National Adoption Week - After Adoptions Big Breakfast

Postby Communications » Tue Nov 04, 2008 3:54 pm

After Adoption is calling all its supporters to take part in its Big Breakfast fundraising event which is happening in National Adoption Week, 10th-16th November.

It’s simple and fun to take part in this great event. Simply invite family, friends or collegues for breakfast, whether it’s at home, work, school, or a social group – anywhere you like – and ask them for a donation to raise vital funds for After Adoption. The official date for After Adoption’s Big Breakfast is Monday 10th November but you can host it at any point in Adoption Week, whenever is most convenient to you and your guests.

Why not make this an opportunity to catch up with friends, colleagues at work or to bring people together in your community - all while raising awareness and all-important funds for After Adoption in National Adoption Week 2008.

We’re looking for businesses to get involved too – so why not ask your local café if they’ll support us in some way during the week? Every breakfast counts!

Is it the same week every year? Would it maybe get more coverage if it was moved away from Armistice Day?

Good point Lilit - although for some of us oldies Armistice week is quite relevant to our own particular circumstances. Not suggesting that we are more important of course, just that there is a strong connection.
