Giving Tuesday

Tuesday 27th November is Giving Tuesday and we’re asking if you can add your voice to our #GIVE4Shine campaign! We want to raise awareness of the difference that a strong community of young adults with cancer can make. We're also aiming to raise funds to keep our Shine Networks across the country supporting young adults with cancer!

We want to make sure every young adult diagnosed with cancer in their 20s, 30s or 40s is aware of their closest Shine Network and the support we provide through our 13 Networks around the UK! It’s where Shine started and one of the most important parts of our work! Pledge now to join in on the day!

There are two ways you can do this:

1. Blog: We want to sign up 10 bloggers to write a blog post to highlight how a gang of peers who have similar experiences with cancer (your cancer crew if you will) helps. If you’ve been to a meet-up, you could write about how our local Shine Network events help, what you’ve enjoyed about them and why you’d recommend them to others. We’re asking each blogger to inspire 10 readers to donate £10 – a total of £100, enough to support the activities of five of our local Shine Networks for one month. Get in touch below and we can send you further details.

2. Social media shares: We’re asking as many people as possible to share how Shine Networks support young adults with cancer. We’d love those posts to inspire your friends and family to donate £10 to support our local groups. Download our images from this page (just right click and save as) and you can share them with your own comment about how Shine has helped you or why you’re supporting us. Don't forget to use the hashtag #GIVE4Shine. You can also update your social media profile picture to show you’re supporting us: Get a custom frame for your profile pic here!


Our goal is to raise £3000 to support all of our Networks meet-ups for a year.
