Key Information for Plungers

  • Please collect pledges of cash and cheques from friends, relatives and/or co-workers – they will be happy to sponsor your jump into the river for a great cause! You can circulate the hardcopy pledge form and/or gather donations online.
  • Pledge sheets can be downloaded here or hard copies picked up at The Table (190 Gore St. E), Barnabe's Indpendent, the Perth Library, or the Legion. 
  • Donations can be made online using credit card or Paypal and can be directed to your individual and team total amounts.
  • There is a minimum pledge total of $25 for each plunger.  Keep all cheques and money collected and pledge sheets safe in a large envelope and hand them in when you register for the plunge on January 1st. If you are collecting large amounts of cash or cheques and would like to drop off some before the plunge that can be arranged (way to go!).
  • Don’t forget that Plungers eat free at our delicious breakfast in the Legion. All others are welcome to eat for a modest fee.
  • Wear some sort of footwear and avoid clothing that will soak up water for when you plunge (less is more). Bring warm and dry clothes to change into.
  • We welcome teams of plungers and can have up to 4 people plunging at one time
  • HAVE FUN! Wear a costume, bring a friend.
  • We put togher these 7 hot tips to help with your efforts.
  • T-shirts will be given to individuals raising over $200. We will enter your name in a special draw if you raise over $500. An additional draw entry will be made for each additional $500 raised.
