Awe­some tips and ideas to help you on your fundrais­ing mission

Kick-start your fundrais­ing by spon­sor­ing 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 spon­sor you, 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!
