Top Tips for a ‘hybrid’ wear it pink

Posted on September 23, 2021

Are people coming along to your wear it pink event in-person and online? We understand the pandemic has changed the way that lots of people work and socialise, with more of us working at home and catching up over Zoom, whilst others are back in the office and meeting up regularly in person. So, your wear it pink event may need to look a little different this year to make sure everyone feels involved and you can still raise those all-important funds!

1. Set up a JustGiving Page

Set up your wear it pink JustGiving page. It’s one of the easiest ways for friends, colleagues, and family members to donate towards your fundraiser - and it’s cash-free, so everyone can donate easily. Once you’ve set your page up, you can share the link as soon as you’re ready.

2. Set up a group chat to share your snaps

If you’re wearing pink at work, you could set up a Microsoft Teams’ channel or if you’re taking part with friends you could set up a group WhatsApp chat. You can then use the chat to share your fabulous wear it pink outfits and anything else you want to share on the day. This way all guests will feel involved whether they’re there in person or virtually.

3. Make your games suitable for everyone to take part

When deciding what games to do at your event, try to pick games that work for people physically at the event or those attending virtually. The quiz is a great game that will work for everyone taking part.

4. Complete a group challenge together on the day

This could be anything from a lunchtime walk dressed in pink to making pink smoothies together to start the day, ask friends or colleagues attending virtually to send pictures or videos in your chat so you can see how everyone is getting on.

5. Organise a raffle

You can share pictures of the prizes with all your guests, and they can enter the raffle by giving a suggested donation via your JustGiving page. Having E-Gift cards donated could work well and would save on posting out the prizes. We recommend calling local businesses and seeing if they’d be willing to donate some prizes to your raffle.

6. Change the date if you need to

Does Friday 22 October not work for your event? No problem! You could spread your activities across the week, how about bingo on a Monday, bake sale on a Wednesday, and wearing pink on a Friday. Or instead, you could choose a day where the most people are in the office or if you're doing your event in the community perhaps a Saturday would work better. Whatever works for you.

No matter how you take part, your support means so much

2021 is the 20th year that we’ll all be wearing it pink, with over £36 million raised since 2002. Together, we can go even further and raise even more money for the people affected by breast cancer.
