charity + community
whenever we can
We are seriously aware of how incredibly blessed we are to be able to have our dream jobs - playing with crystals all day every day!
We are always so humbled by the love and support we have come our way, it's only natural for us to shoot the love straight back out - what goes around comes around!
We give back as much as we can - by raising awareness, volunteering, directly assisting members of our Unearthed community when they're in need and by supporting charities that are near and dear to our hearts. Below are a few we adore and have supported; we'd love it if you would also consider helping them with their missions if you are in a position too 💕
Be the change you want to see in the world.
Are You Bogged Mate?
Are you bogged mate? is all about helping country blokes talk about mental health and suicide while spreading awareness about depression in the bush. This topic struck a chord, and highlighted that while there are services available for suicide prevention, there is a disconnect in the way depression is being communicated to country men. This charity wants to fix this disconnect. Are you bogged mate? aims to boost awareness and start a conversation with the broader community about the rising issue of depression and suicide rates among men in rural areas. They are confronting the challenges that country men face on a daily basis, talking about mental health, and lighting the path to support.Want to support this worthy cause? Check it out here!

Dogs for Kids

Growing up "different" isn’t easy and coming out can be one of the most challenging things someone who is of diverse sex, sexuality or gender (DSG) will ever do. Startout matches people of diverse sex, sexuality and gender (DSG) with role models from the LGBT community to help build resilience and self-acceptance.
The Indigenous Literacy Fund
Being able to read opens so many doors. But in very remote Indigenous communities, books are all too scarce and literacy levels are so much lower than anywhere else in Australia. The purpose of ILF is to make a difference to the lives of Indigenous families by not only gifting thousands of new culturally appropriate books – with a focus on early literacy and first language - but also by running programs to inspire the communities to tell and publish their own stories.Want to support this worthy cause?
