take time out for just one meal to think about the thousands of children who need our help in this country and abroad
Feed The Children (UK)’s dedicated Breakfast2Live website will help you save lives. The website at www.breakfast2live.org.uk has been specially created so that all the information concerning the appeal, which runs this year from Monday 20th February to Sunday 26th February 2012, can be found in one place.
In addition to giving visitors information on the campaign, the bright and cheerful site also holds documents that supporters can easily download to use to promote their events like posters, leaflets, invites and other templates. If supporters would like the publicity material customised for their event then the charity is happy to do this.
During the week Monday 20th February to Sunday 26th February 2012 the charity is encouraging people to eat a hearty breakfast to save someone else’s life? Cafes, restaurants, schools, colleges, businesses and people at home are being asked to get involved by staging breakfast events to raise money for the charity’s life saving projects in developing countries and breakfast clubs in this country.
As charity chief executive officer Brian Main explains, "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we are asking people to take time out for just one meal to think about the thousands of children who need our help in this country and abroad. In the week commencing Monday, February 20th we’d like people to run or join a breakfast event that will raise money for Feed The Children (UK).
The charity has a number of ideas that people can use:
· You can host a breakfast and invite friends (get items donated and then charge a small fee of say £5.00 per breakfast).
· Restaurants and cafes can donate a small percentage of the price of a special ‘Breakfast2Live’ on the menu to the charity, or have a collection tin on the day and ask for donations to the charity from everyone eating in the restaurant.
· If you have regular coffee mornings, get a batch of cakes or breakfast muffins donated or baked, invite your friends along and if everyone pays about £1.50 for a cup of tea or coffee and a muffin you can raise money that way.
For more ideas about the ‘Breakfast2Live’ or to take part, call Feed The Children now on 0118 932 0095 for more information.
