I still have a few more doubts. Could you check the following phrases and improve them, please?

1) I spend my time selling "homemade"/handmade (?) charms to earn money.
2) He fears an accident, an injury or a breakdown of his motorbike.
3) They will get/raise (are they both possible?) money for a charity.
4) "Is your birthday next Saturday?" She asked me if my birthday was the following Saturday (and not "If it was my birthday the next Saturday?)
