The Care Workers’ Charity is looking to sign up care workers and their friends and families to take part its new ‘Around the World’ fundraising campaign.
Centred around the Kaido Wellbeing app, the campaign is asking colleagues and teams to earn as many ‘Kaido points’ as they can.
Points are collected through making positive improvements to your physical and mental health, such as practicing mindfulness, completing a virtual exercise class, or doing some gardening.
By taking part, participants will embark on a virtual journey ‘Around the World’ following in the footsteps of the intrepid explorer, Phileas Fogg.
Emily Barnett, Partnership and Events Manager at The Care Workers’ Charity, explained: “Our Around the World campaign is all about encouraging care workers and their friends and families to get involved in a fun challenge which will help improve participants’ mental and physical health.
“Covid-19 has placed an immense amount of pressure on care workers up and down the country. We hope that this campaign will not only draw in funds to continue our work, but act as an enjoyable antidote to the stresses and strains of the current epidemic.”
The challenge, which is taking place over four weeks between July 20 and August 14, has been sponsored by Avery Healthcare, Cinnamon Care Collection and Oakland Care.
To participate, each team should register here and nominate a team leader by July 20. Once a team has registered, other individuals can be invited to join.
The Care Workers’ Charity are also asking each team to set up their own JustGiving page via the charity’s ‘Around the World’ page. To do this, teams should click ‘Start Fundraising’ on the right-hand side of the page, with a suggested target of £300 for each team.
Barnett added: “If you or anyone within your workplace is interested in getting involved with the challenge, please register at Kaido and set up a supporting fundraising page on JustGiving. If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org”.
