18th to 24th April is the week we all turn orange to raise awareness of neonatal herpes. You might wear orange, walk in orange, make an 'orangerie' of orange items, bake orange cakes, paint your face orange or just take a picture of something orange! Just choose a day that suits you and GoOrange! All to support Kit Tarka Foundation and help save babies' lives. Suggested donation is £5 per household.

Neonatal herpes (the cold sore virus in babies) is the cause of death of up to one baby every week in the UK yet often remains undiagnosed and untreated. The awareness and funds raised by GoOrange! are vital in making many more people aware of the dangers of the herpes virus in newborns and saving lives as a result.

You can join in wherever you live in the world and all ages and abilities are very welcome - it really is an event for everyone!

Join alone or with friends, family, schoolmates or colleagues - it is completely up to you. We just ask that you wear (or hold!) something orange and share photos and videos on social media using the hashtags #GoOrangeForKit and #NeonatalHerpesAwareness and tagging @KitTarka. There is a scavenger hunt for little ones and fabulous prizes for the best-dressed, biggest and most creative 'orangeries' and top fundraisers.

Everyone who registers will be emailed a downloadable GoOrange! pack with printable photo booth accessories, otter mask and scavenger hunt. Register at kittarkafoundation.org/go-orange to take part.

It will be wonderful to see our supporters across the country and around the world coming together in glorious orange in the week commencing 18th April. We can't wait to see your snaps!
