The Great
Coffee Challenge

One week. No coffee.
For Make-A-Wish

Sign Up to the Challenge

This August, say 'see you later lattes' for 7 days, all in the name of a good cause

We’re challenging you to be brave, put your willpower to the test and raise money to help create life-changing wishes.

One week. No coffee.

From 9am Thursday 1 August to 9am Thursday 8 August, we suggest you and your Barista spend some time apart and you put the money you would’ve spent on coffee towards wishes.

Start the beans rolling

Sign up and share your fundraising page with family, friends and colleagues who’ll appreciate just how much of a challenge giving up your daily grind is, and ask them to donate accordingly!

Get that feel good factor

It’s better than a double shot.  At the week’s end, you’ll sit back and enjoy a cup of karma that comes from helping others and having gone coffee free.

Take on the challenge

What will it be like?

Will it be tough? Probably. Will it be worth it? Absolutely 100%.

Because you’ll be helping sick kids at the time they need it most.

But what if I slip up?  Slipping (or sipping) up is human.   

No problem. It’ll just cost you… in the form of a $20 fine (AKA donation) to your fundraising page!

Sign up

Do it as a team!

Like all good challenges, The Great Coffee Challenge is better done with company.

So why not get your morning coffee colleagues on board to fundraise together, and give each other some moral support?  

Of course, if you’re brave enough to ditch your coffee solo, that’s awesome too.

Support Make-A-Wish

Every dollar counts!

Each year, thousands of Australian kids are diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses.

To make it worse, most will be forced to go without their favourite things for months at a time during treatment. It can be scary, and tough.

This August, take on the challenge to go without your much-loved macchiato or favourite flat white for a week to support these critically ill children and their families.

Getting you through the week...

Loads of helpful resources

Lots of handy tips

Motivational support - we got you!

That feel good factor!
