Loud Shirt Day is an excuse to wear your brightest clothes and raise money to help give the gift of sound and speech to children who are deaf or hearing impaired.
The official LOUD SHIRT DAY is Friday, 20 October 2017, but you can hold a LOUD SHIRT DAY anytime of the year, knowing all funds will go to help children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Whether you fancy stripes, florals, polka dots or paisley, as long as your clothes have colour and are LOUD, it will be perfect for Loud Shirt Day.
Why not organise an event at work, school or with friends? Create a theme – Hawaiian, most hideous shirt, back to the 80’s – and get people to donate on the day

Are you keen for your child’s Kinder or School to get involved in Loud Shirt Day, but you’re not sure how?
Why not encourage your school to host a competition to design a loud t-shirt? This may inspire greater participation and encourage children to donate a gold coin upon entry.
We will enter them into our finalists’ competition, judged by our CEO Therese Kelly. Winning designers will receive 3 tickets to Base Camp Kids – Nunawading and have their design brought to life as Taralye’s Loud Shirt Day official T-Shirt during October 2017.
This is such a fun way to raise funds in support of children who are deaf or hard of hearing in our care.
