Over four weeks in May & June 2011, The Body Shop customers were asked to Give Racism The Finger. During that time we collected 50,706 fingerprints in 83 stores across Australia. The Body Shop initiated conversations with 300,000 customers during the campaign.
GiveNow Week takes place around Australia during December each year to focus attention on the many ways we can make a difference to the lives of others.
This week, please make a donation to All Together Now to help us continue to promote the prevention of racism. We are the only national not-for-profit working solely on addressing racism in Australia. As you’ll see from our recent Annual Report and Give Racism The Finger project report, our overheads are extremely low (1%) and our social impact is high. Every dollar you donate will make a difference.

All Together Now is conducting interviews to find out what people think racism is, how it has affected them or others, and what can be done about it. Each interview is filmed for distribution online, and will take less than half an hour. We are interviewing individuals, as well as groups of colleagues representing a business.
“Australia’s colonial and racist underpinnings are revealed in the penetrating and stylish crime docu The Tall Man. Helmer Tony Krawitz creates a vivid portrait of an Australian island enraged by the death of an Aboriginal man while in custody of the local, predominantly white-run police force.” Variety magazine
