Truth About Wool National Tour
I will be touring Australia in 2017/18 promoting the wool industry. My mission is to showcase wool to the rest of the world in all of it's glory, shed light on the growing and harvesting processes and give recognition to the dedicated wool growers and harvesters.
A book will later be published on the tour travels and imagery. It is then hoped that the book will hit the road to the major cities along with other imagery and wool industry speakers to educate the larger metro areas about the wool industry.
The national tour will start in February 2017 and continue through all of the states (except NT) where it will end late 2018.
I will be self funding this tour other than generous donations from the public and other businesses. The funds raised through my GoFundMe Campaign will help with the travel and accomodation costs.
I am passionate about the wool industry and most Australians have a connection to it someway or another. Wool has played such an important part in Australia's past and it is my mission to make sure that it is part of our future.
By donating to my campaign, you won't just be supporting me, you will be supporting thousands of wool industry workers, farmers and generations to come.
As my mission to travel across Australia promoting the wool industry progresses, small tweaks have been made along the way to help it run smoother and get more industry stories and wool education out to a wider audience.
A HUGE CHANGE IS HAPPENING NOW!
While I may have been a little naive to think that I could cover our diverse industry within a few months, the logistics of getting me across our great nation (and sacrificing my day job woolclassing) has taken a larger financial strain than first expected.
So, the tour will now run over two years.
I have returned to my woolclassing role with my ever supportive shearing team, Cullen and Sons and will now work in the woolsheds to pay off my touring debt and earn enough $$ to travel to the next state.
I refuse to give up on my mission and will complete my tour.
I will do my bit to promote wool and educate the world on why we are the leaders in wool .
I won't rest until my job here is done.
Thank you to all who have already donated to the tour - I will be honouring all donations still, just those waiting on books, prints etc... may have a little longer wait.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
All the best!
Such an awesome team, full of laughs. Made me miss my team back home!
The weather is freezing but, the sights awe inspiring!
