#2Calls2Dads Challenge

The #2Calls2Dads challenge invites blokes to call two other dads each week and ask how they are going during the COVID-19 crisis.

This is a challenging time for many families. A friendly check-in from a mate can make a big difference.


The purpose of the call is for dads to talk about how they are going, and to share tips and strategies on how to best manage the challenges facing their families.

We challenge dads to register their commitment. In turn we will help by sending you reminders by SMS and email.
