Do Something! Day

Your Local Club in partnership with News Corp, the Daily & Sunday Telegraph and News Local have launched the “Do Something! Day” campaign, designed to encourage and showcase the good things that people do for others. The campaign will run until its official day of celebrations on the 15th June 2016.

‘Do Something! Day’ underpins the Your Local Club campaign that launched in November 2015, celebrating the concept that the core of a club’s purpose is to give back.

The Academy will be running an Instagram competition, with the chance to win a $200 voucher to spend on any item/s from 2XU’s compression clothing range.

In order to be in the running to win this prize, you must upload an image to Instagram of you ‘giving back’ to someone else. The image must be captioned with all four of the following hashtags: #giveyourbest #dosomethingday #wsas #yourlocalclub

The competition will close at 11:59pm AEST on 15th June 2016. For every competition photo uploaded your name will be entered into the draw one (1) time, at the conclusion of the competition we will draw out a winner through a random selection method. The more photos you upload of your good deeds the more chances you have to win! (Only one photo per good deed will be accepted into the draw).

Some examples of how you can show your support for “Do Something! Day” are:

  • Bake something for your colleagues, friends, class mates, team mates
  • Shout a stranger a coffee in the line behind you
  • Help someone cross the road/unload groceries into their car, etc.
  • Offer to carry someones bags up the stairs
  • Give your train, bus or ferry seat up for someone else

The winner of the competition will be announced on Monday 20th June 2016 via the @westsydacademy Instagram account.
