The BIG WIG challenge

The Big Wig challenge is an audacious way for schools, businesses, and community groups to get behind Wig Wednesday and amplify their fundraising. It’s an easy concept:

  1. Set a fundraising target
  2. Nominate a “BIG WIG” (want to see the boss or principal in a wig? Make it happen!)
  3. Create your BIG WIG fundraising page (via link below)
  4. Kick off your challenge by sharing your fundraising page far and wide with your colleagues, friends and families. Ask them to help hit your fundraising target by making a donation through your BIG WIG challenge page.
  5. When you hit that magic number your “BIG WIG” must complete the challenge – by wearing a wig of your choice, or lopping off their locks!

Don’t forget to take photo’s of your “BIG WIG” to include in your next internal update and let everyone know how much your aiming to raise, and the difference it will make to the lives of children with cancer and their families.

On Wednesday 17 June, join in on all the Wig Wednesday fun. Post your Wig Wednesday pics to your Social Media channels and check out the Child Cancer Foundations Facebook and Instagram feeds. Don’t forget to use the hash tags #wigwednesday, #bigwigchallenge and tag us @childcancerfoundation.
