Support Act & triple j announce return of Ausmusic T-Shirt Day
This year’s Ausmusic T-Shirt Day is held on Friday, November 15, as part of a fundraising initiative for Support Act Ltd.
Ausmusic T-Shirt Day is a nationwide celebration of Australian music, with punters encouraged to wear their favourite Aussie music T-shirt on the day.
It was started in 2014 by triple j and ARIA as part of the national youth radio network’s Ausmusic Month and to mark the start of ARIA Week in November.
Music fans can help Support Act continue its work with artists, arts workers and road crews who have fallen on financial and health times.
They can create an individual or team fundraising page on the Ausmusic T-Shirt Day website, and invite their networks to donate and wear their fave Ausmusic T-shirt to work, school or play on the day.
Photos can be posted to socials using the hashtag #ausmusictshirtday and tag @supportact, @triplej, @aria_official.
“We are excited to be part of Ausmusic T-Shirt Day again this year,” said 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 lovers across Australia can mobilise support in their workplaces, schools and personal networks to set up fundraising teams on the ausmusictshirt.org.au webpage.
“We want to create a sea of Ausmusic t-shirts on the streets and across social media on Friday, November 15.”
The public can also visit a Levi’s store or levis.com.au
The apparel company partnered with Angus & Julia Stone, Ruel, Ocean Alley, Parkway Drive, Tkay Maidza and INXS to create 6 limited tees.
General Pants, in association with Bravado, is selling a limited range of exclusive t-shirts prints in-store and online from November 1 from Midnight Oil, Silverchair, Baker Boy, Meg Mac, Vera Blue and Polish Club.
100% of net proceeds from both initiatives go to Support Act.
All funds raised will help Support Act to expand the reach of its widely acclaimed Wellbeing Helpline and continue to provide crisis relief to artists, crew and music workers in need.
