What is Phoneless Friday?
It's bravery. It's willpower. It's one day with no calls, texts or apps. Think you can do it? Then build a team, grab your Phoneless Friday Kit, lock up your phone and donate £5.
Where your money will go
The money you raise will help us transform children's lives.
It could even help us give phones to families, so we can safely transfer them money, and they can buy food. That's how we've helped Alister. And because he doesn't spend his days begging for money now, he's back in school.
Your phone will miss you. And you will miss your phone. But be strong. Tuck it away in a drawer or leave it at home - and try your very best not to worry.
For a genuine emergency go ahead and use it. For social life emergencies, pay a £5 forfeit to use your phone (if you really must use it.)
Of course! The official day is Friday 7 October, but you can take part on any day of the week.
We suggest ignoring it from the time you go to bed on Thursday night, to when you wake up on Saturday morning. If you can't last that long, feel free to do 9 to 5.
You'll get everything you need to power through the day. Things like posters to promote the day, stickers for your team members and a step-by-step guide. You'll even get some conversation starters to help you navigate the awkward small talk.
