Go and visit your MP
Your story is powerful. Make an appointment with your MP or go to their drop-in surgery and let them know why breast cancer is important to you. Read our guide to setting up an appointment with your MP here, and print out our MP briefing on the #55000Reasons campaign here (PDF).
Are you organising an event?
Wherever you are in the UK, have you thought about inviting your MP to your Breast Cancer Now fundraising event? It’s a great way to increase the profile of your event - and hopefully raise more money - while also showing political decision-makers why breast cancer is important to you. Read our top tips here
Are you giving a talk or speech about breast cancer?
Some of our photoshoot models are already giving talks in the community or at work to raise awareness of breast cancer during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you’re doing the same, you can also mention the #55000Reasons campaign, what we’re trying to achieve together, and why. Here’s some quick bullet points about the campaign you can add to your talk.
