Join the Blackout…

On your own…

Spend up to 48 hours going without something you love! Sign up now, kick-start your fundraising by setting up a Justgiving page and share it with your friends and family. Check out the downloads, then post the Blackout image we send you to your Instagram profile telling the world that you’re joining the Blackout. Challenge three other people to lose what they love and to join the Blackout too (nominate them and tag them on your post). Your friends and family will be rallying around to support you in no time!

As a group…

It might seem a bit daunting to lose the one thing you love for up to 48 hours, so why not encourage your youth group, CU, small group or even church to Blackout with you? We’re producing some special leader downloads to help you scale up your Blackout. Set up a prayer room, run a prayer event and spend time together doing some fundraising activities (like holding a bake sale). And of course, you can still get sponsored – set up a group Justgiving page and ask your friends, family and church to support you!
