Our 3 tips for taking part in wear it pink on your own.

If you’re not quite up to organising a wear it pink event but would still love to be involved in some way – don’t worry, we’ve got you sorted! No matter what you’re doing or how many people are involved, you can always help fund cutting-edge breast cancer research and provide life-changing support for those affected by breast cancer. 

Here are some ideas on how you can wear it pink.

1. Do a sponsored challenge

Ever fancied dyeing your hair a fabulous shade of pink? Would you like to shave your head in solidarity with those going through treatment? There are so many ways that you can raise money, by getting your friends and family to sponsor you as you do something out of the ordinary. The sky’s the limit, but here are a few of our favourite ideas: 

  • Dyeing your hair pink 
  • Shaving your head (make sure you have a good think before you do this one!) 
  • Go a whole month or week wearing only pink 
  • Boycott a luxury item for a period of time. This could be social media, sweets or coffee 
  • A sponsored walk, cycle or hula-hooping competition

2. Set up a JustGiving page

Set up a JustGiving page and ask for your friends and family to contribute a donation, as you wear pink. Don’t forget to share your fundraising on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn – turn your social media pink! Remember, every penny matters so no amount is too little or too big. 

3. Wear pink wherever you are, and make a donation

Choose your most fabulous pink outfit and wear it pink whether you’re staying in or going to work or school. Tell everyone why you’re wearing pink and help us raise awareness about breast cancer symptoms and our life-changing support services. Share a pink selfie, Tweet about it and remember to tag @breastcancernow, using the tag #WearItPink. Then, make a one-off donation for wear it pink.
