Our Chosen Cause
Charity work is close to our hearts at FOUR.me, the power of people coming together to support a single cause is so important and groups like Justgiving are a fantastic way to generate funds for your chosen charity, so it got us thinking how to promote a Justgiving page with a FOUR on your shirt.
In the news recently has been the sad but inspiring story of Deborah James who battled bowel cancer and used her voice to encourage others to get checked, as a result Deborah James has saved many lives and raised over £7 Million in donations to Bowel Cancer UK.
FOUR.me Sponsored Run Plan
It can be difficult to raise both awareness and funds for your chosen cause, often it’s simply a case of delivering an important message in a short space of time which can be very difficult when you are competing with all the other important causes out there.
Many people when raising funds and awareness, will do activities such as fun runs, Tough Mudder type assault courses, swim long distances, hold cake sales and community events, this is fantastic and generates lots of interest and support.
Preparation for our charity run later this year, we hope you like our team donation shirt! Go to four.me and enter the word in red to see what cause we’re supporting and donate now if you can #charityrun #charity #funrun #influencer #influencermarketing #donate #donation #donations #bowelcancer #bowelcancerawareness #deborahjames #bowelcanceruk #ibs #dogood #dogoodthings #makeadifference #justgiving #goodcause
Effectiveness of FOUR.me for Donations
At FOUR.me, we believe if you select a four letter word that relates to your cause and have it printed on a shirt, using our tech to redirect anyone who enters that word into the FOUR.me website, they can be taken straight to your chosen donation page.
This is much more memorable than having a long URL across your shirt. There are so many possibilities and you can get people to come up and talk to you.
We chose to put “POOP” in caps and in red on our shirts, because it’s eye catching, it will create conversation not just about the word and having POOP in big red words written across your shirt but also about the cause and in turn will help us to spread awareness and remind people to check their Poo’s for blood as this is an early warning sign of possible bowel cancer.
It’s not possible to speak to everyone at a fun run where potentially thousands of people will come to run and watch, but we are in no doubt that if we saw someone run past us with POOP on their shirt, it would catch their attention and they would go to FOUR.me and check it out.
Consider how you might use this and what causes you could support?

Bowel cancer is very treatable but the earlier it’s diagnosed, the easier it is to treat. Finding blood in your poo can be one of the symptoms, yet some people are still reluctant to talk about this as poo is a bit of a taboo subject. Don’t be embarrassed and tell your GP.
