Planktober is an initiative of Touched by Olivia Foundation to enable a coming together of community to create a positive and lasting impact.

We will be working with charities, government, corporates and changemakers to take collective action to drive connectedness.

Through the raising of funds and awareness achieved through planking 5 minutes a day (or more or less, your choice!), we will harness social capital and enhance local assets to strengthen our community.

What do I have to do? You can register to participate as an individual, family or team or solely make a donation and set a fundraising goal based on the number of minutes planked. You will be encouraged to seek sponsors and donations through your own fundraising. So, say you set a goal of 5 minutes every day during October, then it’s totally up to you whether you smash it all out at once, or break the 5 mins down into increments that suit you to do during each day!! There will be a few weekly challenges and incentives, so get into it. Winners will receive a prize from our generous sponsors, so keep an eye out on our social media and your emails.
