Give It Up for Veterans
The most important detox you’ll ever take part in!
On average, most adults spend 40 hours a week on their phones – that’s longer than we spend working, eating or socialising!
We’re calling on you to challenge yourself by giving up technology. You can join in when you like for as long as you like. Is your willpower up to the challenge?
If that doesn’t seem like much of a challenge you don’t have to stop at technology; you can Give Up anything you choose! How long you Give It Up for is up to you – a day? A weekend? The whole month?
Take part in Give it Up for Veterans to raise urgently needed funds for ex-Service men and women who have lost their sight. You can sign up individually or refer a friend or family member to abstain from anything you like...
How to Give it Up
Choose your vice! Pick something that will be a challenge to live without, it’s no good choosing to give up meat if you are already vegetarian (we’re watching you, you little tinker).
Set up your fundraising page! It’s quick and easy and is the best way to get people to sponsor you for being a quitter.
Nominate others! Don’t suffer alone, take to social media and publicly nominate three friends to Give It Up with you.
Give It Up! Document your journey and let others know how you are doing as you embark on the morally superior road of being a quitter.
Things you can Give Up
Still not sure? Think about something you do or use every day that you couldn't imagine living without if it were taken away – Chocolate? Driving? Swearing? Shopping? The possibilities are endless!
