Australian custom motorcycle brand Deus Ex Machina has pimped a postie bike for ChildFund Australia to send to Cambodian families in remote communities.
Deus is donating the specially painted bike to international aid agency ChildFund Australia for their Post a Postie campaign.
Riders and others are invited to buy a postie bike, donate money or buy other gifts from the ChildFund’s annual Gifts for Good Catalogue.
Making a difference
The charitable gifts will make a real difference for disadvantaged people, says ChildFund Australia CEO Nigel Spence.
For example, the postie bike could be used to deliver water filters to communities without access to a safe water source; reading kits to schools; vaccines for immunisations; solar lamps to villages without electricity, and even seedlings and chickens to rural families who want to expand their farming activities to generate more income.
“Not many people realise that when you get off the tourist trail in Cambodia, there are villages completely unreachable by car,” he says.
“Seasonal rains can mean roads are inaccessible for months. So motorcycles are absolutely vital to deliver essential items and services to some of the poorest children, families and villages in the country.”
The Post a Postie campaign is also being supported by actress Danielle Cormack (pictured top of page) and Bondi Rescue stars Andy Reid, Corey Oliver and Ryan Clarke.
They will be present at the Deus and ChildFund present: The Power Of Posties at the Deus Café on November 29, from 6-8pm. A limited number of tickets are available through Deus.
Deus founder Dare Jennings says the company was founded on the principle that “doing something is more fun than just owning something”.
“We got behind the Post a Postie campaign because we are not only celebrating one of our favourite motorcycles, we’re celebrating how important it can be in changing people’s lives – it really is something special,” he says.
