Let's face it, the older we get the less stuff we need, so why not set up a charity fundraiser page on Facebook for your birthday this year?!

Get a feel-good factor by asking your friends to donate to Children North East instead of embarking on a last-minute dash to the shops for a card and gift that'll probably end up in a cupboard.

Your mates will get to feel great too as you'll all be making life-changing differences to the lives of babies, children and young people across the North East.
