Get out and about. Make a difference.
 Be part of the Red Ribbon volunteer team.

A big part of what makes the Red Ribbon Appeal so fun are our awesome volunteers. For years, our Red Ribbon volunteers have proudly taken to the streets, train stations, theatre foyers and community hubs of Sydney and regional NSW to sell red ribbon merchandise and collect donations for World AIDS Day. We are so grateful for the contribution of our volunteers!

In 2023, there will be volunteer opportunities to sell red ribbons and shake buckets.

Selling red ribbons at Sydney CBD train stations

Each year, Red Ribbon volunteers sell red ribbon merchandise at key train stations in the CBD. This year, we are needing volunteers for Thursday 30 November and Friday 1 December, 6.30am - 9.30am, at Wynyard, Town Hall and Central Stations.

Bucket collections at Sydney theatres

Each year, Red Ribbon volunteers collect donations by shaking buckets at Sydney's leading theatres and productions. Tentative dates are between Friday 24 November to Saturday 23 December.

Times will vary but most shifts will most likely be in the evening around 10.30pm when performances finish. Dates, time and productions are TBA.
