How can I help / connect / contribute / or donate?
We are a registered national charity with DGR status (meaning tax deductible recipient status) and you can donate in a couple of minutes through our online portal here. And of course you can help in many other ways also outlined.
What exactly do you guys at SITC do?
That is covered in the about us section.
How do I join the Bush Tribe?
Click here, fill out the form, and stand by while we process and respond. The reason we ask new members to fill out a form is for privacy & protection: two things we are strict on.
Can you give me one-on-one advice / Are you a service provider?
No, we're not a one-on-one programme or coaching service. Our work is in advocacy and peer support. Please visit our resources section to use the services and support we recommend - including home based online detox. We offer an amazing peer support network through the Bush Tribe for rural and remote people.
I am from the media - how do I get in touch?
Just head to our Bookings page where you'll find plenty of info.
Do you take story contributions?
YES, yes and yes. Our passion lies in amplifying messages and YOUR VOICES from all across the bush. Whether you spent a month booze free or you've decided to quit for good, we love to share your stories, and your progress. Submit a yarn here at our contact page here.
Does Shanna travel upon invitation and present in person? On air / radio / webinar?
She does indeed and you can book here. Please be aware that her time is increasingly short, so early bookings and big lead times are ESSENTIAL.
Do you have merchandise?
YES, we sure do. Trucker caps, Tees, and tanks. AND - work shirts will arrive n MAY 2021!
Visit our merch page here to order.
I have a family member I am worried about. What do I do? Where do I go?
SITC exists for the person fighting the addiction but we hope, one day, to create a rural space online for family members, too. For now we have a few suggestions on our resources page. But also we'd recommend you search and join a Facebook or online group.
What happens with our donations?
Currently, donations go towards ensuring the two full-time staff can keep getting up and showing up. We're currently working around the clock on gathering data, supporting our peer members in the Bush Tribe, preparing the 2022 podcast, and launching our incoming national #OK2SAYNO day. We basically need about 20 more people full time, and we would love to think that as we grow, so does funding.
