Beard Season – Beards for the bush


Use of funds

$25,000 Tipping point goal

$25,000 let's us lock in three regional skin check events.
Depending on where we'll go, this will cover:

  • Contracting the specialist(s)
  • Flights (or fuel for the Flying Skin Doctor)
  • Equipment / educational material
  • Transportation of our skin check tent
  • Dispatch costs for biopsies
  • Management & co-ordination costs
  • Staff, provisions and incidentals

The more funds we raise, the more days we can stay at each site, and the more people we'll be able to check. Ideally, we could schedule this in with a corporate skin check in the area, offsetting costs for the charity while benefiting employees AND the local community.

One specialist, per day, can check approximately 50 people.
So this goal will get us to 150 people.

People in the country who are a lot more risk than your average Aussie.
People who might never have had the chance to have a skin check before this project...

$50,000 Stretch goal

This will let us tee up six remote skin check sessions.
Or double (if not triple) the amount of people we check on our original sessions.

HAVE A SQUIZ

YES!! You've just covered the cost for a specialist to check one champion from the country. So they can "Have a squiz" for some suss looking spots. As a token of our appreciation, we'll send you something beasts wear on their ears - which you can use as a key fob. A custom branded symbol of a life you might have helped us save.

Which goes to show we don't do things by halves.

A COO WEE

You beauty!! You've helped us check a few lucky legends. Something we want to thank you personally for. So... one of our ambassadors - from the bush - will record a message and give you a shout out - which we'll post to over 80 thousand people on our social media channels. Make sure you give us your handle/profile name so you see it. And if you want us to say something special just let us know. We owe you one...

CAMEL TIME

Go you good thing... did you know, one of our ambassadors is currently trekking across the country with three camels, passing through some of the towns we're looking to check? Well, thanks to your super generous donation, you could meet this lovely bloke and have a bit of one on one with these glorious animals. We can't promise a camel ride, but you will learn a thing or two. You'll have to make your own way to wherever we'll be, but we can assure you it'll be worth it. An experience you'll never forget.

THE WHOLE BOX AND DICE

MATE!! This will score you sponsorship rights for one rural skin check session. You can put your logo on all our comms, up at our skincheck tent, our shirts, hats whatever you like - within reason. Or you could just say you did that... You made it happen. We'll send you photos and a video wrap up to share with all your friends and clients. As well as a bit a report about how many people we checked and how many lives you might have helped save. How's that for 'return on investment'...

LET’S MAKE A WEEKEND OF IT

Right... you’re not messing around.
This will sort us out for two days and then some, which you should probably definitely join us for. For this kind of dosh we’ll roll out the red carpet/freshly linen’d swag (with mosquito net). Sorting you out with a full kit of merch, naming rights and hopefully some PR. Plus all the back pats from the hundred plus people you helped to get a skin check. Solid solid form by you...
