Awesome tips and ideas to help you on your fundraising mission

Kick-start your fundraising by donating to yourself

Making the first donation to your own fundraising page is a great way to get things started! Our most powerful action-heroes back themselves – it encourages others to donate!

Be as generous as you can

Give $50 and others will feel they should give the same, if not more!

Power up your online fundraising page

Take a before’ photo and make it your profile pic. Then update your page with your story, letting everyone know why you have accepted your mission. Your story is your secret weapon to conquer blood cancer!

Use our official app

Download the World’s Greatest Shave My Shave” mobile app. You can keep track of your fundraising goal, ask friends to donate, post progress selfies and more.

Share your fundraising page far and wide!

Share your page across your socials, and write personal emails to friends, family and workmates. These are proven to be the most successful ways to ask for support. Your fundraising dashboard gives you an easy-to-use template for this.

Print out a QR poster

You can find your very own personalised QR poster in your fundraising dashboard. Print this out for friends and family to easily scan it and give you a quick donation!

Make sure your mission is a success on the day!

You can shave, cut or colour your hair at any time or place that suits you. To make your big day even more special, why not hold your very own World’s Greatest Shave event?

Reach out to everyone who has supported you on your journey, and invite them to join you on the day! Shaving is even better when your family and friends are there for the big moment. Here are some great ways to power up your fundraising on the day.

Power up your fundraising on the day by auctioning off clipper privileges to the highest bidder for the right to shave your head! Or tie up your hair into lots of small sections and charge $10 a snip!

And remember to post plenty of before and after selfies using #worldsgreatestshave. You’ve done an amazing thing – now share it with the world!

Keep fundraising after you shave. People will be generous once they see your sacrifice, and you can pay-in money until June 30.

Superpower sizzle and raffle

It’s an oldie but a goodie — hold a BBQ for gold coin donation. Or ask people in your local community to donate a prize and make your own raffle.

Enjoy the rush of feel-good vibes on the day — it’s all about the extraordinary thing you’re doing to help conquer blood cancer!
