How it works
Go green this October and you’ll be raising money for the Cerebral Palsy Society – the only charity in New Zealand dedicated to helping people living with Cerebral Palsy reach their highest potential and have more independence, freedom and choice.
The funds you raise will help provide vital funding, care, support, research and advocacy for Kiwis, young and old, living with Cerebral Palsy, and their family and whānau.
All you have to do is go green and make a donation or ask for donations. Simply head on over to our Givealittle page to donate.
Taking part in Be Green & Be Seen
is as easy as 1-2-3-4!
Step 1: Decide HOW you are going to go green
Get creative to encourage donations:
- Host a workplace green morning tea – think spirulina smoothies and green cupcakes!
- Have a ‘wear green’ casual Friday or mufti day, at school or work, or dress up as your favourite green movie character
- Hold a green quiz with your friends or colleagues
- Colour your hair green (temporary products recommended!)
- Host a green fashion show where people can vote for their favourite outfit
- Create green-themed art and host an auction or raffle to sell it and raise funds
- Run a face-painting competition for children
- Raffle off a jar of green lollies or a hamper of green-themed goodies
- Decorate your office or letterbox green.
There are plenty of green ideas out there – we’d love to hear yours!
Step 2: Decide WHEN you are going to go green
The official Be Green & Be Seen day is October 6, to coincide with World Cerebral Palsy Day.
But we’re going to be celebrating Be Green & Be Seen throughout the month of October.
So feel free to go green on any day that suits you – heck, why not join us and go green for the entire month?!
You can use these awesome Be Green & Be Seen resources to help promote your green event.
Step 3: Time to donate
It’s super easy to donate to Be Green & Be Seen – simply head over to our Givealittle page.
