Let's Get Started
Keep It Simple
The day is all about dressing up and having fun while making a difference to the lives of Childhood Cancer families.
Talk Like a Pirate Day™ is a great fundraising event for schools, childcare centres, community groups, workplaces and individuals.
We leave how you want to enjoy the day entirely up to you, and give you some handy fundraising ideas to get you started.
We'll add new fundraising ideas and fun on the day activities regularly so check the resources section for the latest fundraising and promotional tools.
Let's get started!
Sign Up and start a Team
Gather your crew
Invite your crew members to join your team. Remember more team members means more FUN!
Our most powerful Pirates kick start their fundraising by donating to themselves! Your friends and family are more likely to donate to your cause if they can see you are committed.
Share your personal or team fundraising page through social media asking them to donate towards your fundraising efforts. Make sure you share it regularly as we are all busy these days and we usually need a couple of reminders.
Place a notice in the school, work or sporting newsletter.
Make posters for your event using our Poster Templates or make your own using the Logos in our Resources section.
Plan your in house fundraising activities
Check out our Fundraising Ideas Booklet for lots of fun ideas to help you to fill your treasure chest.
