COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS: DRIVING POSITIVE CHANGE

We drive positive change in the communities we live and work in, investing in sustainable futures through all of our partnerships. 

We encourage our team members to get involved, and we have a real ‘support your mates’ mentality that we love to live – and it goes wherever we do.

EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES

Our approach focuses on global healthcare, community empowerment projects and education and mentorship.

Being born in Geelong, Australia the community that surrounds us has always been really important to us. We’ve worked closely with the University Hospital, Geelong to support children’s health. And, our fundraising efforts through Run Geelong contributed to the redevelopment of their Children’s Ward, Special Care Nursery Unit, and Maternity Ward. We also partner closely with Geelong Mums, Food Relief Geelong, Northern Futures, and Life Changer Foundation to drive education and community empowerment.

Across Australia we’ve worked closely with Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer to raise much-needed funds for brain cancer research. Since 2018, we’re raised $16M AUD through the sale of exclusive beanies and caps. We’ve also worked with the AFLW since the league’s first bounce, supporting women’s empowerment through the growth of women’s footy across Australia. In 2019, bushfires devastated parts of regional Australia. And, in partnership with our team and our customers, we were proud to partner with Fire Fight Australia, and other organisations, to help get communities back on their feet.

Around the globe, we also support organisations that share our approach to making a positive difference. Our special edition Pink Shirt Day t-shirts, in partnership with the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand, aim to stamp out bullying. We’re supporting Para Los Niños in Los Angeles through their work in education and family empowerment. And, our newest partnership with The Clothing Bank in South Africa provides people with employment opportunities by empowering them to become self-employed business owners.
