Hosting a fun and easy Pink Ribbon fundraiser
I wrote before about some wonderful reasons to get behind Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon campaign this year.
As I mentioned, Cancer Council NSW has given me incredible support throughout my cancer journey, right from the very beginning. I’m so honoured to be working with them now to help raise vital funds for cancer research, prevention and support programs for women like me.
It’s scary to think about what my cancer experience would’ve been like without the help I received. Having Cancer Council there meant having someone who listened and really understood my situation.
It was a huge comfort during my toughest moments.
That’s why it’s so important to me that other women affected by cancer can access similar support – whether it’s reliable information, counselling services or financial assistance during treatment.
The most fun and easy way to get involved with Pink Ribbon this year is by hosting a Pink fundraiser with friends, family, work colleagues or the local community.
It’s the perfect excuse to catch up for a delicious breakfast, luncheon, morning tea or BBQ and show your support for a cause that really matters.
You can host a Pink fundraiser at home, in the office kitchen or at your favourite local venue. Invite people around for some pink-themed treats or host an office bake-off at work. All you need to do is ask people to make a donation or contribute an entry fee!
Some other fun ideas include holding a raffle, decorating the whole office pink or, if you’re daring, dying your hair pink to raise funds! The possibilities are endless.
And the most amazing part is, not only will you be giving everyone a day to laugh, have fun and socialise – you’ll be raising life-saving funds to help beat women’s cancers.
As someone who’s benefited from Cancer Council’s services, it means so much to me seeing people in my community – young people, families, shops and local businesses – fundraise for this fantastic campaign. I really hope you can join me in getting involved too!
