Our impact, news and views

WearRed 2021

WearRed will return this September for a whole week of fundraising challenges, webinars, and other exciting events!

 


What is WearRed?

WearRed is our biggest annual fundraising campaign. The premise is simple – wear red and donate! Get your co-workers involved by organising fundraising events like a bake sale or virtual pub quiz, all for a charitable cause. Every donation matters, and every pound raised will help RedR UK train humanitarians around the globe.  

What Makes This Year Different?

Last year, 104 offices took part from Melbourne to Mumbai, raising almost £18,000. This year, we’re aiming even higher. We’re hoping to get at least 120 offices on board to achieve our goal of £25,000. If you think your office could be one of them, click here to find out how to sign up!  

That’s not the only change we’re making this year. Rather than just one day of fundraising, we’re extending WearRed for the whole week from the 6th to 10th of September. That’s five days of exciting fundraising events! Every afternoon that week, we’ll be hosting webinars for you and your colleagues, friends, and family to join. From sustainability to yoga, join us on Zoom and donate to show your support.

Why Does It Matter?

With your donations, RedR UK will be able to provide a valuable service – training aid workers across the world, from Venezuela to Bangladesh, in the skills they need to respond to disasters. Don’t just take our word for it, watch the video below and hear from last year’s fundraising champions speak about why WearRed matters, and how you can get involved.
