ChildFund’s Big Ask

What is ChildFund’s Big Ask?

ChildFund’s Big Ask is Australia’s biggest trivia challenge to educate children around the world!

ChildFund Australia is calling on all Australians to host a trivia event and raise money to help educate children living in some of the world’s poorest communities. ChildFund’s Big Ask is a great excuse to get together with friends, family and colleagues to have fun for a great cause.

Through ChildFund’s Big Ask you make a big difference to children living in the poorest parts of the world. The money you raise from your trivia event will support ChildFund’s education programs to help fight global child poverty.

Hosting a trivia event for ChildFund’s Big Ask is easy. You’ll get everything you need to make it a great success – from steps to planning your event to the all-important questions and your own web page to collect donations!
