  • For orders placed between 1 May and 15 May, payment will be due on 15 June 2022
  • For orders placed after 16 May, payment will be due on 30 June 2022

When are the proceeds from my beanie sales due to FightMND?

If you wish, you can pay for your beanies by credit card upfront when you order them. Alternatively, if you prefer, we can invoice you. Payment is due as per the following schedule:

  • For orders placed between 1 May and 15 May, payment will be due on 15 June 2022
  • For orders placed after 16 May, payment will be due on 30 June 2022

If your event is scheduled for after 30 June, please contact us at [email protected] to make alternative arrangements.

Can I pay by credit card upfront?

When you place your order you will have the option to pay for your full order of beanies upfront. Alternatively you can pay a $10 deposit by credit card and request to pay the balance by invoice.

What happens if I don't pay my invoice on time?

If your invoice is not paid by the due date, we will charge the credit card on file for the outstanding amount (we will send an email to remind you that your invoice is due).

If your event is after the date your invoice is due, please contact us at [email protected] to make alternative arrangements.

Where can I sell the beanies?

You may want to sell the beanies at school, at your sporting club, in your office or in your community. Please just make sure you receive any required approvals (eg. from your principal or your boss) prior to ordering.

Can I sell the beanies in my shop or at my business?

We would be delighted for you to sell through your local independent business, club or school. However, because of FightMND’s valuable and long-term partnerships with Coles, Coles Express and Bunnings, these businesses have exclusive rights to fundraise on our behalf within the supermarket, grocery, national pharmacy and hardware categories. Therefore, we are unable to undertake an active partnership or fundraising efforts with any other supermarket or grocery chain, national branded pharmacy chain or hardware store.

If you have any questions about eligibility, please email [email protected]

What is the shipping cost for beanies on consigment?

We charge a flat fee of $19 to ship the beanies to you. By helping us cover shipping costs we can ensure that we maximise funds raised and reach a cure sooner.

Am I still responsible for payment if I give the beanies to someone else to sell?

If you order beanies from FightMND, an arrangement exists between you and FightMND and it remains your responsibility for payment, even if you pass the beanies onto someone else to sell.

Is there a minimum number of beanies I can order on consignment?

To order on consignment, you need to place an order for a minimum of 50 beanies. If you would like to order a smaller number for resale, you will be able to do so via our online store (launching 11 May).

Is there a cut-off date that I can't sell beanies after?

The Big Freeze campaign runs for approximately six weeks. You can sell your beanies outside of the campaign (which officially ends 21 June 2022), however you are likely to find it is easier to sell them during the official Big Freeze campaign period.

What percentage of the beanie price goes to FightMND?

100% of the proceeds received through beanie sales goes directly to FightMND.

Can I also sell Sockit2MND socks?

We’d love you to also sell our socks within your community. For more information, and to place your order, please visit Sockit2MND.

Do you provide any fundraising support or resources?

You will find a whole lot of other fundraising support at our DIY Big Freeze website.

Do I receive any rewards or payment for selling beanies?

Your reward for selling the beanies is contributing to funding for research to beat the Beast. We hope that makes you feel pretty good!

How long will it take for the beanies to get to me?

Orders placed before 10 May will be shipped from that day (our launch date is 11 May).

Orders placed after 10 May will be dispatched within 1-2 days of receiving your order. After that, they will enter the Australia Post system and you will be able to track their delivery progress via the tracking number emailed to you. All beanies are shipped from metropolitan Melbourne.

What if I need more beanies?

If you wish to order more beanies, please resubmit a new request via the form above.

What if my fundraising event is cancelled?

If your event is cancelled and you are unable to sell beanies, please ensure you return them to us by Friday 10 June 2022. If your event is scheduled for after 10 June, please contact [email protected] to make alternative return arrangements as soon as possible.

Can I return any unsold beanies?

Unsold beanies returned to FightMND before Friday 10 June will be fully refunded. (We have limited opportunity to distribute and sell beanies through our network after the Big Freeze on Monday, 13 June 2022.)

Please contact us to make alternative arrangements if you are unable to return beanies before 10 June, 2022.

Is it possible to return unsold beanies after 10 June?

Our goal is to sell out of beanies so that we can raise as much as possible to beat ‘the Beast’. Any beanies that are returned after the Big Freeze event takes place at the MCG on Monday 13 June cannot be distributed through our regular sales channels are a likely to remain unsold, limiting the amount we can raise.

Please contact us at [email protected] if you will need to return beanies after 10 June, 2022.

Do I pay for postage to return unsold beanies?

It is our goal to maximise the funds that are invested in MND research and we kindly request that you cover the postage cost of any unsold beanies that are returned to us. Alternatively, you can return them in person to our office in Melbourne. Please contact [email protected] if you wish to return your beanies in person.
