How to Participate…

#1 How it Works – Your company selects a date between now and December 31st to encourage employees to wear jeans* to work in return for an individual donation of $5 or more to Wizards Care.

*The special work attire for the day does not have to be jeans; the company can decide at their own discretion (no ties, business casual, etc).

#2 Want to GO BIG? Some companies can choose to utilize Jeans Day to host a series of jeans days (i.e. four consecutive Mondays in October), or your company could choose to match the money the employees raise to maximize their individual donations. Fill out our Donor Form to report the amount of money raised and the number of participating employees by January 6th.

#3 Company Rewards? As a facilitator, you can help Wizards Care and your company at the same time.
