CAMPAIGN TIPS

  • Get permission from your local council to display the colour turquoise along the streets of your town or city.
  • Negotiate with the shopping centres in your community to decorate the centres with the colour turquoise. Arrange to man an information stall on Saturdays to give information about the elderly and their needs.
  • Request local churches to help create awareness about the plight of the elderly.
  • Organise a drawing (or colouring) competition in which children draw their grandparents, like this one drawn by Madison (6 years old).
