If You Want A Fun And Rewarding Activity That Supports Children In Need, This Is For You!

At Hands, we believe everyone deserves a life of choice, not chance. That's why you're able to choose your own challenge! The "Hands Hero 24 Hour Challenge" is about pushing yourself whilst raising funds and awareness for vulnerable children. 

The Goal

We have 350 children in our care, so the fundraising target is $350. This means every $1 you raise will help 1 child! If you're worried about reaching $350 don't worry. Not only is there no minimum, we have a lot of resources to help you raise more than you thought possible!

The Challenge

As an individual, you're able to choose your own challenge that spans over 24 hours. Some of the challenges also represent what it's like for these underprivileged kids in Thailand who have to go without food, shelter or family.

Don't worry if you can't decide yet, you can still register and nominate your challenge later. Also, if you have something in mind that isn't on the list, you can do that too! These are just the most popular options.

NO FOOD

No food for 24 hours straight (water allowed).

NO SLEEP

No sleep for 24 hours straight.

NO POWER

No power, internet or devices for 24 hours. 

NO SHELTER

No indoor shelter for 24 hours (camping is okay!)

NO TALKING

No speaking for 24 hours. 

WORKOUT CHALLENGE

24 hours of continuous exercise, or be in a gym for 24 hours straight.

Doing it as a group?

You don't have to do it alone! You can do it as a group with friends, colleagues or a family. Just pick the challenge you want to do as group — if you're a family with 3 young kids, the NO POWER challenge is a good one!

Getting support.

If you're worried about not raising enough, don't worry! We have all the resources you need, along with a Facebook community where you can share your challenge with others full of accountability, encouragement and celebration to get you through.
