Pink Ribbon Breakfast is Breast Cancer Foundation NZ’s biggest fundraising campaign, where each year, thousands of amazing Kiwis all across NZ get together to do good in their communities. The money raised helps fund breast cancer education; innovative projects by some of our country’s top researchers; and supports patients and their families as they navigate through their breast cancer journeys.
Anyone can host a breakfast, and it can be as small or as large as you like! All you need to do is invite some friends or family around, get your work colleagues or team together, and give them breakfast, morning tea, lunch or dinner. It can be as simple as a cup of coffee and a muffin. In return, your guests can give you a donation to pass onto the Foundation, or you can organize games, have merchandise, run a raffle or auction, or sell tickets to your event.
If a breakfast’s not for you, why not take on a challenge? You could dye your hair pink, run 10km or give up sugar for the month. Simply let everyone know how you’re challenging yourself and get them on board to sponsor you!
There are four easy steps to hosting a Pink Ribbon Breakfast:
- Register and set up your online fundraising page.
Online fundraising is the best and easiest way to collect donations for your event, we'll automatically set you up a fundraising page when you register. You can change and edit this page at any time, or collect funds offline if that works best for you.
- We send you a host kit with some goodies to help get started.
You have the option of receiving a host kit (or not) when you register, which is full of pink ribbon merchandise, breast health information, and a few decorations to help you get started.
- Plan your fundraiser.
You can host an event, organise a virtual fundraiser, or any other ideas you have! It can be at any time of the day (or night) that suits, and as big or small as you like. Check out the Host Information tab for invitations, tickets, and posters, plus heaps of ideas about what to do. Here are the most common:
Set up your online fundraising page and collect donations online
Host an event and collect donations or sell tickets where a percentage is donated
Host an event and play games / have activities / an auction or raffle to collect donations
Take on a challenge; dye your hair pink, give up sugar, or do 10,000 steps a day.
- After your fundraiser.
Simply bank the money you’ve raised, and return any merchandise you have left over. You can find all the ways to get the money you have raised back to us on the "Transfer funds" section of your host page.
