against women and children
Be part of the change!

... everyone, including yourself, to practice being caring, vulnerable and emotionally expressive.
HOLD AN EVENT
To bring people together, learn about gender stereotypes, and fundraise for White Ribbon Australia.
Host a White Ribbon Day Event!
When we work together, we progress towards an Australia that we want to see.
Bring together your friends, family, colleagues, clubs and local community to help make change by participating and donating this White Ribbon Day.
Check out our A to Z event list ideas to get started and follow these simple steps to host a White Ribbon Day Event:
1. Register and plan your event
Register your event and customise your fundraising page. We encourage you to get creative and think outside the box. Some ideas include a morning tea, BBQ, sporting event or even a games night.
2. Be the perfect host
We will send you a host kit with some promotional items and we encourage you to take a look at our downloadable range online along with our online resource hub, which is full of ideas on how to make positive changes.
3. Order your merchandise
Take a look at our online store and order your favourite merchandise to for White Ribbon Day. By wearing a White Ribbon you are showing you want to be part of the change.
The most simple way to ask people for donations is to ask them to donate directly to your page. If you receive any cash donations, simple add them in and send receipts. After your event is complete, White Ribbon Australia will automatically receive any money you raised.
Get a limited-edition WRA Pack
The first 100 fundraisers to raise $500 for White Ribbon Day, will receive a free pair of limited-edition White Ribbon Australia socks and an enamel pin.

White Ribbon Day is your opportunity to bring people together – in person or online - to raise awareness and commit to action to prevent men’s violence against women.
White Ribbon Day events - whether a march, a morning tea, wearing a ribbon to work or a virtual gathering – are about more than talking about these issues - it’s a call to action, with resources to take into our everyday lives, communities and workplaces so that we can all keep making change towards women’s safety all throughout the year.
We asked you to put the elimination of violence against women firmly on the agenda in your community by organising a White Ribbon event and invite people to join you in ongoing action.
