Seven steps to hosting a virtual Pirate Day

Arrr’ you shipshape and ready for your virtual fundraiser? Follow these steps and you can enjoy Pirate Day without leaving the comfort of your own cabin while raising much-needed funds for kids’ with brain cancer. Schools and Early Learning Centres can share these tips with students, parents and caregivers for a fundraiser the whole family and community can be part of.

1. X marks the spot

We are setting sail on Friday 22 May, but you can choose any date that works best for you. Mark it on your calendar and be sure to register here .

2. Stay connected

Join our online community via the Pirate Day Facebook Event. Here you’ll be able to stay up-to-date with any Pirate Day developments, share ideas and photos, and easily invite your friends to take part too!

3. Involve your crew (virtually!)

Start fundraising by creating an Everydayhero page and then share it with family and friends using social media and email. Ask for treasure to support the cause and who knows, maybe they’ll join you by dressing up on Pirate Day too!

4. Yo-ho-ho it’s time to decorate

Download and print out our Jolly Roger decorations to create the pirate vibe at your place. You’ll find eye patches and hats too so  you can ditch landlubber looks for your buccaneer best.

5. Prepare to have a fun-filled day

We’ve cooked up activities suitable for the young and young at heart. You can also bake pirate inspired treats – chocolate cannon balls anyone? Organise a treasure hunt around the house, or relax with some colouring in or pirate ship origami.

6. Weigh anchor – it’s Pirate Day!

Show us how you’re making kids’ brain cancer walk the plank by sharing photos and videos on social media with #pirateday2020.

7. Bank your booty!

If you received any cash donations, add them to your Everydayhero page or bank online.
