Paint August Yellow - Host a Yellow Day 

Every August, the colour yellow symbolises raising awareness and funds for the 1 in 3 New Zealanders who will receive a cancer diagnosis during their lifetime.  By hosting a Yellow Day, you can help them. 

Host a morning tea, meal, or dress up day at your home, office, or school and raise critical funds needed to support the work of the Cancer Society.  Your event will help Paint August Yellow, and send a powerful message that no one should go through cancer alone.

Register your fundraiser now – help Kiwis with cancer.

How to Host

1. Register your event

This will create a fundraising page for your event – set it up with a photo and description of your Yellow Day. Once you’ve registered, a Cancer Society Community Fundraiser will be in touch soon to support you.

2. Organise your Yellow Day

Decide what you’ll do for your Yellow Day. Will you host a morning tea, meal time, or a school mufti/dress up day?

3. Promote your Yellow Day

Invite attendees with official invitations! Create an event on Facebook and invite attendees. Be sure to share your fundraising page link to collect donations, especially from those who can’t attend on the day!

4. Deposit Your funds

Deposit any remaining funds directly to your fundraising page after the event concludes.
