October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – the perfect time to fundraise as awareness and support of the cause is heightened generally due to the amazing media coverage during this time.
Choose to GO PINK this October and show your support for Too Many Women.
Pink ideas with friends:
Tea, lunch, drinks, coffee, dinner or dance, it’s entirely up to you how big or pink you go. You could even turn Halloween pink! Ask people for a donation to attend and sell pink food and drink too. You could also play pink party games, such as karaoke, a cheesy fancy-dress competition or the pink balloon pop (fill a room with pink balloons, put messages inside them such as ‘you’ve won a prize’ or ‘try again’ and then charge people to pop one).
‘Who played the Pink Panther?’ ‘What is the real name of the singer Pink?’ Hold a pink quiz evening at home or yourlocal pub/club and ask for a donation from each person or team to enter. Contact Leah (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a list of special pink themed questions.
Pink Fun-Run / Bra-Dash
You could do this with a group of friends or during your lunch-break and get the whole office involved. Everyone either makes a donation to take part or gets individual sponsorship to do a 10 minute fun-run (or the route could be longer, it’s up to you) around your local area in a silly pink costume or with decorated bras.
Pink ideas at work:
Encourage your colleagues to get baking and get creative with their cake decorating. They could make a donation to enter the best-cake competition and then all of the cakes could be sold around the office (or entire building) with all of the money being donated to TMW.
Ask for a donation of £2 per person to play the ‘What’s in the Pink Wardrobe?’ game (download it below). Reveal the winner when all the items have been picked or on a designated day.

Pink Dress-Down Day
Everyone makes a donation to dress-down for the day and perhaps wear a hint of pink as well!
Get sponsored to give something up for the month of October and ask your colleagues to do the same with donations being made to TMW, e.g. quit smoking, quit using the lift, quit coffee or tea or ask everyone in the office to donate the price of their morning coffee, lunch or round of drinks every Friday. Alternatively you could be sponsored to do something for the entire month, such as walk or cycle to work, make someone tea or do their photo-copying for the month!
