What is it?

Big Blue Thank You is a worldwide movement that anyone can join for free. The three objectives are: 

Saying Thank You – Thanking key workers across the world for the incredible work they are doing every day.  

Raising funds for charities – Charities urgently need our help and we want to support the amazing work they continue to do throughout this challenging time. 

Getting People Active – We are encouraging everyone to find an activity that makes them feel good and want to get active. Any activity that will help support fundraising efforts is a perfect Big Blue Thank You Activity. 

Why?

With so many fundraising events being cancelled or postponed, the worldwide challenge aims to help charities raise vital funds during this really difficult time.

At Julian House, we’ve had to cancel or postpone all of our pre-existing fundraising events and we’re expecting a loss of £200,000 in income because of the Coronavirus pandemic. This has a massive effect on how and if we can keep our life saving services running in the future. 

But you can help us keep them open. Take part in the Big Blue Thank You challenge, choose us as your charity, raise funds and feel good knowing you’re helping us support the vulnerable men, women and children experiencing homelessness and escaping domestic abuse during the Coronavirus crisis.People of all ages can take part and you can design whatever challenge you like – from walking, running, cycling, to  gardening or getting crafty.
