Loud Shirt Day

Let’s get LOUD!

Friday, 22 October 2021

Make some noise and get LOUD for kids with hearing loss. It’s super easy to show your support – all you need to start is a LOUD shirt!

In 2020, Loud Shirt Day supporters raised a whopping $188,841 to empower children born with hearing loss to hear and speak. This year, we’re aiming to smash the $200,000 mark for the first time ever.

Every supporter who raises over $1,000 will get a limited edition, custom-made Hear and Say LOUD shirt!

You can get LOUD in any way you like – with your family and friends, at work, in your community group or at school. The opportunities are endless! There is even the Queensland’s Loudest Town competition that sees towns across the state battle it out for the title. Your support helps give kids with hearing loss access to specialist support and the gift of speech – how awesome is that!

Please register your interest below, and you’ll receive a free fundraising toolkit to get you inspired.

Ladies Long Lunch

An afternoon of champagne, fine food and laughter

This renowned sell-out event is led by three Hear and Say mums – Lisa, Tina and Alex – who have all raised children with hearing loss and know firsthand the impact of Hear and Say’s work. Each year, hundreds of guests gather for a sensational afternoon in some of Brisbane’s top venues, raising important awareness and funds for more families in need.
