Blue Nose Week 2018
Autism Ireland are delighted to announce Blue Nose Week from Monday April 23rd – Sunday April 29th 2018. Following the success of Blue Nose Day over the past 4 years, we decided to extend to make it a week long campaign to give everyone a greater opportunity to get involved. April is autism awareness month and #BlueNoseWeek will provides an opportunity to help raise awareness and understanding of autism, while also helping raise funds for our charity. As a charity that does not receive any government funding, our annual income is raised through a variety of different fundraising events and projects. We are therefore very dependent upon the generosity of the general public and without this support, we would not be able to continue to provide this vital support to families throughout Ireland.
This year we hope to make Blue Nose Week our flagship event, by encouraging schools, businesses and communities to have ‘blue day’ by wearing all blue that day, walking a mile for autism and / or having a blueberry muffin morning whilst also taking some #BlueNoseDay selfies.
1.Blue Day is simple
Just encourage everyone to wear blue clothing during #BlueNoseWeek and make a small donation to Autism Ireland. Blue is the colour associated with autism.
2.Walking a mile for autism
This is for everyone to take part. From your school, workplace or even your home set out and walk a mile together with family and friends and make a donation to Autism Ireland. You can wear your blue nose while walking. With every step you take and every euro you raise, you will help enhance lives and accelerate a spectrum of solutions as part of our 5 point vision plan.
3. Blueberry muffin morning
Along with your tea / coffee why not treat yourself during #BlueNoseWeek to a nice Blueberry muffin and make a small donation to Autism Ireland.
For more information on any of the above please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 044-9371680.
We will have our Blue Nose Week poster available for download soon
Please support #BlueNoseWeek 2018 and help our charity to continue to support the 276,000 people in Ireland living with autism.
