Register & Create An Event or Activity
Got a fabulous idea for a DIY Hard Hat Day event or activity at your workplace?
Register your event, set a date and a fundraising target, and you’ll get loads of planning tips and resources to get the ball rolling. Easy!
MAKE A PLAN
Where, when and how you hold your community event is up to you – Hard Hat runs all year, so you can choose the date to suit your organisation’s calendar.
Organising a raffle or auction? Reach out to your tradies and partners early for prizes. Popular choices range from gift cards, to goods and services.
Thinking outside the box? Axe throwing? Wine tasting? An office wellness day? Go for it! Hard Hat is all about showing your creative side. Make it memorable and fun.
Ask for volunteers in your community to become Charity Champions to help you organise or promote your event or activity.
Auction off a week of your leave.
Once you’ve locked in your date, time and venue of choice, send out a ‘save the date’ note to your team.
Time to get loud! Tell your workmates and friends why you’re taking part and how they can get involved. Encourage anyone who can’t make it on the day, to donate to your page online. It’s quick, easy, and tax-deductible.
Just by putting on a bake sale, raffle or site barbecue, you’re funding more beds for homeless youth through The Haven Project.
Feed your team with a pancake brekkie, barbie lunch, or arvo tea for a fixed price or a gold coin donation. Organise a raffle with irresistible prizes.
Gather your office squad for a great Aussie bake-off, book sale, or boardroom high tea. Auction off a night in a hotel, a spa treatment, or restaurant dinner for two.
BIG OR SMALL
Every activity counts – big or small. You could stage Hard Hat events across the country, or simply add a fundraising element to your regular catch-up drinks or trivia night.
