raising money for asthma

Hi me and my mum was talking and we thought it would be a great idea to open some asthma uk charity shop to raise money for people needed new asthma drugs, but the charity shop doesnt have to be like any other we was thinking about designer clothes one and applying to desiner companys and celebritys asking them to donate.

I would be grateful if you could tell me if you think its a good idea so i can raise the question when i go to a asthma uk meeting. Thanks sophie

that's a great idea, definitely go for it!
