#HelloYellow is our biggest campaign, taking place every year on World Mental Health Day.

We encourage everyone to wear yellow and donate £2 on the day to help show young people they're not alone with their mental health, and help us raise vital funds to continue our work.

You can get involved with your school, workplace, community group, or even on your own. So, dig out your neon socks, custard scarf and banana hat, and join us in saying #HelloYellow this Friday 8 October.

Unfortunately we are unable to share individual fundraising pages or accounts. While we are incredibly grateful for the support of all of our amazing fundraisers, we receive a lot of requests and have taken the position that we should reserve use of our social media channels for mental health information, tips and updates on our campaigning work. We thank you for your understanding and we really appreciate your support.

We chose to support YoungMinds because we know they're the best charity out there for young people's mental health. We don't want anyone to be in the position where they think no one can help, and the more money YoungMinds receives, the better we can break down the stigma of mental health and get support out to all who need it.
