When is Big Hearted Bears Month, what is it and what can you do?
Sun 1st October 2017
After an amazing Big Hearted Bears Day at our match against Hearts on August 19 the Rangers Charity Foundation is now embarking on Big Hearted Bears Month.
Taking place throughout the whole of October, Big Hearted Bears Month will promote the work the Foundation does on behalf of the Rangers Family and celebrate our supporters who make it all possible.
There are loads of ways you can get involved during October from doing something as simple as reading our posts and sharing our stories with your friends to signing up to take the True Blue Hero Pledge.
Introduced back on Big Hearted Bears Day, the True Blue Hero Pledge asks people to commit to raising £100 or more for the Foundation during Season 2017/18 by getting sponsored to do a personal challenge.
We have a list of events that supporters can sign up to or register their interest in on our website. Once you have done so the Foundation will then offer you support and guidance as you take on your challenge.
We will even be introducing a new challenge for supporters to sign up to take part in later in the month. The event will look to put a spin on a very important date in Rangers history. Keep your eyes peeled for more details soon.
As well as fundraising for the Foundation we will also be announcing a new way for supporters to become a True Blue Hero which involves you making a difference on behalf of the Rangers Family.
It’s not all about pledging to become a True Blue Hero in October though, we have a fantastic competition coming up where you can win a signed Rangers shirt, which will be presented to the lucky winner by a player at the Rangers training ground. To be in with a chance of winning be sure to be following us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
Keep an eye out on the Foundation website and social media channels for news on each of our charity partners Unicef UK, Scottish Autism, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, Glasgow City Mission, Simon Community Scotland, Erskine, AA Veterans Support and The Coming Home Centre. We will be sharing details of their work throughout the month so supporters can truly understand the importance of our partnerships with them and appreciate the difference they are making by giving their support to these organisations.
Our amazing community programmes will also be highlighted and you will be able to read the difference the Foundation is making in your name throughout the month. We have almost 20 different programmes from our projects which see us working with over 5,000 young people in Glasgow to our work helping older generations find a job and others recover from addiction.
The Foundation will also have a presence at our only home match in October against Kilmarnock on Wednesday 25th. Look out for our new Rangers Charity Foundation matchday area situated on the grounds of the Stadium and come over and chat to us!
The Rangers Charity Foundation exists to be a force for good – make October the month you help make a difference.
