A new type of not-for-profit organisation that brings together the goodwill of the Australian public and the business community, DoSomething! works to create and promote positive social and environmental change.
DoSomething! was established in 2009 by Planet Ark founders Jon Dee and Pat Cash with Tina Jackson, former Executive Director the National Trust of Australia.
Motivated by the importance of walking the walk, rather than simply talking the talk, Pat, Jon and Tina founded DoSomething! to communicate the power of easy, common sense action. Put simply, they wanted to create an organisation which gave Australians an answer to the question ‘but what can I do?”
As part of its belief in the power of individual action, DoSomething! now campaigns on a series of social and environmental causes that are important for all Australians. By building alliances between businesses, governments and the community, DoSomething! is about finding and delivering measurable results and inspiring people to make simple, easy changes to their everyday lives.
