Cancer Research UK and TK Maxx collaboration, 'GiveGet'
By Michael Hanna
GiveGet is an annual campaign run by TK Maxx and Cancer Research UK and is one of the biggest charity collection campaigns in the UK. You should be familiar with the concept: collect any unwanted – or unused – clothes, books, music, and DVDs – anything in fact, which you want to donate: even household goods. Donated articles will be sent to Cancer Research UK shops to be sold and proceeds from sales will be used to help those suffering with cancer.
It's a serious problem in the UK, with recent statistics showing that, for example, of the total population in England, one in three will develop cancer during the course of their lives. Now more than ever, we need campaigns like GiveGet to help alleviate the suffering cancer causes.
Which isn't to say that everything about the campaign needs to be serious to get its message across – this year's GiveGet campaign will have as its figurehead Rachel Hunter. Miss Hunter will no doubt inject a bit of glamour into proceedings and help the GiveGet campaign achieve on at least one of its targets: that of being this Spring's most important fashion collection.
TK Maxx and Cancer Research UK will be handing out GiveGet donation bags in their thousands this March, with the official opening date for the campaign set for Saturday the 18th, the GiveGet campaign will run up until Sunday the 2nd of April. You can take your GiveGet donation bag to any TK Maxx (www.tkmaxx.com ) or Cancer Research UK store in the UK to be collected and used to raise funds – each full GiveGet bag could be worth up to £30 for Cancer Research UK.
The more you give the better it is, as Cancer Research UK rely heavily upon public for donations and a campaign on the scale of the GiveGet campaign can make a huge impact on the fundraising efforts of the organisation.
It's an annual affair, the GiveGet collaboration between Cancer Research UK and TK Maxx, and they are aiming to beat all previous donation targets this year, with the £2 million mark in their sights this year. It's an achievable target, with the value of donations last year reaching £1.28 million – more than double the original target.
So get ready for GiveGet, and this 18th of March you can do a spot of Spring cleaning, de-cluttering, and just straightforward donating by giving those GiveGet bags filled and into TK Maxx stores or Cancer Research UK stores nationwide. You shouldn't forget about GiveGet either, as the cries of 'sort it out', 'bag it up', and 'drop it off' get louder as the 18th of March approaches.
