The jiu-jitsu community has really been stepping up to help the people and animals affected by the recent bushfires that have devastated large portions of Australia. Unity black belt Levi Jones-Leary is hosting a roll-a-thon, multiple high-level Australian grapplers are hosting a seminar, and Australian Girls In Gi are hosting a raffle to raise funds for those in need. Now, a jiu-jitsu apparel company is doing their part as well.
Heel Hookers Intl. is teaming up with Pure Mixed Martial Arts to put out a rashguard for which 100 percent of the profits will go to the NSW Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service (WIRES). The organization is currently working around the clock to help injured, orphaned, and displaced wild animals affected by the fires.
In addition to being created for a great cause, the rashguards are also delightfully “Aussie,” with a koala on the front and “Fight for Australia” over an image of the country on the back. The Australian flag is on the sleeves, and “Australia” is written on the sides.
Heel Hookers Intl. has stated that they hope to raise $100k for WIRES.
The rashguards run from sizes S to XXL and are available for pre-order for $50.
