Wear it. Beat it. is a charity fundraising idea for schools

Dress up the Kids

Get the kids involved in Wear it. Beat it. by dressing them up for the day. Whether you do this at home, nursery or school, they’ll love being in fancy dress, and it’s a simple way for you to involve them in the work of the British Heart Foundation.

They can simply wear red, or you can introduce your own theme – while we know superheroes always win the day, how about going as red fruit and veg so you can embarrass them with the pictures when they’re older. If everyone donates a pound or two the collection tin will soon fill up.

Dress to impress

To make more reddies, you could:

  • Host a dress up the kids party, offering teas and coffees in return for a donation.
  • Organise a red parade in the park. Everyone donates to enter, and each child can be crowned the winner of their own category (the stickers in your free fundraising pack make the perfect prizes). Forfeit fines for the grown-ups can be a fun way to raise more money too.
  • Do we really need an excuse to dress the kids up in a cute outfit and take lots of photos? Why not post your pictures online and get friends and family to donate on behalf of your little ones. Our selfie speech-bubble is an unusual way to give your little ones a ‘voice’ in the pictures and don’t forget to tag it #WearItBeatIt
