  Children love giving to charity

Giving to charity can help people in other countries
Giving to charity can help people in other countries

Young people in the UK are a very generous and charitable lot, says a new survey.

A huge 76% of 11 to 16 year olds help to raise money for their school.

While 80% say they are only too willing to dig into their piggy banks and give money to a good cause when they were asked to, and most think charities use the money wisely.

And the giving even makes three quarters of young people feel really good!

Gimme gimme gimme

The survey was done for the Giving Campaign to help launch a new Giving Nation scheme.

It aims to encourage more young people to get involved with charity work where they live and help raise even more money for people and local projects.

The survey proved that most children and young people love to do things at school like fashion shows or fairs to fund-raise.

And CBBC Newsround Online noticed the number of you who told us your schools were using the England-Brazil World Cup game as a chance to fund-raise.

Some of you had to pay to wear England strips, paint your face and watch the game!

Well, as long as it's all for a good cause!
