Collaboration is at our core. War Child wouldn’t exist without its friends.

Raising money can be incredibly fun. Most importantly, it helps us to support more children affected by war. Whether that’s rocking a band tee with your work mates, leaving a legacy, or running a marathon, your passion and energy means we can reach more children and have an even greater impact.

For corporate partnerships, it means sustainable funding, expertise and exposure to new audiences. Combined, this enables planning for the future and reaching more children whose lives have been torn apart by war.

Where your money goes


Rock A Tee, Hausmann 2016
It’s time to put away your suit or uniform and dig out that moth-eaten Nirvana t-shirt. All in the name of charity.

It’s the day your boss or teacher will let you wear your favourite band t-shirt to work. What will your boss wear – Run DMC or AC/DC?

How does it work?

You wear your favourite band t-shirt to work or school and give a donation to War Child Australia. Take photos of you and your colleagues in your Cold Chisel/Madonna t-shirts and we will share them with our Facebook and Twitter followers. Use the hashtag #wearitforwarchild to grab our attention!

We love to hear what our fundraisers are up to so make sure to email We can provide you with fundraising materials and support you along your fundraising journey


After you’ve provided for your loved ones, would you consider leaving a gift for War Child in your will?

Our vision is a world where children’s lives are no longer torn apart by war. Our work won’t stop until every community, every family, every child is protected from the devastating effects of violent conflict.

It’s not a quick-fix solution—that’s why gifts in wills are so crucial to our work, and so valued.

Gifts in wills help make sure that our life-changing work will continue making a difference for generations to come, so more children can have a safer, happier, brighter future.

We understand and respect that your decisions about your will are private, personal and made after long, careful consideration.

But if a leaving a gift in your will to War Child is something you might be interested in, we’d be more than happy to discuss it with you.

Where your money goes

War can flair up quickly. The trauma that children are exposed to in the short term can take a lifetime to recover from.

Much of the negative impact on children can be prevented if protection systems are developed quickly enough. Responding rapidly is vital.

Your donation ensures we can mobilize immediately when conflict hits, minimizing the damage on children in war zones. Already this year, War Child Australia has supported the below country programmes:

Children in Central African Republic


Since 2016, violent clashes and inter-communal tensions fuelled by armed groups have continuously increased. War Child’s work in CAR focuses on child protection, advocacy, and demobilisation and reintegration of children associated with armed groups. A donation from War Child Australia went towards this forgotten crisis supporting War Child’s vital work in one of the world’s poorest country.
