YouTube superstars, Alfie Deyes and Zoella are backing the Do Your Thing campaign for BBC Children in Need.
BBC Children in Need has launched its fundraising campaign and is asking people across the UK to channel their passions, hobbies or dreams to do their thing and help change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
A galaxy of famous faces have come together to support the fundraising campaign, including Matt Baker, Alex Jones, Anita Rani, Judy Murray, Ore Oduba, Alfie Deyes, Zoella and Sara Cox.
The celebrities are asking the nation to ‘Do Your Thing’ and fundraise for BBC Children in Need. From fancy dress to fun runs, facing a fear or taking on a once in a lifetime challenge, holding a bake sale or completing a sponsored silence, everyone can turn the thing they most fancy doing into an amazing fundraiser.
Alfie said: “I want everyone to get involved and Do Your Thing for BBC Children in Need to raise money for disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.
“Hosting a fancy dress day, running a bake sale or taking on a sponsored challenge are just a few fun ways to show your support and help make a difference!”
Zoella said: “My BBC Children in Need thing is dressing up. From bake sales, to facing your fears, sponsored silences to jumble sales – whatever you do all funds raised will go towards supporting disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
“Get involved and Do Your Thing!”
The official fundraising pack is available for download now from bbc.co.uk/pudsey and is bursting with ideas to inspire Do Your Thing and kick-start the public with their fundraising efforts, plus lots of exclusive content from the Charity’s celebrity friends.
