FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How can we get involved?
Your school can join in by asking the children to dress up in red, white and blue and bring in £1. For information and to sign up, click here.
Our school is holding another event that day, can we hold a red, white and blue day on another date?
Yes! We will count up all the money at the end of November, so it's up to you when you hold it.
Our children are from many different ethnic backgrounds, is it fair to ask them to dress up in red, white and blue?
This is of course, up to you but what we would say is this is really focused on the children, and you can use it as a chance to explain about the different lives and experiences children have.
Are you producing any publicity to help raise awareness of the campaign?
This year we have produced a Welcome Pack which includes information about the event, ideas on what you might like to do during your event as well as a poster to put up on your school notice board. We also have an A4 and A5 poster which you might like to use to let parents know about the event. All these items are available under the Downloads section of the website.
We have also produced stickers with the Red, White & Blue logo on them. If you would like a supply to use at your event please email email@example.com giving your address and the quantity you require.
Is there any other way we might raise more income from our event?
This year we are working in partnership with Easycoin to ask schools to get their pupils to bring in any foreign currency their parents might have at home in drawers. We have produced a poster, which is part of the Welcome Pack, which you can use to advertise this initiative.

You might also want to consider speaking to any local companies that you work with to see if they would like to get involved with your day. Perhaps they might like to match-fund whatever funds your pupils raise, or give a donation to add to your collection. Companies have corporate responsibility objectives and this might be part of their own plans to help the community.
Is it possible to get a high res version of the logo for our use?

What about colleges and universities, are they able to take part in Red, White and Blue Day?

We hope they will all come on board and be part of the action. To print off a copy of the poster suitable for older children, click on the relevant link:
I understand that you will be running a Competition, can you tell me more about this?
There will be a new competition this year which will be open to educational establishments who have signed up to be part of Red, White & Blue Day. More information will be available towards the end of April and will be sent to all schools and youth groups who sign up.
Now that we have all the money in from our RWB Day what do I do now?
All the information can be found under the heading Fundraising. It would be helpful if you could also send a brief email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting us have the name of your school and the amount paid in. This will help us to keep the total raised up to date and allow us the opportunity to send you our Thank You Certificate.
