Need a great excuse to have a beer? How about a beer that will help save our Great Barrier Reef

TheGoodBeerCoA new craft beer company has launched in Australia.  It is called The Good Beer Co.  and what they are doing is not just good, it is GREAT! Their mission is simple. Produce Good Beer that does good.

The Good Beer Co. is set to shake up Australia’s $4 billion beer industry by brewing beers that help support uniquely Australian causes.

Founder of the social enterprise “The Good Beer Co.”, James Grugeon, said he wanted an easy way for Australians to support worthy causes. James has partnered with Bargara Brewing Company, in Bundaberg to produce the beer, and has pledged half of the profits of every beer sold, to charity.

“Australia is one of the most beer-loving nations on earth. Yet our beer-drinking dollars go largely to for-profit, multinational companies,” Mr Grugeon said. “This money could be going to good causes right here in Australia, and what better way to raise money for a good cause than to ask people to have a beer for it.”

The Good Beer Co. has launched a crowd-funding campaign for the production of its first drop, Great Barrier Beer, which will see at least 50 per cent of profits go to the Australian Marine Conservation Society.

Australian Marine Conservation Society CEO, Darren Kindleysides, said the organisation was thrilled to be a founding partner and the first charity beneficiary of The Good Beer Co. and hoped to see Australians join the movement to drink beer that does good.

“As a passionate environmentalist and a craft beer fan myself, this is an exciting venture. It’s such a refreshingly innovative way to raise much-needed awareness and funds for the protection of our Reef,” Mr Kindleysides said.

AMCS The Australian Marine Conservation Society have been working to protect Australia’s ocean wildlife, including Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef since 1965. It is a Queensland success story, founded by a group of marine scientists and avid bushwalkers from the University of Queensland and the CSIRO, sitting under the stars one night on a camping trip at Carnarvon Gorge. Since that day, they have accrued an impressive list of achievements including preventing mining on the Great Barrier Reef, global ban on commercial whaling, and saving Ningaloo Reef to name a few. Read more about them here.

Sneakers for Samoa appeal November 2015

I would like to introduce you to my friend Anna, who is running a collection for second hand sports shoes and equipment for people in Samoa – please read on and give generously!  Learn more about the project on the Sneakers for Samoa facebook page.

SneakersSamoaKnown as the land of ‘happy people’ Samoa is one of Australia’s closest neighbours. Alarmingly it is also the 5th most obese country in the world with 70% of Samoan people considered overweight. With limited arable land, processed food is the staple of most people’s diets while poor infrastructure, cultural norms and lack of programs prevents many from ‘getting physical’. 

In an effort to support people of all ages to get active, two local triathlon clubs have recently formed. The clubs are already seeing some great results with four locals already completing a gruelling IRONMAN distance triathlon and countless more competing in the local running and swimming races. 

While energy levels are high, the clubs are limited by lack of training equipment. Which is where my friend Ray comes in. Ray is one of the world’s gentle giants. Born and raised in Samoa, he took up triathlon when he arrived in Australia and completely fell in love with the sport. He is passionate about supporting others to share his love and so for the past two years has been collecting used equipment and sending it back to his homeland all at his own expense. 

This November we launched ‘Sneakers for Samoa’ and we’re asking people to donate their old sneakers, training clothes, swimming or cycling gear so we can send it directly to Samoa. Our ship leaves on the 15th November, so we just have a few days left. While we’re not particularly fussy, we ask that all kit is clean and in reasonable condition. 

To arrange pick up or drop off of donations in the Brisbane area please contact Anna on

Your second or third pair of sneakers would mean a lot to people like 14 year old Ronnie who recently completed his first 10km race….in socks.

Thank you for your generous support!

Paying It Forward dinner Brisbane – Wednesday 11th November 2015

Chef Minh Le understands what it’s like to struggle. In 1979, Le arrived with his family from a war-ravaged Vietnam and settled in Cabramatta, where he says, life was tough.

“My parents had to struggle really hard to provide for us in those early days. They both worked long hours while I looked after my younger brother and sister.”

In his early twenties, Le fell in with a bad crowd, got involved in drugs and did a stint in prison.

 “Sometime in life we don’t make all the right choices. I lived a hard life when I was young and did things that I wasn’t so proud of but I was incredibly fortunate to meet people in my life who were willing to give me a chance and with their help I was able to turn my life around.”

Now Le, owner of the successful The Foraging Quail restaurant in New Farm wants to repay some of that fortune by helping others.

On Wednesday, November 11, The Foraging Quail is hosting a dinner, with all profits being donated to the group Hospitality with Heart to facilitate a Christmas Eve dinner for disadvantaged families in Logan.  Guests to the all-the-frills Christmas dinner are struggling families, victims of domestic abuse, children, the homeless and refugees and Le will be one of the chefs on the burners for the evening.

“I still look back at where I have come from to where I am today and feel so blessed. I just want to give back to people who have had misfortune and just need a smile and some hope to brighten up their day a little,” Le says.

© Smudge PublishingThe 7 course Paying it Forward dinner menu includes Spanish mackerel crudo, pork jowl with apple, celeriac and truffle popcorn, saltbush lamb belly and Le’s renowned ‘Nine textures of chocolate, peanut butter log and moss.’  Six courses are matched with wine, from Spain, WA, Victoria and SA, while the 7th is partnered with The Foraging Quail’s own house cocktail.

“Not only do I have the opportunity to pay it forward but so do diners. Their meal helps pay for another meal for someone way less fortunate.”

Tickets priced at $150 per head are limited, so book quickly to ensure a place.

When: Wednesday, 11 November 2015 at 7pm

Hospitality with Heart – your chance to give back this Christmas Eve 2015

A guest blog post by my big-hearted friend Natascha Mirosch who is organising a very special dinner this Christmas Eve; Hospitality with Heart – and she needs your help!


HospitatlitywithHeartI´ve just always been told: this is your life. Don´t ever expect anything more or wish for anything more.” Bertrina, YFS client and currently homeless.

What are you doing this Christmas Eve? Probably dreading the crack- of- dawn wake up rally from the kids desperate to get to their presents. Or perhaps you’re just looking forward to a long lunch with family and friends.

For many of Logan’s disadvantaged, including an estimated 10,000 children living in poverty, their immediate and urgent focus at Christmas is about where they’re going to sleep that night and how to keep their children safe.  Many have no extended family or are estranged from them, and with the majority of support services closed over the break, Christmas can be an extremely difficult and very lonely time of the year.

Hospitality with Heart is an informal group, consisting largely of largely media and hospitality professionals who want to help. We are not qualified to affect any long term change in the lives of people who are less blessed than we are, but we can help bring a little light into their lives at a time when they must feel forgotten.

As ‘Hospitality with Heart’, our group includes some of Brisbane’s finest chefs and restaurateurs as well as print and TV media professionals. We have teamed up with Logan charity YFS to produce a Christmas Eve party for the most needy families and individuals in Logan. They include children, victims of domestic abuse and refugee families. Our vision is to give them a night to remember, with an all- the- trimmings Christmas Eve party with beautiful food, music and hopefully lots of laughter.

We are all donating our time and (variable!) skills as chefs, waiters and cleaners for the night, but we are hoping for assistance to really make this a special evening. If you can help with any of the following items, please let us know:

Christmas hams, rice, beef for roast beef, bread, vegetables such as potatoes, tomoatoes, beans, onions, pumpkin, butter, Fruit, soft drink, gingerbread houses, prawns custard, whole fish, cream, Christmas puddings, ice-cream, salads, juices, chocolates, eggs, 4 large turkeys and more!

If you would like to donate money to help out, this can be done through YFS; please send a cheque to YFS, PO box 727 Woodridge 4114 and email to make a direct cash donation to YFS.

We are also seeking donations to provide goodie bags for men and women including small luxe itesm such as chocolates, hand cream, perfume, and other practical items. A hairdresser and manicurist to attend on Christmas Eve.

Your kindness is very much appreciated!

For more information or donate food, items or your time, please contact

Shred for a Cause helping build Hummingbird House

On Friday 25th September Reddacliffe Place at the top of Queen Street Mall will be transformed into a document shredding destination to help leave a legacy for Queensland children affected by life-limiting conditions.


Neil Taylor from Shred Easy said he wanted to create a fun and unique way to raise funds for a charity close to his heart, Hummingbird House.

“Shred for a Cause stems from a similar campaign Shred Easy ran in the UK. I wanted to find a way to raise some funds for Queensland’s first and only paediatric respite and hospice. A close family friend lost a child to cancer and from that experience I know how important it is for families to be close to each other and the best medical care during this time,” said Mr. Taylor.

“Everyone needs documents shredded, and Shred for a Cause is an easy way to get this job done while feeling good about giving back. All funds raised go directly to Hummingbird House.”

Shred for a Cause is a unique fundraising event whereby anyone can bring any document shredding required straight to the Shred Easy truck set up in Reddacliffe Place. All documents will be destroyed in exchange for a donation towards Hummingbird House.

Founded in 2011, Hummingbird House is a joint initiative of Queensland Kids and Wesley Mission Brisbane supporting Queensland families. Hummingbird House is Queensland’s only children’s hospice providing 24/7 care for children affected by a life limiting condition in a home away from home.

The Shred Easy Truck will be set up from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm in Reddacliffe Place. Residential and business documents can be shredded.

To find out more visit or like our Shred for a Cause event on facebook.

Cant attend?  Then please share this post on your facebook to spread the word!
