"Some infinities are bigger than other infinities"
We've teamed up with Penguin Books to support young people with cancer across the UK, just like the characters in The Fault In Our Stars. Join them for a night of infinities on 26 June 2015 - a huge UK and Ireland-wide The Fault In Our Stars themed sleepover! Find out more over on the Night of Infinities website, sign up to take part and receive your free fundraising pack.
The pack includes all you need to set up your own fundraising sleepover, real life stories from young cancer patients and a thank you letter from the book's author John Green for taking part.
Get involved on the night and donate via their JustGiving page to receive an exclusive video from John Green. Make sure you also tune in to Wizard Radio between 6-8pm for TFiOS music, chat and activites!
Why not do a #FacepackSelfie too! Share it on social media and text STARS to 70300 to donate £1 (we receive 100% of your donation, full T&Cs)
I worked as a student chaplain at a children's hospital about 15 years ago for five months. During that time I started wanting to write about the young people I had met there… It just took a long while for that book to become The Fault in Our Stars. From that experience, I understand the importance of charities such as Teenage Cancer Trust and the work they do in bringing young people together and helping them get the best possible care in the best possible environment. I would be delighted if fans of my book were able to translate that into tangible support for the charity.
Charli XCX, whose song Boom Clap was released as the first single from the soundtrack album of The Fault in Our Stars film and achieved worldwide chart success, is also getting behind it:
“It is incredible how passionately people have responded to the book and the film. I really hope that enthusiasm drives as many people as possible to organise a sleepover and have fun while raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust which does so much for the many young people with cancer like Hazel and Gus in the UK.”
Get involved and join us for a #NightofInfinities this June.
