- Donate or Fundraise: The choice is yours
Although absolutely necessary, current lockdown measures are continuing to have a huge impact on our charity as fundraising events have come to a halt. We urgently need your help.
The Big Blue Thank You coincides with our virtual events campaign Do it for Dementia and we would love you to get involved.
This is the perfect chance to say thank you to Alzheimer Scotland's key workers including our Dementia Advisors, Community Activity Organisers, Volunteer Coordinators, Link Workers and Locality Support Staff who continue to support many thousands of people throughout Scotland.
How can I get involved in the Big Blue Thank You?
The concept is simple. We'd like to encourage everyone to complete an activity of their choice, to make a donation or choose to fundraise, and to share this on your social media channels using the hashtag #bigbluethankyou to spread the word and get as many of your friends & family involved as possible.
People of all ages can take part. The options are endless for which activity you'd like to take part in - from walking, running, cycling, to yoga and even simply cleaning the house, doing some gardening or getting crafty.
When you join you will have access to your own personal portal that makes fundraising simple and allows you to create and track your fundraising activities. You will also have access to exciting features such as award badges, the ability to produce your own personalised event number and easy sharing of your achievements across all social media platforms.
When does the Big Blue Thank You take place?
Anyone can join the Big Blue Thank You for free from Sunday 5th July, on this day you’ll be able to sign up at www.bigbluethankyou.com.

You can complete your chosen activity whenever you like, it doesn’t need to be on the 5th, it’s whenever suits you. Just make sure you share on your social media networks when you complete your activity, use the hashtags #bigbluethankyou #TeamAlzScot and encourage others to get involved too!
