Go Pink for a Day this October
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and what better way to show your support for the thousands of women each year who are diagnosed with breast cancer, than by going PINK!
Hundreds of workplaces, schools, community groups and people around New Zealand help raise much needed funds for breast cancer education, research and support each October, and would love for you to join them this year.
How it works
Register here. This also sets up an online fundraising page, which will make it easy for people to donate online using a credit card, and they will automatically be sent a donation receipt.
We'll send you a Pink For A Day pack, which will include posters, pink ribbons, balloons, and some important info about breast cancer for your workplace. You can also order more Pink Ribbon merchandise if you need it.
Pick a day in October to go pink - you can run a raffle, hold a morning or afternoon tea, ask customers or clients for donations - whatever works for you!
Here's a few tools to help you get started:
As well as having fun and doing good, Pink For a Day is about creating a platform that enables conversations about breast health and general wellbeing at work. More than 650 Kiwis die from breast cancer each year, and so many more are affected. The earlier we all have the information we need and know what to look for, the more likely we are to achieve our vision of zero deaths from breast cancer.
