This is a great one for everyone in the community – schools, colleges, businesses & individuals! All you have to do, is wear it blue!
You’ll be raising awareness of Mental Health Awareness Week and also raising vital funds for Conwy Mind! You could do it throughout MHAW or pick one day and simply wear blue clothes or accessories or organise your own blue-themed fundraising activities with our support! Here are a few ideas:
- Simply wear something blue in your workplace, university, college, school or nursery and invite donations from those dressing up. Think blue clothes (including socks!), blue accessories (wigs, hats, ties, bows, scarves, make-up, body glitter), even blue body parts (blue beards, hair and moustaches also count).
- Schools or colleges could organise a wear it blue non-uniform/dress-up day. We suggest a £2 donation for each child or young person taking part (to share the amount between Conwy Mind and your school or college) – and we can provide primary school resources around mental health for use in your setting.
- Businesses can ask for donations from employees who wear it blue during Mental Health Awareness Week. Or how about a blue-themed quiz, office ‘best-dressed-in-blue competition’ or a blue-themed bake sale (think blueberry muffins or blue icing)? Could you do your bit for corporate social responsibility and match-fund the money raised?
