Get your business team to join in the fun of the World's Greatest Shave
Today, 35 Australians will be given the devastating news that they have leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a related blood disorder.
World’s Greatest Shave is your chance to help them by raising vital funds for the Leukaemia Foundation’s important work.
Help us to provide practical and emotional support for families free of charge, and to invest millions of dollars in research to improve treatments and find cures.
Taking part builds teamwork and staff morale. Everyone at every level can take part and it’s a fun way to engage clients, customers and suppliers.
The event creates fantastic photo opportunities to include in newsletters, your annual report, website and social media.
Businesses in the past have identified potential leaders from their team captains.
Plus they’ve seen the benefits of working together on a project ‘outside of their work roles’.
Appoint a Team Captain to sign up and get your team started!
It really motivates everyone at work if they know that the boss will double what they donate to your shave!
Check to see if the company you work for runs a dollar matching scheme and make sure you apply for a share. If not, ask them to consider starting a scheme for World’s Greatest Shave!
Don't forget Super Teams are also a great way of 'clubbing together' with insterstate branches or sites to combine your fundraising into one grand total nationally. It’s even easier for the company to make a donation to support everyone’s efforts – get out that corporate credit card!
Make sure you tell us if your company wants to donate, dollar match or set up a Super Team – call 1800 500 088.
Hold an event
Have the event at work and don’t just keep it in-house. Tap up your clients, suppliers, families of employees – and really get behind the cause.
Make it your own
Your shave event can be as simple or sophisticated as you want – and held on any day.
Focus on Friday
Hold a Funky Hair Friday – tie it in with a BBQ lunch or late afternoon drinks.
People who shave raise more for the cause – so be brave!
Make sure everyone wears colour in their hair on the day! Try hair chalk, hair spray or coloured gels.
Get the guys to wax – it’s great fun to see the boys in pain for a change – this can raise big bucks from the girls.
We have a host kit packed with ideas and tools to help you, and if you want the public to attend we can promote your event on this website.
Hold an auction
Auction off the right to shave the brave!
Add face paint
If the older men are bald already – get creative on their melon-heads!
