#PinYourThanks was born out of an idea after a founding member of a Covid-19 volunteering group in SE London, wanted to find a way to thank volunteers who had gone beyond the call of duty in helping others.
The idea grew into a nationwide initiative when he realised everyone in the UK should have the opportunity to say a personal, heartfelt and lasting thank you to all the volunteers, carers, NHS workers, key workers, teachers, sons/daughters, aunties/uncles, friends, neighbours and others across the country who have been selflessly supportive during the pandemic.
All profits go to supporting NHS Charities Together and Volunteering Matters.
It’s an opportunity to say thanks to remarkable individuals, and to mark that appreciation with a stunning pin badge designed by artists, celebrities and general all-round ‘good eggs’. Each hero will receive a heartfelt token of appreciation – ‘The People’s Medal’ as we like to call it – while charities will receive much-needed funds. Those of us pinning our thanks get a warm, fuzzy feeling inside
#PinYourThanks will also hold charity auctions and other initiatives to help raise money for charity.
Who is behind #PinYourThanks
A group of volunteers who simply want to give the Great British public the opportunity to say thank you to all the unsung heroes, so if we are not quite as polished as a large corporate organisation that’s why. Please forgive us, and be nice!

It will be a discreet but universally recognisable sign of our thanks. A badge gives a lasting and visible 'Thank You'.
