#Pinkcycled for Pink Ribbon Foundation

This year, we’re bringing back Pinkcycled! We are calling all creatives to support the amazing work of the Pink Ribbon Foundation (Reg. Charity No. 1080839). We’re challenging you to join us and upcycle something in pink – #pinkcycled!

Not only will this be a fantastic way to raise awareness and funds for an amazing charity but it will also be a great fun challenge, allowing us to unleash our creativity, pink style!

How can I get involved in #pinkcycled?

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is simple. You are challenged to upcycle anything you like, but it has to be PINK!

  1. Create your wonderful pink upcycle, perhaps have a look at some Preloved furniture to give a second life?
  2. Take some well-lit, clear photos of your creation
  3. Set up a free Preloved account
  4. Drop us a message on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram so it can be converted to a free charity account to allow instant messages, unlimited photos and priority listings
  5. Upload your item to Preloved, ensure you include Pinkcycle in the title and description
  6. Share it on social media under the hashtag #pinkcycled
  7. Once you receive a message about an item, tell the buyer to pay through Justgiving (they must detail what item they want in the donation information)
  8. Ship the item or arrange collection
  9. Post about it on social media, using #pinkcycle and feel free to tag @Preloved, @pinkribbonfoundation and @lynnelambourne to feature!

And that’s it! Easy as #pinkcycled pie! However, that’s not the only way to get involved…

Bloggers and video creators

We would love to see ‘How-Tos’ of your creations, to inspire the masses and create a buzz around the hashtag. This way, not only can we raise money and awareness, but share top upcycling and product knowledge within the upcycled community!
