Powered by Victoria's Youth Support + Advocacy Service (YSAS), febfast is the great Australian pause from alcohol or sugar, in support of young people facing serious disadvantage.
You'll give up alcohol or sugar for the month of February and raise vital funds for youth support programs across the country. We’ll give you a hand to raise as much as possible for our partner charities, each of whom are working with young people to provide long term solutions to complicated challenges. The money you raise from friends, family and colleagues will make a real difference to thousands of young people.
febfast is the great Australian pause from alcohol or sugar, in support of young people facing disadvantage.
Since 2007, febfasters have enjoyed thousands of sugar and alcohol free days, saving money, losing weight, improving energy levels, sleeping better and feeling much, much happier! In this time they’ve also supported thousands of young people across Australia faced with serious disadvantage to access the support services and resources they need. When you sign up for febfast, you’ll join a community of thousands. And, as a registered febfaster, we’ll send you exclusive recipes, meal plans, advice and of course, inspiring memes to get you through the month!
How much does it cost?
Good question! Because febfast is a fundraiser, we ask you to make a donation on signup towards our cause. This donation will support disadvantaged young people across Australia and will also give you exclusive access to resources, motivation, tips and recipes from our partners and ambassadors. The amount you donate will appear on your fundraising tracker towards your overall total.
As a signup donation you can pay $39, $57, $74, $100 or $500
Who can take part?
febfast sugar is suitable for anyone! But, if you’re taking on febfast alcohol, you’ll need to be 18+. febfast does not encourage people to increase their alcohol consumption prior to February, nor do we promote excessive drinking immediately following the campaign. If you are a heavy drinker dependent on alcohol, please speak with your GP first before signing up to febfast.
