PJD's support of The Great Barrier Reef Legacy Fund came about in strange fashion. The Australian rock band Midnight Oil were the catalyst for the fundraising effort that began in the summer of 2018.
Midnight Oil have always been at the forefront of fighting for social injustice and our environment. In 2017 they played a concert in Cairns, Australia to raise awareness of the plight of the Reef - the largest living organism on the planet which has been under threat due to climate change and the proposed Adani coal mine being built nearby.
PJD created a blue t-shirt utilising the band's iconic sprint hand logo and incorporated various marine life graphics within the design.
What started out as a small seed of an idea turned into a rather bigger project as over 300 'Powderworkers for the Reef' shirts were sold around the world to superfans of the band collectively known as The Powderworkers. Fans donated directly to the Legacy Fund via a dedicated page on their website and to date $12,270AD has been raised. The generosity of The Powderworkers has been amazing and we can't thank them enough for their wonderful support.
If you’d like to purchase a shirt and pledge please get in touch. Both unisex and female cut shirts are available in sizes small to 3XL. For donations please visit www.greatbarrierreeflegacy.org/powderworkers
Local girl Alice Ruggles was murdered in 2016, aged just 24, by an ex-boyfriend following a relentless campaign of stalking. Stalking is a seriously distressing and potentially life-threatening crime. This needs to be recognised by everyone. Stalking behaviour must result in immediate action both to protect the victim and to deal effectively with the perpetrator.
The Alice Ruggles Trust exists to raise awareness of stalking (including coercive control), to ensure that relevant legislation is effective and adhered to, and to bring about lasting improvements in the management of perpetrators and the protection of victims. The Trust is a member of the National Stalking Consortium.
