Looking ahead

For the last two Octobers I've raised the issue of Breast Cancer in class, initially to raise awareness. Though last year I decided Awareness wasn't enough and I used my classes as a way of raising money for Breast Cancer Care. Essentially it was through my own financial contribution, but I found that my contributions were matched by my students.

I think I'll stick with the same methods as last year. I will pay 50p to BCC for each student wearing pink to class- it's like sponsorship. I will make sure they know about this, so that they have the opportunity to wear pink, and if they don't wear pink, I will point out that they can add contributions to the BCC sponsorship pot. It's not quite extortion, more like emotional blackmail.

ETA- I just checked back, and last year I ended up sending £77 to BCC, and it was about 50:50 between me & student contributions. I hope I can do as well this year, but with smaller classes and everyone so much poorer, or at least having to be more careful, I think that would be lucky.
