Feel-Good Friday: February 19 – Whoppers and Show-Stoppers

It’s been a big couple of days for Australian publishers. after a breakdown in discussions with the government, Facebook made the monster decision to restrict Australian publishers from posting news content on its platform, an avenue where Aussies consume roughly 30-40 per cent of their news. The widespread impacts are still be determined, but if there’s one certainty, it’s that you should continue to support the Aussie publishing industry. If there’s an Aussie publication you love and read, whether it be Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Vogue, or anything else that tickles your fancy, show them you care by subscribing to their newsletter.

In the meantime, let’s get in a little feel-good Friday vibe to take the mind off things. While Aussies saw the re-invented version of Nick Kyrgios bow-out of the Aussie Open, we’ve still been able to back fellow Aussie legend Dylan Alcott who just scored his seventh Australian Open, and is featured down below! Let’s get into it.

Feb 19th Pure Scot and Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef

Pure Scot and Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef Will Raise $100,000

Conservation organisation Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef (Citizens) has announced the next stage of its ground-breaking Great Reef Census project. The project mobilised citizen scientists to survey as much of the Reef as possible throughout late 2020. Project Great Reef Census is designed to fill critical gaps in our knowledge of the over 3,000 individual reefs that make up the Great Barrier Reef, helping to support research and conservation on Australia’s greatest natural wonder.

In 2021, Australian-owned Scotch Whisky Pure Scot aims to raise $100,000 to support the conservation organisation to map a further 100 reefs as a part of its ongoing commitment to championing environmental initiatives close to home. As part of the $100k for 100 Reefs campaign, Australians in QLD, NSW and WA will be able to donate their 10-cent return on any eligible container directly to Citizens. Pure Scot will match it by donating 10 cents from every one of its canned cocktails sold around the world until June.

Campos Says Kindness is Key to Reconnecting in 2021 with Free Coffee

As restrictions around the country start to ease, Campos is trying to pick up from where the old normal left off. new research has revealed 1 in 3 Australians believe kindness is key to helping us feel connected once again. It would seem local coffee cafes and shops have been at the centre of these many unifying moments. According to the Campos Coffee Group findings, 3 in 4 Aussies (78 per cent) are happy to shout someone a coffee, just because, and more than a quarter (27 per cent) have even done so for a total stranger.

Last Wednesday was Random Acts of Kindness Day, and Campos Cafes around the country gave away free coffees for Aussies to use as a kind treat for themselves or someone else. Campos Coffee Founder, Will Young, is a big believer that kindness and a daily cup of positivity can help spark meaningful connections.

“Over the past 19 years, Campos has grown into one of the most loved coffee brands in Australia, serving over 10 million Aussies a year. Our success comes down to the kind support our café partners receive from their local communities and the many meaningful connections they forge there. Randomly giving away 70,000 free coffees on Random Acts of Kindness Day was not only our Campos Café way of saying a big thank you, it’s also our ambition to continue fuelling this kindness and connection. Ultimately our goal is to bring us all back together again after a year that’s felt overwhelmingly disconnected,” said Young.
