The BDO team will send you posters and emails, including your company’s unique code, to promote the initiative around the workplace.


Step 2

You and your co-workers buy online raffle tickets to go into the draw to win the days off your company has offered up. You do this using your unique company code.

Tickets are $5 each and all money raised goes to help the 15,000+ Australians with a spinal cord injury.

About the Big Day Off

The Big Day Off brings businesses and employees together to raise funds for people with spinal cord injury. It’s a fun way to engage and reward employees, by offering them the chance to win a paid day off work. Businesses register and offer a day or multiple days of paid leave to be won in an online raffle. Staff then buy online raffle tickets to enter the draw to win a Big Day Off from their workplace.
