"We have decided to WEAR IT and GO PINK because we've each had far too many friends and relatives suffer from breast cancer. Wearing pink is something simple we can do to raise much needed funds for research which will help eradicate this terrible disease."
- Lisa, Kat & Joss, pledging to Wear it
How people are going pink this June
The more men and women raise funds and GO PINK this June, the closer we get to stopping deaths from breast cancer! So what are you waiting for?
Getting involved is easy, you can keep your social distance and you can still make a big difference!
HOLD A PINK FASHION PARADE
Gather your friends, family or workmates and see who struts their stuff best in pink! Share a link to your fundraising page and everyone who wants to take part makes a donation to enter. Give prizes to the best dressed.
SHARE YOUR PINK
PLEDGE AT WORK
Share your pink pledge with clients, suppliers, contractors and customers, by email or video conference. Social distancing doesn't have to stop you getting the word out that you're making a difference.
HOLD A VIRTUAL EVENT
WITH YOUR SOCIAL CLUB
Get creative on your desktop, tablet or mobile on Facebook or other social media platforms. Share pictures or videos in a group message or live stream your pink event to connect with friends who can't be there in person.
LIVE STREAM YOUR
SHAVE FROM HOME OR WORK
Share your shave by streaming live on Facebook, Instagram or TikTok with your supporters. Your loved ones can be there to hold your hand while friends, family and colleagues cheer you on virtually.
Take your hair into your own hands and make a splash on social media with your striking new look. Host a pink hair tutorial or a how-to event to encourage friends, family or colleagues to join you and raise more!
LET'S GET PHYSICAL
Help keep your friends and colleagues active while they're working from home by hosting a pink exercise class online for donations. Share your fundraising page and encourage some healthy competiton - the lowest number of squats or burpees gets a 'fine'.
PROUDLY WEAR PINK
WHEREVER YOU THINK
At this time of social distancing, wearing pink can be your badge of honour that it's business as usual and that you're making a difference. Blog your personal pink parade on your fundraising page to encourage donations.
STEPS TO FUNDRAISING SUCCESS
Your online fundraising page is your most useful tool - make sure it's personalised with a photo of yourself and some details on why and when you’re going pink.
Tell your mates. Tell your mate’s mates. Tell your colleagues and your kid’s mates at the school gates. Get them to join you because growing a team is the easiest way to make a bigger impact and have more fun!
Going pink is great, but raising money will make a REAL difference. Share your online fundraising page with as many people as possible and ask them for a donation.
If you’re on a roll, think bigger. Could you host a pink-themed party in June? Pledge to do a dare if you raise an amount of money? Get your workplace to match your donations? Let your imagination run wild and have fun with it!
