Smiley Pancake – Tuesday 28th February
Why not take part in Smiley Pancake Tuesday on the 28th February to raise money and awareness for Mental Health Ireland.
Mental Health Ireland are kicking off 2017 with their Smiley Pancake Campaign. Mental Health Ireland want to encourage everyone on Pancake Tuesday (28th of February) to pop a smile on your pancake with whatever you like; sweets, Nutella, fruit or cream, and to make a donation to Mental Health Ireland by texting MHI to 50300 to donate €4, via paypal or a direct donation on site.
The idea behind this campaign is to create a space for people to have a bit of fun with family, friends, colleagues and even on their own, generating awareness about the impact and strength of a smile.
You might be able to facilitate a ‘toppings station’ for friends / students / colleagues to dress their pancake with a smile for mental health awareness. You could even have a pancake flipping contest!
Mental Health Ireland are asking everyone taking part to photograph their creation and share it on social media using #smileypancake and screengrab their text to donate, and include it in their post to encourage their friends and others.
