    Sequence is important

    Is there any differences in meaning between these 2 sentences?

    1) The minister has launched a TV appeal for donations to charity.

    2) The minister has launched a TV appeal to charity for donations.

    Is the sequence of prepositional phrases crucial for some sentences?

    Thank you very much indeed.
