With your help, we can make BANGONABEANIE an even bigger success this year! From launch right through to Brain Injury Awareness Week (12 - 18 August), we will be promoting awareness of Acquired Brain Injury throughout Australia by asking people to – you guessed it – BANGONABEANIE!

By supporting BANGONABEANIE, you will also be helping Australia’s Brain Injury Associations raise some much needed funds to support Australian families affected by ABI. Getting involved is as easy as downloading the special Partnership Proposal below and signing a Partnership Agreement. We even have promotional packs for sponsors to help kick start things.

With your organisation on board, we are confident we can make BANGONABEANIE even bigger and better than previous years. So let’s put our heads together and see how we can help you get more bang for your promotion buck!

If you want more information, or would like to become a Partner, please contact us via

Kind regards,

Everyday Hero Fundraising

This year we have added an exciting new element to the campaign- Everyday Hero fundraising!

Now it's easier than ever to rally the support of family and friends, and make a HUGE difference to the lives of those living with ABI. Simply set up a Supporter Page, share your story, and start fundraising. You can even create or join a team to maximise your efforts.

So what are you waiting for? Check out the BANGONABEANIE Campaign site below and get fundraising!



We put our thinking beanies on and worked out a deliciously fun way to raise much needed funds during our mega BANGONABEANIE campaign.

As well as having a gas time and enjoying all that yummy tucker (don't forget the vegetarian options), you can also help raise awareness of (and $$$) a great cause: the 1.6 million Australians who are affected by Acquired Brain Injury.

Why not set up a supporter page on Everyday Hero to help spread the word amongst your mates and collect donations?

Partnership Agreement

This Agreement contains all the super serious legal information that we know you just love reading.

Luckily for you, BANGONABEANIE is so much fun, even the legal documents are exciting. The thing is, to be involved in such an amazing campaign and sell the Beanies, we really need you to fill it out.

If you are a Not-For-Profit or Charity, completing this form will entitle you to retain $2.00 per beanie you sell. This campaign is about supporting the sector as a whole... remember, we all work with someone with ABI.

Don't put it off... just download the form, sign it, and start raising some funds for people affected by Acquired Brain Injury and their families.

Partner Information

This document is designed to provide an overview of the BANGONABEANIE campaign from an operational perspective e.g. setting up the campaign, ordering, core messages.

The Partner Information should compliment the Partnership Agreement and Campaign Schedule, providing a quick reference guide to everything BANGONABEANIE related.

Order Form A - Retail

Is your street 'cred' in decline? Look no further... you can increase your reputation and raise some awareness at the same time. We have some exciting new items this year, as well as old favourites.

Oh, and on changing the colour of the Beanies... yeah they are staying blue. The point is, this campaign isn't about supporting your local football team or coordinating an outfit, this is about raising awareness and much needed funds for ABI.

Blue Beanie = Brain Injury Awareness!!

Campaign Schedule

This document is a basic schedule for the BANGONABEANIE campaign. It contains a task list, time frames and Gantt chart of the core activities for the campaign and when they need to occur.

The goal is to ensure that every Partner gets the most out of the campaign and that activities are aligned nationally.

BANGONABEANIE is about creating a vehicle to support and promote every Partner involved, because in the end we all work for the same people, the individuals affected by ABI and their family.
