Brand Recruitment is always keen to support charities and do our bit to raise both money and awareness. Last year we had a lot of fun supporting the charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer by taking part in the ‘Pink Bake Off’ and raising £91.35. So this year after hearing about Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s brilliant new social media fundraising campaign ‘#TheChangeChallenge’, we are continuing our support by taking on the challenge.
#TheChangeChallenge involves people pledging to make a change in their life for just one day in return for likes, retweets or followers on social media and a donation to support Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s life saving research. Those taking part are required to set themselves two change challenges and two fundraising targets – here at Brand Recruitment, we declare that if we manage to raise our fundraising target of £50 we will all come into the office for the day wearing pink, but if we raise our second target of £75 and get 75 new Twitter followers our colleague, Dan, has kindly volunteered to let us wax his legs!
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK with around 50,000 women and 400 men diagnosed each year. We are taking part because we want to help beat breast cancer. This is Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s first social media campaign and it shows how even making just a small change can make a difference and help raise awareness.
We have until the 10th March 2014 to raise as much money as possible as part of #TheChangeChallenge. Here at Brand Recruitment we are all really excited to meet both our £50 and our £75 target as we are looking forward to seeing Dan get his legs waxed! But we need all the support and donations that we can get.
