While every day is a good day to celebrate the amazing breadth of musical talent that we have in Australia, Ausmusic T-Shirt day offers a chance to show your love, and help out some who need it.
Friday, November 16 is the day this year, set to raise funds for artists and music workers who are doing it tough financially or health-wise.
So, wear your favourite Aussie band t-shirt and show your support by donating via the Support Act Ausmusic T-Shirt Day website, where you can also share pics of you wearing your fave band t-shirt – hashtags #ausmusictshirtday, @supportact.
“The cool thing about the website is that it enables artists and music lovers to create teams so they can get their workplace, school or social media networks involved in the campaign,” says Support Act CEO Clive Miller. “It’s a really simple and fun way to raise funds for a great cause and we really hope that music fans across Australia can be our ambassadors and get their workplaces involved, and that artists can mobilise the support of their fans.”
Funds raised will help Support Act to expand its new Wellbeing Helpline, and continue to provide crisis relief to artists and music workers in need.
