Go Dry this July & raise funds for people affected by cancer

June 30, 2022

It's that time of the year when Dry July starts popping up in newsfeeds everywhere. Dry July is a fundraiser that encourages you to go alcohol-free in July to raise funds for people affected by cancer. It's a great way to help people deal with serious illness, while also taking care of your own health. The first Dry July was started by 3 mates who decided to take a break from drinking. All they wanted was enough money to buy a TV for their local hospital waiting room, but they ended up raising over $250,00!

Where does the money go?

The Dry July Foundation donates to a bunch of charities and institutions to improve the lives of people affected by cancer, such as the Leukaemia foundation and the Cancer Council. Although the first Dry July aimed to raise money for a waiting room TV, these days Dry July aims a little bigger, supporting countless projects and grants around the country.

The money raised by Dry July benefits cancer patients, their families and carers through improvements to cancer centres, specialist cancer nurses, wellness programs, accommodation and transport as well as comfort and support items.

How do you benefit?

Going dry for a month might not make a big difference in the long term, but you might feel some great benefits in the short term. For one, better sleep quality leading to improved wakefulness and concentration. Cutting out all the emphy calories from alcohol helps you lose weight and get your cholesterol down too. Not to mention that the average Australian will save $1,664 a year by cutting out alcohol. Try the Dry July calculator to see how much you could save. Dry July is a great way to dip in your toes and see what cutting out alcohol can do for you.


You can sign up at Dry July. Make the commitment to go alcohol free in July, and ask friends and family to sponsor you by donating on your page. Each donation will go towards improving the lives of those affected by cancer.
