The Big Day Off 2016

Score a paid day off work and support Australians with spinal cord injuries.

Businesses: Register

Let’s face it, as business leaders we deal with planned and unplanned absence every day. Signing your business up for the Big Day Off is a great way to reward your staff and give back to your community.

Employees: Buy Tickets

Join your team for a chance to win an extra day off work to do whatever you want. Tickets are just $5 each and the more you buy, the more chances you have to win!. The best part is, you’ll be helping raise money for spinal injury research and care.

How does the Big Day Off work?

BDO-Step1

Step 1

Register Your Business
Nominate A Boss

The boss registers online and chooses how many days off they will be giving away.

They’ll be given a unique code you’ll need for step 2.

Your manager will also be emailed posters with your code to print out and put up around your workplace.

BDO-Step2

Step 2

Buy Tickets

You and people you work with buy online raffle tickets to win the days off that your manager has put up. You do this using the unique code your manager was given.

Tickets are $5 each and all money raised goes to help the 10 000+ Australians with a spinal injury.

BDO-Step3

Step 3

On July 1st, you’ll get an email letting you know if you’re a Big Day Off winner.

If you’ve won, have a chat to your manager and work out when you’ll take your Big Day Off.

If you didn’t win, you still managed to support those living with spinal injuries. Well done!

    Congratulations to the AFL for selling over 100 tickets already in the Big Day Off drawn! With one week to go, our Big Day off intern Susan encourages all staff to get behind this initiative raising vital funds for people with spinal cord injury. "My spinal cord injury happened during my birth when I had a freak stroke. There was nothing my mother nor father could have done to prevent it and I’ve gone from callipers and walking sticks to a wheelchair full time (for the better). It has been a mountain to climb, but for many people their spinal cord injuries happen during traumatic accidents, and their world gets turned upside down very, very quickly."
