#HelloYellow

Wear yellow and donate £2 to YoungMinds this World Mental Health Day.

Because a little yellow goes a long way.

What's #HelloYellow?

Dig out your neon socks, custard scarf and banana hat and show young people they're not alone with their mental health. It’s simple: wear yellow, get fundraising and have fun! We can’t wait to see everyone’s brightest outfits!

We all struggle with how we're feeling sometimes and it's normal to have ups and downs. This year might have felt a little more down than up. But it's the little things that have got us through it - the morning walks, singing in the shower, the perfect cuppa, that Netflix show that got us all buzzing, the bestie who makes you LOL, the teacher who has your back.

Saying #HelloYellow is a little thing we can do to make a BIG difference to young people's mental health. Because a little yellow goes a long way.

Our social media team try to keep posts on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels related to mental health tips and information. Due to the large scale of our #HelloYellow campaign, we are therefore unfortunately unable to promote fundraising events. 

We would love for you to let everyone know about your fundraising though, so please do get posting about it on social media! Tag us @YoungMindsUK.

Unfortunately, due to the high volume of #HelloYellow supporters taking part in this event every year, we are unable to send out any additional resources or promotional materials. However, our #HelloYellow resources hub has plenty of free, downloadable materials to support your fundraising, from posters to photobooth props, so please do take a look.
