Fresh Egg Crack £175+ for ‘Wear It Pink’ Breast Cancer Campaign

Kat Cole

Friday 28October saw the advent of Wear it Pink Day; the year's biggest fundraising event for the Breast Cancer Campaign charity.  Taking part is really very easy – simply wear something pink for the day and donate at least £2 for this privilege.  The Fresh Egg crew just had to get involved to raise money for this worthy cause!

Obviously, as Fresh Egg’s resident pink haired wordsmith (Fresh Egg pink to be exact: 197-0-132!), donning something rose coloured was not as complicated for me as it was for some others.  Developer Stuart Stubbs’s nipples protruding out of his girlfriend's too snug t-shirt won’t be a sight many of us will be forgetting in a hurry! Still, I donned a scarf for the occasion and what I consider to be the best shoes to have ever graced my/anyone’s feet.

I spent a good half an hour counting up the many donated coins and notes this afternoon and Fresh Egg managed to raise a staggering £175 for the cause and the donations from staff continue to roll in!

Here are the Fresh Eggers in their pink glory:

But we couldn’t have raised so much money by wearing pink alone and as such, our soon-to-be-departed SEO Copywriter Maria Holburt “volunteered” to put her already-lacking credibility on the line in order to raise additional funds. “How so?” I hear you ask. Check back to the blog next week and we’ll show you...
