FAQs

Can I use the Dolly’s Dream logo?

To use our community supporter logo, you must have approval from Dolly’s Dream. Please email us to request this logo approval and one of our team members will be in touch.

Do I need to be over 18 years old to fundraise?

We welcome fundraisers of all ages but if you are under 18 years of age, you will need to ask your parent/guardian to help you with your chosen fundraising activity.

I can’t hold my fundraiser in May. Can I host my Do It For Dolly Day fundraiser in a different month?

While we love seeing a sea of blue and all the Do It For Dolly Day fundraising events and celebrations happening around Australia on our day in May, we appreciate that some people might not be able to hold their fundraising event or Do It For Dolly Day activity in May.

Fundraisers held outside of May will be classified as a Dolly’s Dream community fundraising activity, not as a Do It For Dolly Day fundraiser. We will of course still support your activity just as we do with all of our wonderful Dolly’s Dream community fundraisers throughout the year.

I am or know of someone who is being bullied and in need of support, can you help me?

If you or someone you know needs immediate help, call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or emergency services on 000. If you’re in need of someone to talk to you can call the Dolly’s Dream Support Line on 0488 881 033 from 6am-10pm Monday to Friday. You can also visit our Get Help page for more information on more support services that are available.

Why is my support needed?

We are so grateful and appreciative of the support from across the country to date as it has allowed us to make positive change in only a few years. You can read more about the impact of the support we’ve received here.

But we aren’t done, and we need your support so we can continue this vital work. Sadly, around one in four Australian school children are bullied each year and around one in five are cyber bullied. Approximately 45 million bullying incidents take place in Australia’s schools each year and it costs the community greatly.

Your support and donations mean that we can continue to develop and provide vital bullying prevention and online safety programs to kids, families, schools and communities across Australia. It means that we can equip our kids with the knowledge to overcome bullying and start to create a cultural shift across this country where kindness with each other and communication with our kids is the new norm.

Where does the money go?

All funds raised through Do It For Dolly Day will go towards our important anti-bullying programs, including our Dolly’s Dream Support Line, our free counselling support for anyone who needs it, as well as our online safety and anti-bullying workshops for students, parents, and teachers.  For more information on how your support can help, visit here.

Do I have to hold a fundraiser, or can I just donate towards Do It For Dolly Day?

If holding a fundraising event isn’t your thing but you would like to support Do It For Dolly Day by donating, thank you! You can make your donation here.

Can you send me free merchandise for my fundraiser?

The Dolly's Dream office doesn't keep merchandise on site. Due to the large number of fundraising events and requests for merchandise, we cannot send out merchandise for free. The Bairnsdale Horse Centre is the official merchandise supplier for Dolly's Dream, with a percentage of all sales donated to Dolly's Dream. All merchandise can be purchased via the Bairnsdale Horse Centre. Click here to place an order.

Do I need a letter of Authority to Fundraise for my Do It For Dolly Day fundraiser?

Fundraisers do not need an Authority to Fundraise Letter to hold a Do It For Dolly Day fundraiser. However, all fundraising and awareness-raising events/activities must be registered here

Do the funds raised at my fundraiser need to be banked before a specific date?

We want you to get those fundraising dollars in the bank as soon as possible – so we can put them straight to work! Please bank your funds either through your online fundraising page or our donation page here by June 30.

Can a Dolly’s Dream representative come and speak at my Do It For Dolly Day fundraising event?

Unfortunately, due to it being our busiest time of year and the large number of requests we receive, we are unable to accommodate requests for a Dolly's Dream representative to speak at community fundraising events.

Do I have to register my Do It For Dolly Day fundraiser?

Yes, all Do It For Dolly Day fundraising events/activities must be registered with Dolly’s Dream. Registering your event/activity ensures you will receive all Do It For Dolly Day updates and resources to help make your event a huge success. Register now to take part in Do It For Dolly Day.
