By holding a yellow-themed event, such as a ‘dress down’ day or cake sale, or any other ‘bright’ idea for fundraising, you can add sparkle to the lives of children with complex learning and behavioural needs, including conditions such as autism.
Choose a date to suit you.
Why not hold a yellow ‘dress down’ day in the office, with friends at home, or at school, and ask everyone to make a donation. You could wear a yellow top, tie or socks; paint your nails a florescent yellow; paint your face; go top-to-toe in a yellow onesie; or go completely bananas and dress as one!
If you prefer a tastier way of fundraising, a yellow-themed cake sale could be perfect for you. Ask for donations in return for a slice of lemon drizzle, a lemon curd or a custard-filled doughnut! Brighten up your cake sale with a lively table cloth and the yellow balloons in your fundraising pack.
Spread a little sunshine by growing your own sunflowers. School classes or children at home can learn how to sow seeds, water plants and measure growth. By telling friends, encouraging others, and laying down a challenge to grow the tallest, you can raise awareness of our work and autism.
