Can I use my bandanna as a face mask?

We love your creative thinking and certainly agree that bandannas are super versatile! Buying a bandanna now is more important than ever – it helps us provide online support services for young people affected by cancer who are even more isolated at the moment.

If you’re thinking of using one of our bandannas as a face mask, please be aware they don’t offer full protection from airborne viruses. However, they are a good back up option if you can’t get a certified face mask.

The Chief Health Officer of Victoria recommends a cloth mask made of three layers of a mix of breathable fabrics to ensure adequate protection, however any face mask or covering is better than none.

You can read the Federal Government stance on face masks here. For VIC specific advice on appropriate face coverings, please see here.

Can I fundraise for National Bandanna Day?

We'd love for you to host a fundraiser for National Bandanna Day. For more information click here.

When is National Bandanna Day?

National Bandanna Day is held on the last Friday of October each year. This year's event is on Friday 30th October 2020.

I don't have a credit card or Paypal, can I pay by another method?

If you're unable to pay via our website, please email us at nbd@canteen.org.au or call our team on 1800 226 833.

Where are the face masks produced?

Our face masks are made in the EU by an Australian owned and operated company. Costs are kept to a minimum so we can direct more resources to supporting young people affected by cancer.
