There’s so much good happening though that how could we stop bringing the people what they want. After all, there’s nothing like some Feel-good Friday scribble to start your weekend off the right way.

April 23rd the big push ride

‘Big Push’ Ride from Sydney to Canberra

The Fathering Project’s “BIG PUSH” bike ride is an event with one goal: celebrating and promoting what is a father’s most important role in the world, being a dad. The program works with dads to support, engage, educate, and provide practical help to build stronger relationships with their kids, leading to greater child outcomes.

Pushing off from Sydney on April 30 at 6:15 am and arriving at Parliament House Canberra on May 2 at 10:30 am. Over 3 days, 32 riders will cover 325kms to raise much-needed funds to continue their work within school communities across Australia as well as their work with “at-risk” families affected by generational fatherlessness.

“Our mission is that every child deserves to have an effective father-figure in their lives. This is why we do what we do. This ride not only raises awareness of father’s important job, but it will also assist us moving forward to help the more vulnerable groups in some regional communities across Australia.” said Sean Johns, The Fathering Project National Partnerships & Community Relations Manager.

April 23rd real men strip down for a new body positivity campaign

Real Men Strip Down for New Body Positivity Campaign

Nic Tailor has launched its body positivity campaign in an effort to highlight men who come in all shapes and sizes, encouraging them to be a little more comfortable in their skin. They have their backside covered with underwear that is custom-made to fit (not just S, M, L, or XL), as the brand became keenly aware of the need to bring attention to this when they launched their #NicTailorNoPants Campaign with Prostate Cancer Foundation. The campaign received a plethora of media attention, however, feedback from some men came pouring in that they were too embarrassed to pose in their underwear because felt they didn’t have the right body for it. The stigma is real.

In September of last year, Nic Tailor partnered with Prostate Cancer Foundation to shine a light on Prostate Cancer Awareness during the months of September, October, and into “Movember”. The brand will continue to advocate for awareness for the disease beyond that, which 1 in 9 men will be affected by in their lifetime. They subsequently launched their Dry Fly Brief for men who have battled prostate cancer, or who face issues with incontinence. The underwear looks exactly like their regular briefs, with the exception that it is equipped with moisture trapping fabric. All of their underwear is made in the USA from high-quality fabrics and superior tailoring.

Single O Rallies 77 Cafes to ‘Surrender Single Use’

Off the back of Single O’s carbon-neutral announcement, Single O has successfully rallied 77 cafes to ‘surrender single use’ for Earth Day. The move is part of their ‘No Death to Coffee’ initiative, which aims to curb the trend towards a 60% reduction in the world’s Arabica coffee supply due to climate change by 2050 (or a shortfall of 180million bags of coffee).

As part of the announcement, Single O will be rolling out a series of ‘Missions against Emissions’, as a call to arms for customers and the wider industry to collectively reduce our carbon impact through making simple swaps in our daily coffee habit.

Their first ‘Mission against Emissions’ is a ban on single-use cups across their venues on Earth Day, rallying other cafes to join in as part of a goal to remove 10,000 cups from the waste stream in a single day. As part of this first initiative, they have managed to rally 77 cafes to ‘surrender single use’ for Earth Day tomorrow (ranging from a complete ban for the day in partnership with Three Blue Ducks and Estabar to going lidless or providing additional options for reusable and loanable mugs).

Demonstrating the positive snowball effect that a grassroots initiative like this one can have – 66,900 tonnes of carbon could be saved if single-use cups were removed from Australia’s 20,000 cafes for a single year (the equivalent of removing 4,549 passenger vehicles from the road, or 2.8 million trash bags of waste recycled instead of landfilled).

April 23rd yck laneways block party

Bacardi Helps Bring Sydneysiders Back to the Bar

Family-owned Bacardi Martini Australia (BMA) is supporting the movement to bring back Sydney’s nightlife, one cocktail at a time. As a sponsor of  YCK Laneways Block Party, a six-week-long program that features 75 cultural events, across 15 venues within the Sydney City Business District (CBD).

The newly established precinct YCK spans across York, Clarence, and Kent Streets (YCK), which will see a collaboration between the city’s acclaimed small bars, with the aim of inspiring Sydneysiders to rediscover the city and inject some much-needed life back into the once-thriving CBD.

“The bar owners and staff are our extended family and it’s been a rough year for a lot of people. We’re trying to support however we can to get people back into venues. To steal from our Global Advocacy Director, Jacob Briars, we lead with the mentality of: “we sell cocktails not cases’ and YCK aligns perfectly with this.” said National Advocacy Manager for Bacardi Martini Australia, Georgina Mann.

All the bars within the YCK precinct have created bespoke and unique Bombay Sapphire or Patrón Tequila cocktails for guests to enjoy across the six-week program of cultural events and activities.
