Weekend Without Words

Your silence will show those with MND they are not alone

You can make a difference today by signing up and using free text to speech apps for an entire weekend and raising vital funds for Queenslanders with MND. 

When MND affects speech, conversations are likely to take longer and feel tiring. Participating in this campaign gives a little insight into what 9 out of 10 people with MND face as their speech starts to decline.

It's free to sign up and you can choose when to do your 48 hour challenge, plus win some great prizes!

Rally up your school friends, sporting clubs, colleagues and friends to register with you as a team and maximise your impact. 

MND Fast Facts:
  • More than 80% of people with MND experience slurred, unclear, quiet or complete loss of speech
  • Everyday in Australia, 2 people are diagnosed with MND, and 2 people die from MND
  • The average life expectancy for MND is 27 months
  • There is no cure or effective treatment for MND

Why you should take on the challenge:

Get an exclusive Popsocket!

Once you get your first donation, you will receive your own popsocket to make the challenge more comfortable.

Nominate other schools!

Challenge your brother/sister school - who will have the most students doing the challenge and raise the most funds?

Earn "talk passes"

When you hit fundraising milestones, as a reward you can earn “talk passes” which allow you to communicate (not for long!) during your challenge.

Win your school a pizza party!

If your school raises the most amount of money, we’ll organise a pizza party for all of the students who fundraised!



We're here to help!

Once you've signed up, you'll get an email with app suggestions and fundraising resources to help you spread the word about your challenge.
