brave souls letting it rip


raised so far for families facing childhood cancer

How it works

Join the club

Sign up today and challenge your friends and/or workmates to get involved too – the more the merrier!

Spread the word

Let everyone know you’ll be letting it rip this October and ask family, friends and workmates to sponsor you.

Wax the hair

Grit those teeth and wax it off - just five seconds of ouch! to support families facing childhood cancer.

Let it rip and take on the Redkite waxing challenge!

Will you take on the challenge of waxing part (or all!) of your body this October to help families face the challenge of childhood cancer?

Get friends and family to sponsor you for your hairoic feat - and perhaps even assist or witness the big moment with cameras to hand?

Or why not challenge your mates or colleagues to take part as a team, choose their spot (chest, leg, arm, eyebrow, beard, head?) and wax as one!

No pain, no gain! This is a challenge that’s really raw, but really, really worth it. Every patch of your new smooth bod will make a difference to families facing childhood cancer.

What you'll get

Free starter kit

You'll receive a free pack of five wax strips and a fun You Little Ripper tattoo sheet when you sign up.


Rewards and prizes

You'll earn some exclusive rewards as your fundraising total grows – plus you'll qualify for entry into our prize draws to win some fabulous VITAMAN products.


Ripping resources

You'll be able to choose from a range of downloadables to support your challenge, including posters and some colourful social graphics to share.

“Because thank you isn’t enough.”

Nathan and Naomi’s son, Ollie, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer at the age of just six. Since then, the family’s life has been turned upside down - they’ve had to drop everything and relocate close to Westmead Hospital in Sydney and they’ve had to witness their son enduring intensive treatment, including two rounds of chemotherapy.

Redkite have been there for the family throughout all the stress and anxiety - providing practical, day-to-day support, connecting them with other services, and offering them specialist counselling. 

Nathan says, “The support Redkite provides to us is life-saving. That’s why I want to be part of You Little Ripper, and help Redkite support other families like mine. Because thank you isn’t enough.”


A big shout-out to everyone letting it rip this October and fundraising to support families facing childhood cancer.
