London NYE fireworks

Be part of Unicef New Year’s Resolution

The Mayor of London New Year's eve fireworks joins with Unicef, the world’s leading children’s organisation, to help children in danger around the world like those affected by the conflict in Syria.

Every New Year we make and talk about our resolutions, making a promise to ourselves to do more, become better, or healthier in the year ahead, only to break them by the end of January. This year, Unicef’s campaign Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is, is all about making a resolution you can keep, and having some fun in the process! 

Join thousands singing along and sharing the song

It’s time for you to join in the fun! You can download the blue mouth chorus on Unicef’s Resolution website to have a go yourself. Make sure you visit the website through your mobile so you can save the file in your videos.

When you have the chorus, simply hold the phone up to your mouth, press play and let the phone sing the song while you dance to the beat. Once you are happy with your mouth-tastic performance, just get a friend to film you, or film yourself and a bunch of friends (your mouth-mob) on your phone or web-cam. The more the merrier, and the wackier the better!

Next you can upload it on the social media channel of your choice, using the hashtag #HappyBlueYear and remember to tag @unicef_uk in your posts. Make sure you nominate your friends and get them all to join in!

Most importantly, don’t forget to Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is and support Unicef's New Year’s resolution by donating £3 to help keep Syria’s children safe in 2016. You can donate on the website or text Text NYE to 70060 to donate £3.
