Oh it doesn't matter if you're 14, you can organize a drive just as well anyone else. Follow these steps:
1. Find a place to do it. Common charity drive locations are libraries, schools, radio stations, malls, the YMCA, and churches. The catch is that you usually have to let them take credit by hanging banners and such.
2. Advertise. Don't just place a few newspaper ads. In order to really get the word out about your drive you have to litter the town with signs and fliers. It also isn't a bad idea to do a website just in case someone sees one of your ads and wants to know more about it.
3. Arrange some entertainment to liven up the event. It doesn't matter what it is as long as it keeps your contributors from being totally bored while they're there.
4. Use your friends as volunteers. This will be especially important the day of the drive because if you have too few volunteers then people will have to wait longer to give you their money, which means they'll be more likely to not give you their money.
