What is the Big Blue Thank You?

Big Blue Thank You is a worldwide movement that anyone can join for free. The three objectives are: 

Saying Thank You

Thanking key workers across the world for the incredible work they are doing every day.  

Raising funds for charities

Charities urgently need our help and we want to support the amazing work they continue to do throughout this challenging time. 

Getting People Active

We are encouraging everyone to find an activity that makes them feel good and want to get active. Any activity that will help support fundraising efforts is a perfect Big Blue Thank You Activity. 

 

 

We want everyone who joins the Big Blue Thank You to feel part of a huge community of like minded people who are coming together to do something universally positive.

The Big Blue Thank You provides an easy and engaging way to fundraise for a charity of your choice. We have over 400 Affiliate Charities who would love for you to show them your support, whether you raise £5 or £500.

You can support your chosen charity either by making a direct donation, or by setting up a Thank You Activity, creating a JustGiving page and asking friends and family to sponsor your heroic efforts!

When you join the Big Blue Thank You community you will have access to:

  • Your own personal Big Blue Thank You portal that makes fundraising simple

  • Your own personalised activity section where you can create and share your Big Blue Thank You activities

  • The ability to create and share your JustGiving fundraising page quickly and easily

  • A personalised Big Blue Thank You activity number to wear for your activity

  • A personalised certificate on completion of your activity
  • Award badges that can be earned when you engage with Big Blue Thank You
  • The Big Blue Thank You Community Hub where you can see all of the social posts from community members around the world

Join the community now and let's do something positive together!
