Kids celebrate at a St. Baldrick's event

Looking for a fun and meaningful way for your school to give back to your community? Look no further.

You can help. By raising money for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you’re helping to fund the best childhood cancer research to give children with cancer long, healthy lives.

Check out these five fun ways you can help kids with cancer this school year:

1. Organize a head-shaving event

A St. Baldrick’s head-shaving event is like a party for good. Students and faculty can pledge to shave, collect donations for children’s cancer research, and then go bald in head-shaving tandem.

2. Start a coin drive

Each classroom can set up a coin jar to collect donations for kids’ cancer research, and the class who raises the most money wins.

3. Coordinate a “Casual to Conquer” day

Pick a day for students to wear a crazy hat or themed clothes to school in exchange for a donation. You could even tie this in with a school spirit day or perhaps a lesson about childhood cancer.

4. Organize a tailgate

Celebrate a big game at your school with a pre-game tailgate fundraiser. Attendees can get in on the grub in exchange for a donation.

5. Host a charity game

Ask students to challenge faculty to a friendly sports game. Encourage participants to fundraise by having friends and family members pledge a dollar amount per point, run or goal scored, or collect donations at the event.

We’re changing the world for kids with cancer. Are you in? Get started now.
