It’s time to show some spirit!


We have designed this toolkit to help you set a fun and exciting tone for Spirit Week in your agency/installation/office/unit. Each day of the week features a different theme to incorporate in your promotion and planning, and the Spirit Week Scavenger Hunt is an easy way to share information about the campaign and inspire participation.

Daily Themes

  • Monday, Dec. 2 – Patriotic Day. Wear or decorate your office space in red, white, and blue to honor the tradition of the campaign and why it’s so important!
  • Tuesday, Dec. 3 – Giving Tuesday. Make an online pledge and help make this one of the most successful giving days of the entire campaign.
  • Wednesday, Dec. 4 – Way Back Wednesday. We’re going back to our roots to review the history and impact of the CFC.
  • Thursday, Dec. 5 – International Volunteer Day. Pledge volunteer time to share your skills with a CFC charity.
  • Friday, Dec. 6 – Pep Rally Day! Come together to celebrate the campaign and view the new campaign video.

Plan Spirit Week Activities and Events

Engagement opportunities can increase pledges, make you (the organizer) look like a rock star to your leadership, and even boost employee morale. Here are a few ways to plan fun engagement activities and events during Spirit Week:

  • Share the daily resources and Scavenger Hunt Questions. At the end of the week, distribute Spirit Week Certificates in the way that works best for your office. You can choose to make it a competition, present certificates to only those with correct answers, give them to all participants, or some other approach.
  • Plan a Friday Pep Rally. Top off the week with an in-person or virtual event to share information about the CFC and celebrate giving. Show the new campaign video and invite charities to join the fun. If planning a virtual event, try to set up a video conference to show the campaign video and some of the videos from the Virtual Charity Fair.
