Last Thursday we threw a special launch party in our drop-in, to mark the official start of this year’s ‘Give it up‘. That’s right folks, we’re now counting down to 4th November when it all begins and you can sign up right now!
We opened the doors to our drop in, dressed it in fairy lights and lanterns, brought in a very talented film crew and photographer and sent out some VIP invitations. Amongst our guests were…
Our Give it up GEEKS!
This means they’ll take part again and will promote it amongst their friends, family, neighbours, colleagues, classmates, social networks, pets… (or anyone who will listen!!)
Then when people sign up to the challenge they can say who they’ve been ‘GEEKED BY’. We’ll keep a track of this and reward the three ‘Biggest GEEKS’ with prizes at the end of the campaign.
If you’re not an official GEEK this year please do still help us to raise awareness and encourage everyone you know to take part. And if you raise more than £125 in your challenge you’ll be the first to receive your GEEK invitation next time
Our Give it up Ambassadors
As we look forward to an exciting finale concert next Spring, we’ve also invited some talented musician friends to join in with the campaign. Our musical Ambassadors will take part in the challenge and promote it amongst their fans. We’ll feature them here on the blog at various stages of the campaign so you can get to know them, hear their music, find out what they’re giving up and why they support the campaign. With their help we hope to reach masses of music lovers with a heart for a good cause!
Bristol Film and Media are kindly putting together a short film of the launch party which we hope to share with you in the next few weeks.
So with only 27 days to go till the 125 day challenge begins, have you signed up yet? Here’s 125 ideas to help you decide what to give up so you have no excuses to delay… we can’t wait to hear from you! Thank you x
