    do a charity campaign holding

    Is it natural? I think "why don't we hold a charity campaign" is better. I can't get what "holding" here means.

    98)G: Why don't we do a charity campaign holding for sick children during the school festival?
    B: That's a great idea! ...

    not a teacher

    Are you sure there's not a word missing?
    "Why don't we do a charity campaign holding concerts/raffles for sick children…", for example.

    I don't know. That's what I saw in a student's material. So you mean the original doesn't make sense?

    Re: do a charity campaign holding

    We can say "to hold a campaign" so I think the writer has used a very clunky "to do a campaign-holding", rather than "Why don't we run/have/do a charity campaign for sick children ...?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
