SEA MERCY CHARITY- DRIFTA HEXA TARPS
G’day fellow Drifta fans. Well the wheels are turning. This has been in the pipeline since I attended the DFCE at Gloucester in May 2018 and saw Luke’s great idea on the Sea Mercy Hexa Tarp.
Thanks to all the legends that watch my channel, I have saved up enough money from the google ads to purchase 400 Mrbuckaroonie stubby coolers and stickers. I originally got 100 to give away to family and close friends. They are gone and lots of people still want one. (I haven’t forgotten you Darryl and Maria).
I placed the order this morning with the mob up in Cairns. When they arrive I am getting them shipped to Drifta. If I can sell all 400 coolers/stickers at $10, I will make enough profit to purchase 2x complete Hexa tarps for Sea Mercy. Sea Mercy will use these tarps somewhere in the South Pacific to provide shelter and fresh drinking water for a village that has been devastated by a natural disaster.
For every $10, $4 will come back to me to cover some of the cost and $6 will go to charity. If all 400 sell quickly, maybe we can strive to sell another 400 and get another two Sea Mercy tarps.
This is a fantastic charity folks. Something I am passionate about and I know Luke is excited about it too. Maybe if we as a group can get the ball rolling, other youtube channels/ companies can follow suit.
From day one I have stated that my youtube channel is a hobby and not a business like some people think it is. I have been given some great stuff from Drifta in the past and this is my chance to give something back. What better way than to a great charity like Sea Mercy.
The coolers are good quality wetsuit material type ones. The stickers are made from vinyl so will not fade in the sun. $10 will get you a cooler and sticker. I am intending to send 200 to Tofty in Brissy and 200 to Luke in Gloucester. Brissy folk will be able to go in and buy them direct. Others can maybe order a couple when they buy something else from Drifta online. It is not viable for me to sell them direct due to the price of postage.
I will be getting some also for competition giveaways etc. Hopefully in a month or so. I will let you know when they are ready to go.
