Various charities are launching online fundraising activities in the run-up to Christmas.
Imperial Cancer Research Fund have teamed up with ShoppersUniverse to sell a Christmas quiz over the Web.
Comic Relief is back just for Christmas - so pleased were they with their online fundraising success in March this year. For one month only their new site has a variety of features, including a new joke each day on their advent calendar, and the option of secure online giving. Tony Robinson, who plays Baldrick in Blackadder, will be making a celebrity guest appearance on the Comic Relief site, which is sponsored by BT.
The Wildlife Trust is teaming up with City 2000 to offer electronic Christmas cards bearing the Trust's logo and a link to its "Dedicate a tree" site.
