Lucas Jatoba’s ’30 Gifts to 30 Strangers in Sydney’
As an expression of gratitude for the ‘beautiful things that have happened’ since arriving in Australia, Lucas spent his 30th birthday passing out presents to strangers in Sydney. See 30 Gifts to 3o Strangers in Sydney. This was a follow up on Goodbye, Barcelona – a video project in Spain that it led to 7 marriage proposals! Together these videos accrued over 1 million views views and received press coverage in more than 50 countries. We love Lucas!

Tom’s Shoes ‘One For One Movement’
In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One.

Caravan of Comics
In April-May of this year, eleven Australian comic creators; variously award-winning, locally-adored and internationally-published; are touring the North-Eastern United States and Toronto, Canada. The adventure is clear – promoting their work and industry in a much more established part of the world – a part of the world very far away from where they are right now.

World Vision Vloggers
World Vision tells stories all the time – sharing about their supporters, their staff and the people they serve. Now, they have sent four professional story tellers (the vloggers), into India to visit communities at different stages in their partnership with World Vision. So while the stories will be about World Vision’s work, they’re letting go of the message and letting the vloggers tell us what they see, hear and feel. The aim? To inspire people to act, donate, and start talking about poverty with their friends and family.

GenerationOne is a movement for all Australians – Indigenous and non-Indigenous. Their goal is to bring all Australians together to end the disparity between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians in one generation – our generation. The real changes come from all Australians getting involved.
