Here are 6 ways to support Pink Ribbon Day:
Host A Gathering
Have some friends around to your place for morning or afternoon tea and ask them to donate what they would have spent on a similar outing had you gone out. This is a great way to raise money and a perfect excuse to catch up with those friends you haven’t seen for ages.
Buy some Pink Ribbon Day merchandise or volunteer your time to sell some. Merchandise is readily available at Big W, Century 21 Offices, New Balance stores and HCF branches. For more locations check out www.pinkribbon.com.au.
Bake some biscuits and sell them at your school, local sports club or church. A good friend of mine made these and I think they look amazing. (For a similar cookie cutter, check out www.cakesaroundtown.com.au).
Offer practical support to a family who is directly affected by cancer at the moment – this may be offering to make them a meal, wash their car or mow their lawn.
Sell pink helium balloons at your school gate one afternoon and charge $2/balloon with all funds raised being donated to the Cancer Council Australia. (Remember to get the Principal’s ok for this one beforehand).
You can donate directly to Pink Ribbon through the Cancer Council Australia. Every donation helps fund cancer research, early detection and patient support programs.
Wouldn’t it be amazing to see cancer kicked in the near future? At the end of the day, the more money raised to fund ground-breaking research into new and better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer – the better!
