2010 Guardian Christmas charity Appeal

That great journalist Patrick Butler emails me about the Guardian's Charity Appeal.

They want to choose 10 charity projects working with disadvantaged teenagers and young adults to be the beneficiaries of the appeal. But they don't know yet which projects to support, and so are encouraging readers to come up with nominations, and charities to tell us about their work.

The idea is they sift through these (with the help of NPC) and back the ten considered to be best, most innovative and effective... and hopefully raise lots of money for them and give them loads of publicity!

Patrick comments on the sector's they have chosen

" Personally I'm pleased we've chosen this group: they are mostly ignored by the media (except to be demonised), aren't high on the political agenda, and - I can't help feeling - are going to be hammered in the spending cuts"

So ACEVO members! Get cracking and send in your thoughts......
