after school club as this was something that both me and Louis enjoyed while we were at primary school. We decided against this though, as we felt that we could do something that is focused on helping those that need it most. ...read more.

The money we donate will help the British Red Cross in their efforts to help the affected countries. When the Asian earthquake first hit, the British Red Cross, Christian Aid, Unicef and Oxfam were among the first to respond, supplying immediate, emergency aid to all the affected countries. The initial effort consisted of trying to rescue as many of the injured as possible by moving away any rubble or remains of buildings that had trapped people. These charities also supplied emergency medical supplies and doctors to try and save as many lives as possible in the early stages. The epicentre of the earthquake was close to Muzaffarabad, the capital of Kashmir. Over 70 percent of Muzaffarabad was devastated by the earthquake. Mud slides meant that the area was cut off, while electricity and communication lines were severely disrupted. This made the initial relief effort even more difficult as before the various relief workers could begin to help those who were injured, they had to get into the city by fighting through huge mud slides. Unicef have estimated that over 50 per cent of those dead are children, with some people even claiming that a whole generation has been wiped out. The relief attempt is being co-ordinated by the Red Crescent (Equivalent of the British Red Cross) societies in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India as they were closest to the disaster and therefore have the most man power. ...read more.

Conclusion

From Tuesday the 11th of October to Tuesday the 25th of October we will be concentrating on securing sponsorship for the activity. We plan to secure sponsorship from 3 different places; family, neighbours and school. The sponsorship information will be recorded on a sponsorship form that I created using a computer spreadsheet and will be enclosed with this project as evidence. We will be phoning family members, knocking on neighbours doors and asking friends and teachers from school for sponsorship over the 2 weeks. By doing this we hope to reach our target of �100. From Thursday the 27th of October to Thursday the 24th of November we will be collecting the sponsorship money in the same way we secured the sponsorship; phoning family members, asking friends and teachers at school and knocking on neighbours doors. We will then be hoping to make the donation via the British Red Cross website sometime within the next month (November 25th to December 23rd). * 11/10/05 - 24/10/05: Collecting sponsorship by knocking on neighbours doors, speaking to family members and asking friends and teachers at school * 25/10/05: Fast takes place at my house, lasts for 12 hours from 8am to 8pm. * 26/10/05 - 24/11/05: Sponsorship money is collected by knocking on neighbours doors, speaking to family members and asking friends and teachers at school. * 25/11/05 - 23/12/05: Sponsorship money is donated to the British Red Cross via their website in order for them to help the relief effort in Pakistan and India. ...read more.
