What is Daggy Jumper Day?
Daggy Jumper Day 2016 will be announced soon. Daggy Jumper Day raises funds for Brisbane Youth Service to help support homeless young people. You can help raise funds by heading out in a jumper that has, until now, been for your eyes only.
How can I get involved?
Register your group, school, workplace or yourself, be sponsored by your friends and family or organise a daggy event and help ensure at- risk young people are warm this winter and have a bigger and brighter future.
What kind of daggy fundraiser are you?
Register as an individual and get friends, family and workmates to sponsor you for wearing your daggiest jumper to work, school or your favourite venue. Set up your sponsor page and start getting sponsors! You can help raise more funds by encouraging friends to get sponsored as well, or suggest an event at your work, school or in your local community.
At your School
Register your school and hold a gold coin event to raise funds. Encourage as many students as possible to register to wear a daggy jumper and be sponsored as well. Which will be the best School? Check out the Fact Sheets and download resources and order stickers.
With your Group
Groups can be a family, small business, local club, church group or interest group. You could even form a group amongst your friends and give it a name. Register your event today and kick things off by encouraging group members to also register and get sponsored.
Corporate teams are a great way to show off your company, help homeless young people, and have fun at the same time. Register your corporate team, hold a work event to raise funds, and get as many staff as possible to register to be sponsored as part of your corporate team.
