On Thursday 20th June we’re asking our supporters to show solidarity in wearing stripes – whether socks, a top, an accessory or a fashion statement you’ve been desperate to show-off – and donate to Stripey Stork to help a family in need.
Does your child attend a playgroup or school which may be able to support us? Can you and your colleagues wear stripes for the day? Are you associated with a local business who may be interested in running a ‘stripey’ promotion? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how we can support your efforts.
Help us to spread the word, so we can make this even bigger and better than last year, and achieve our target of £1500.
The funds raised on the day will be used throughout the year to buy new items needed to complement the pre-loved items included in our children’s clothing packs – such as underwear, socks and nightwear- and complete our donations. We want the recipients to feel like they are receiving a gift and not a handout, and including such items in new, clean condition helps us achieve this.
These essential items make such a difference, so please wear stripes on 20th June and remember to tell your friends, family and colleagues about our campaign. You can show your support by downloading our Stripes4Stripey supporter’s profile frame for Facebook and/or Twitter using this Twibbon link.
You can donate online here (on the day): http://www.localgiving.org/appeal/stripes4stripey2019
Please remember to share your stripey photos on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #Stripes4Stripey2019. We had such great fun last year seeing all the photos come flooding in. From local councillors tweeting stripes from their meetings, to office bake-offs and our mascot Stripey doing a mini-roadshow with some of our corporate partners.
We also had lots of Stripey visitors at HQ on the day, as they came to admire our Stripey décor and join us in indulging in some stripey doughnuts. We even had photos coming in from foreign lands – our loyal supporters not letting being out of the country get in their way of supporting Stripey Stork.
How far can we spread the stripes this year? What will you do? The skies the limit, as long as it’s stripey of course!
Thank you #TeamStork for your support!
