• Some happy news from that $60K we raised together! Ah, right, then. Some happy, albeit belated news, amid the coronachaos. Remember how you helped me raise $60,000 for World Bicycle Relief  and we provided TWO WHOLE VILLAGES in Africa a bunch of bikes? Well, the bikes arrived in the villages recently and they held ceremonies for the schools (the Munyati Primary School in the more
  • My reading and listening list to beat climate crisis overwhelm This dilemma might be familiar to you. You might recognise it in yourself or in someone, or others, around you. This week I had a very interesting chat with my friend Frank (not his real name) off the back of my “What can I do?” My answer to global climate crises overwhelm post. He told me, frankly, more
  • “What can I do?” My answer to global climate crises overwhelm. Right. I said I’d do this: give an answer to how we can best do something in the face of the devastating, overwhelming climate crises we are living in, particularly in Australia where the latest wildlife toll is over 1 billion. Can I be honest? I am overwhelmed, exhausted and bewildered, and have been grieving more
  • Why Australians must rage at Prime Minister ScoMo I’ve been asked to write this post by strangers and friends. But I wanted to solidify my own thoughts, too. Please note: This post has been continuously updated to 11 January 2020. I don’t want to fling outrage and insults in an unhelpful manner. And I don’t want to merely continue to share the dramatic more
  • Charity project #1 success: two African schools have $60K of bikes! I have news on the first charity project I committed to after I shut my business and decided to us the funds  working with charities where I match your donations dollar for dollar.

  • Charity project #2 success. $113,000 raised for homeless women This is what I do now. I create charity projects where I raise money, raise awareness and then kick in my cash. I think you know the gist of how and why I do it. No? You can read about it here. My second project was a series of marino wool blankets that I designed more
  • Go all the way. It’s the only good fight there is. Do you go all the way? Want to? Want to know the formula? I hand it over to Charles Bukowski and continue below…. If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. If you’re going to try, go all the way. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives, jobs and maybe even more
  • A beautiful story that just happened (the world is beautiful) Did you guys happen to see an Instagram post I ran a few weeks back of a kid in a running race stopping mid-race to comfort another competitor who was crying? The caption read, “The adults in the room are being twats. Politics is despairing. A hopeful reminder from the kids this #fridaysforfuture (please maintain the rage more
  • A how to #voteclimate guide I’m going to keep things very simple. First thing first. This is a climate election. No bones. It is vital we #voteclimate. The UN has given us less than 12 years to change. The change must be dramatic. The change must happen now. The scale of the issue is so gargantuan that governments must do more
  • My next charity project: A merino wool throw (and a big dose of #giveashit) So, here’s the background It goes like this. I closed my business, I gave my $$$ to charity and now I make up fun shit that can get us giving. I’ll be honest, though. This whole caper relies on you guys wanting to #giveashit about giving and going to the edge of our care with me. The more
