I sat in on Friday watching Children in Need as I do most years. The irrepressible Wogan in the living room again for his annual airing, like a prized Christmas decoration your kids made at school and you can't bear to part with. Only this year I found myself making notes. That's what having a blog can do to you if you let it.
So, as we celebrate the new Impact section on Huffington Post we should celebrate the impact charities like Children In Need and Family Action are having on children and young people. We must also make sure that we campaign for change and improvements so that young people can get the best start in life and they have the opportunity to have a positive impact on all our futures.
I'm delighted today to announce the launch of HuffPost UK Impact - our new page dedicated to issues, charities and making a difference.
