  'I want to help end child poverty'
Updated 20 June 2002, 18.06
Molly, who's 12 and from Reading, wants all children to have the same chances
Molly, 12, reports on the launch of the e-card that's designed to help end child poverty in the UK.

"I'm supporting this campaign to raise awareness and end child poverty in the UK because I don't think it's fair that some kids get more opportunities than others just because they're better off.

Molly, 12, from Reading, thinks the e-card is a good idea
Molly sends her e-card to the Chancellor

Every child should get the same opportunities. Being poor shouldn't mean you don't get such a good education or as many chances in life.

I think it's time the government took some action to tackle this. There needs to be more publicity to make people more aware of how many children are suffering.

I think the e-card a great idea. It's appealing to kids and it doesn't take very long to fill it in and send it to the Chancellor.

  What does "poverty" mean?

I like the look of the e-card itself, the picture's good, but the writing is a bit hard to read as it's in a strange font. But otherwise it's great.

I'll certainly be sending an e-card. It's easy to do and it's important we end child poverty in the UK.
