The anti-racism football charity ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ is asking for your help.
To show your unity against racism and to raise vital funds for the UK’s largest anti-racism educational charity wear something red on Friday 16 October and donate £1 – it’s as simple as that.
In previous years you’ve done a brilliant job raising hundreds of pounds for SRtRC enabling them to continue with their vital work to educate against racism and highlight the harm it causes. This year we can’t ask you to campaign in workplaces in the usual way but you can still take a stand against racism by taking part in Wear Red Day.
Every person and every penny counts. Join in. Just wear RED wherever you are, snap and send us a selfie and text RED to 70470 to give £1, RED5 to give £5, Red10 to give £10 to Show Racism the Red Card.
Share your selfie on social media with #Usdaw and #SRtRC.
Racism wrecks lives. 2020 has seen a huge shift in the anti-racism cause. Now is the time to use this momentum to push for lasting change.
