Follow us, ya dogs!

Community

We are all in this together and we need to be there for one another, so we love to help fellow flattys in need. There are plenty of causes close to my heart, and donating to charity feels good ya dogs. We couldn’t do it without our supporters and collaborators – you’re all part of this.

Little Guppies

Nothing better than seeing a smile on a kid’s face, and with your support we get to help put one there. We’ve helped make sure some little guppies get gifts for Christmas, helped them get some gear to start chasing some dogs, and made sure a few families have what they need to get by.

Look below at some of the latest work we’ve done to help some kids.

Indigenous Associations

Always were, always will be – our First Nations brothers and sisters have some of the highest rates of health and mental health concerns, and we love to partner with organisations that help lend a hand.

Below are some of the services we’ve worked with.

Powerfish Gift

Donating to charity feels good ya dogs! That’s why we set up a regular segment called Powerfish Gift, where we hear of a person or organisation that have had a rough time or need a bit of a hand, we make use of your generous support to lend them some help. Here are some of the Powerfish Gifts we’ve been able to distribute.

Helping out the Locals

I’ve experienced things in life where I’ve been at my end and been given a second chance, and now I want to use that chance to help other people. There’s plenty of people doing it tough. Thanks for all the support and contributing towards these gifts, as you all help make these possible.

Catch our videos below giving some locals a hand up.

Mental Health

We are never to bust to ask if our mate is doing ok or to pick the phone up to start the conversation. I have called helpline numbers many times myself. Any chance I get I’m going to be open and real, and help promote the people and services who are there to help us.

Here are some numbers to be used if you need a place to call – they’re anonymous and no judgement. Pick up the phone.

We spent $30,000 on kids toys before Christmas. There’s nothing better than seeing their faces as they unwrap a toy. Thanks to everyone who helped buy, wrap, and move these toys, and to all our supporters who made it possible.
