Join us for Earn Your Stripes

… our exciting and colourful new fundraiser for 2021!

Earn Your Stripes this August by choosing to wear something stripey, daring to do something more outrageous, or making and sharing your own striped creations – and raising money to help Ronald McDonald House Charities Greater Western Sydney support sick and injured children and their families through their darkest hours.


Be part of the fun and frolics!

Get involved with Earn Your Stripes this August and help us make it a huge success in its first year – an enjoyable, inspiring and uplifting experience for everyone who takes part and a target-smashing fundraiser.

The money we raise together will be used to support families staying at Ronald McDonald House, which provides a warm and supportive home-away-from-home for families with a seriously ill or injured child.

How will you Earn Your Stripes?

Wear

Get your stripes on for the day – ties, tops, hats, ribbons, the choice is yours – and make a donation. Raise $100 or more and we’ll send you a pair of our official Stripey socks so you can make a real fashion statement!

Dare

What stripey dare will you take on – or challenge someone else to do – to get sponsored and raise cash for the cause? Get the boss into a striped tutu for an important meeting, perhaps?

Share

Share the joy and feel-good with family and mates by bringing everyone together for your own stripe-themed fundraisers – think bake sales and colourful cake competitions!

Where will you get stripey?

At work

Team up with your workmates, wear stripes to work, share stripey treats during coffee breaks, dare your boss to go the extra mile – all to raise money to help sick and injured children and their families.

At school

Hold a stripey mufti day, encourage the whole school community to take on a sponsored walk, challenge the teachers to show their true colours – all to raise vital funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities GWS.

With your mates

Get out on the town together in your stripey best, take on a team challenge, hold a stripey fashion show or trivia night – and help give sick and injured children and their families the support they need through difficult times.

The difference you’ll make

Ronald McDonald House Charities GWS give seriously ill and injured children the best gift of all – their families.

Children often have to travel far from home to receive the medical care they need. Our House provides essential care and support for them and their families, only steps away from the hospital.
