When will I receive my fundraising pack?
Digital fundraising kits will be sent out in the first weeks of September to everybody who has signed up to take part in #HelloYellow and you don’t need to opt in. If you're a primary or secondary school, please ensure you have signed up on our website and requested a postal pack before 20th September in order to receive your resources – these will be delivered towards the end of the month.
Our school ranges from early years through to sixth form. Can I sign up for a primary and secondary school pack?
As your school includes pupils of primary and secondary age, we are happy to send you out both our primary and secondary school packs. If you have not already done so, make sure you sign up on our website and request a pack before 20th September in order to receive your resources. There is no need to sign up for each age group of your school. Simply let us know that your school requires a pack for both age groups by contacting [email protected] Your packs will then be sent out towards the end of September.
Can you share our post about fundraising on social media?
Our social media team try to keep posts on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels related to mental health tips and information. Due to the large scale of our #HelloYellow campaign, we are therefore unfortunately unable to promote fundraising events. We would love for you to let everyone know about your fundraising though, so please do get posting about it on social media! You can also join the YoungMinds online community at Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up to date about our work.
Are you able to visit our school and take an assembly?
Thank you so much for thinking of inviting us to take part in #HelloYellow at your school. Unfortunately, we would not be able to accept your kind offer as we receive so many requests and simply don’t have the resources to attend.
Can you send us some extra fundraising resources, such as collecting pots or t-shirts?
Unfortunately, due to the high volume of #HelloYellow supporters taking part in this event every year, we are unable to send out any additional resources or promotional materials. However, our brand-new, bright and beautiful #HelloYellow resources are available to download on our website! Our online fundraising resources hub also has loads of free, downloadable guides and materials to support your fundraising. If you’d like to buy our brand new #HelloYellow bracelets they’re available in our shop.
I am an individual/club/community group taking part in #HelloYellow. Can I still opt in to receive a fundraising pack in the post?
This year our fundraising packs are specifically designed for primary and secondary schools, so unfortunately we are not able to post packs to individuals or other groups. However, in the first weeks of September you will receive a digital fundraising kit by email to support your fundraising. You can also check out our brand-new, bright and beautiful #HelloYellow resources, available to download on our website! Our online Resources Hub also has loads of free, downloadable guides and materials.
I don't have access to a printer. Can you send me a fundraising pack by post instead?
Our postal fundraising packs are specifically designed for primary and secondary schools, so these cannot be sent to individuals or other groups. Unfortunately, due to the high volume of #HelloYellow supporters taking part in this event every year, we are also not able to print off the digital fundraising kits and send them by post to participants.
