Loud Shirt Day banner

Loud Shirt Day is Friday, 2oth October 2023!

Loud Shirt Day is the perfect excuse to be BOLD and BRIGHT by wearing it LOUD and raising funds in support of children with hearing loss.

By wearing it LOUD and raising funds, you’ll make a true difference to children with hearing loss in WA by helping them access vital early intervention programs and services – giving them the same opportunities as their siblings and peers. How awesome is that!

In 2023, the official date for Loud Shirt Day is Friday, the 20th of October, but you can host your event whenever suits you best.

Wear it LOUD in any way you like – as a family, at work, with your friends and community group or at school, the opportunities are endless and easy!
