Getting Ready


  1. Get a team together. Pick your fundraising activities and assemble a small team of denim helpers. Print extra posters and stickers from our website and don’t forget to collect some money bags from the bank.
  2. Shout about your day. Set up your JustGiving page for your workplace it will allow colleagues to donate and give more at no cost to them by ticking the Gift Aid box.
  3. Use the email template in your toolkit. This gives colleagues all the details they need
  4. Be social. Your Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn accounts are all brilliant tools for spreading the word, so be a good deed influencer! Oh, and remember to follow us too!
  5. Let the local media know about your day. Find a press release in your toolkit.
