Own a colour for Valentine’s Day

Do you want to give your loved one something special for Valentine’sDay? So here is how to make your loved one happy and do something for charity at the same time. Own A Colour is a new charity initiative with UNICEF which gives you the opportunity to own and name your very own colour for a minimum donation of £1.

For Valentine’s day, Own A Colour has joined forces with Valentine’s hero Purple Ronnie to offer complimentary, specially written poems to anyone who gifts their loved-one a colour to own and name this Valentine’s Day.

It’s quite an original way to show the person you love that you care on the most romantic day of the year and every penny raised on OwnAColour.com goes towards helping save a child’s life with UNICEF.

Recent celebrity fans include Sir Roger Moore, Jemima Khan, Matt Dawson and Duncan Bannatyne.


Romantic rhyming favourite, Purple Ronnie, is creating a series of one-off poems for loved-ones this Valentine’s Day, to accompany a very special gift – your very own colour.
A world first, men and women will be able to gift their loved-ones an actual colour for them to own, through Facebook.com/OwnAColour, for a minimum donation of £1 – an initiative in aid of UNICEF, the world’s leading children’s organisation.

The gift of colour, accompanied by a unique Purple Ronnie poem, will be available from 8th February – for those who are organised – until Valentine’s Day itself – for those not so organised – and provides a special solution for all those Valentine’s Day gifting dilemmas, whilst also contributing to a great cause.
The limited-edition poem, in Purple Ronnie’s iconic cheeky style, will appear on your loved-ones Facebook wall on the 14th February, along with a link for them to pick and name their colour of choice.
Stewart Longhurst from the Own A Colour team comments:
“What’s great about the Own A Colour initiative is that, not only does it allow people to put their name to a never-before-owned colour, but it harnesses the power of colour to have a positive impact on saving lives of children. Colour is such an important and personal method of expression, so what better way to show someone you love them this Valentine’s Day than with a colour of their very own, accompanied by an original love poem?”

With Own A Colour, your Valentine will be the exclusive owner of one of the 16.7 million colours that the average computer, smartphone or tablet can display.
Recent celebrity donators include The Saturday’s beauty Frankie Sandford as well as other UNICEF Ambassadors and fans such as Jemima Khan, Matt Dawson and Sir Roger Moore, who have all been inspired by their loved-ones in buying and naming their colours; Jemima Khan named hers CFC Blue for her Chelsea mad son, Sir Roger Moore’s Swedish Blue for his wife and Matt Dawson’s colour reminds him of his wedding day.
