What is your title? Looking at more than one genre might make your study more interesting, but it also adds another variable. Maybe consider adverts aimed at different audiences. Are you looking at print, television, radio or online advertising?

Charity advertising covers quite a wide field, so should give you plenty to look at. You could compare charity advertising with a different genre, such as adverts for a product, or those annoying PPI pop-ups, but this would give a very wide range of material and ideas to look at in a limited word count.

It might be better to look at different genres within the charity theme, such as comparing those raising money for environmental causes, the elderly or disaster relief, to see if they all use the same methods. Alternatively, find adverts aimed at different audiences, such as teenagers or older people.

There is a short summary of features that you could look for here ; I would also think about 'politeness'.
