January was a difficult month for many people as Covid restrictions were reinforced (then removed) and the Omicron variant spread quicker than ever, causing concerns for a safe return to work after the festive break. We decided to ease ourselves into 2022 for that reason, focussing our monthly theme on Sleep, Rest and Recovery instead.
But now it’s February – and we’re ready to get stuck in!
The #FebFive challenge follows the rule of five. We’re asking you to:
Form a group of 5: Friends, family or work colleagues can all get involved.
Set a #FebFive challenge: Read 5 books? Walk 5 miles? Watch 5 films (movie marathon!)? Run 5km-a-day? Volunteer 5 hours of your time? The possibilities are endless!
Donate £5: Help raise money for covid:aid along the way so we can support all people who have been significantly affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
The most important thing is to have fun doing something you enjoy with five of your favourite people. So, get creative and start brainstorming your #FebFive ideas!
Share your challenge with us on social media @covidaidcharity, using the #FebFive hashtag and add your fundraising page on JustGiving at: justgiving.com/campaign/febfive
Your entry could even be featured as our Fundraiser of the Week on social media throughout the month of February. Look out for our email in your inbox to find out if you’ve been selected.
Michael MacLennan, Founder and Chief Executive at covid:aid, said, “The #FebFive challenge is a great opportunity to edge people into 2022 with optimism. We want to motivate the UK public to work together towards an achievable goal – providing a chance to reconnect with loved ones and have some fun in the process.”
“As a charity, we love to see the creative ideas our fundraisers come up with and the results are always incredible! We look forward to seeing what heights #FebFive will inspire people to reach.”
Your support can really make a difference to the lives of people across the country who have been affected by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Join the #FebFive challenge to help us help the UK.
