Wear it pink day – Friday 23rd October
Every year, wear it pink raises around £2 million during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, by asking people to wear something pink and donate whatever they can.
So, on the 23rd October, the Datanet team swapped their usual office attire for something pink and enjoyed the delights of loads of pink sweets and cakes. Everyone made a donation for wearing something pink and Datanet matched the total raised.
This year Datanet decided to get involved with Operation Christmas Child, which is run by the charity Samaritans Purse UK.
If you don’t already know, Operation Christmas Child asks for shoe boxes to be filled with items that children will love. We filled our shoe boxes with toothbrushes, toothpaste, cuddly toys, notepads, pens and various other toys for children to play with and cherish.
We contributed a total of 5 boxes which will be making the long journey across the globe and will hopefully bring some joy to children who would not have received any presents this year.
