RID Amazon DT Challenge - The Trailer.
In Late 2014 we challenged Australia to find 1 Aussie bloke who was crazy enough to go to the Amazon on the ultimate test to prove RID works in one of the worst places for insects. Most of you know this story and others who have joined our community after may not. Please enjoy the trailer to familiarise yourself.

Without the support we received from you, this would never have happened. It’s an inspiring story that evolved and it started because one man had a vision to do one crazy adventure that only an Aussie would attempt. Being the Aussies we are, we jumped onboard and you did too.

Recently this one man with his crazy vision was recognised by his peers for creative excellence winning him and his team 2 Gold Awards and 1 Silver Award at a recent Advertising industry function. His name is Andy Gepp and without Andy and the amazing team at Publicis Mojo this would never have been the experience it turned out to be.

Congratulations must go to Andy for his vision and of course you our fans for jumping onboard and taking the journey with us.

Thanks for being part of our community and for helping us write just a little more of our history that embraces the great Aussie spirit of a brand that has 59 years of rich Australian heritage.

For those who missed the excitement, we will be releasing the episodes across our page over the next few weeks. Otherwise, you can find the whole series on our YouTube channel www.youtube.com/user/RIDaustralia

Help us, help them.

Every so often you come across someone special doing something amazing. Meet Allison O’Brien. Come January 2016 Ally will trek across hot and humid Thailand for 8 days, facing some of her own personal fears to support the at risk children of Thailand with Hands Across the Water. The Charity was founded by Peter Baines, a Former Australian police forensic specialist who was one of many attending the tragic 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami. This event affected us all in some way. Our hearts went out to those involved although Peter was inspired to establish an organisation that could make a difference. Ten years on and Hands Across the Water, has achieved some amazing and inspiring achievements. The charity encourages the orphans affected and those children at risk in Thailand the opportunity to keep their culture as if they had never become orphans and give them choice and hope…a hard thing to do when you have no parents and no future.

Hands works tirelessly to providing housing, medicine, care and education and it’s inspiring to meet someone like Allison and other fellow trekkers/riders who give their time freely and fund themselves to help others. It’s this selfless courage we admire and one that we feel empowered to help. 100% of the funds that Allison raises go directly to the charity, Allison will pay for her own airfare and accommodation and Peter and his team work independently to raise funds to support the charities admin and marketing.

When there are terrible things happening in the media we put forward a challenge to help Allison. By helping her, we’re helping others. We’re proud to have been able to donate product to the great people at Hands Across The Water for both trekkers and the children of the orphanage. Furthermore, we have pledged support to Allison and her challenge to trek across Thailand!
