Charity

Welcome to the Blue Pie charity section of our website. Blue Pie and our partner companies are proud to support the following charities. If you would like to know more about how Blue Pie and our partners and how we provide support for charity then please email: sales@bluepie.com.au

Blue Pie Records is a doting and active supporter of the children’s charity ‘Variety.’ We raise money through out artists, and each month we receive their newsletter, featuring stories of how they have immensely improved the quality of life for families with children who need that little bit more love and care.

The latest E-Newsletter touched us, so we would love to share and spread the word of this amazing foundation that pour their time and hearts into helping kids with disabilities. Their ‘Story Of The Month’ reads:

“Cassadee was diagnosed with nocturnal epilepsy, which causes her to have up to eight seizures a week. Cassadee’s seizures, caused by lesions on her brain, began when she was just seven with each episode lasting anywhere from two to five minutes.

Kerry explains, “Cassadee slept in our room so we could watch her all the time. Even on nights when Cassadee didn’t have a seizure, our high level of anxiety meant that we never had a restful night’s sleep.


Variety recently funded an EpiSafe epilepsy device which enables monitoring for the presence of seizures and reduces the risk of Cassadee coming into harm from a prolonged seizure.  Placed underneath the bed sheet, the wireless sensor detects movement at the onset of a seizure and sounds an alarm.

Kerry and Robert are hopeful that in the future, either an implant or surgery to remove the lesions will eliminate Cassadee’s epilepsy; however, in the interim, they are extremely grateful to Variety for providing the monitor which has restored their quality of life.  “While we still haven’t felt comfortable having Cassadee sleep in a separate room, at least we now have the chance to rest easy,” said Kerry.”  

The Variety Children’s Charity has offices around Australia, USA and Canada. Blue Pie Records encourages others to get on board for a good cause and make a donation at www.variety.org


We are extremely proud to receive yet another letter of thanks from David Small, CEO, Variety, the children's charity.

We are glad to have made a difference to the lives of those children in need. 

To Quote David Small - CEO " I would like to extend our deep thanks to you and the teams at Blue Pie and the marketing team at Dealing With Destiny for the non stop support you have shown Variety. Your ongoing support in helping us to raise much needed funding for Australian children born with serious illness and disability. Without the kindness and generosity from companies such as Blue Pie and Dalifey Films, Variety - the Children's Charity, would be unable to provide the special care we believe is not only valuable but vital for those children affected by illness or disability. So far we have been able to raise close to $10,000 from the raffle of the car " Betsy" in the film and box office ticket sales that have been kindly donated and there is more to come from your marketing efforts with retailers like Coles and Woolworths and hopefully support from QANTAS and VIRGIN showing the film in their In-Flight systems. You have been very creative with this film and we look forward to working with you on any new film projects where you wish to donate proceeds to Variety. I would like to send special thanks to Paul and James Condoleon and Damien Reilly for jumping on board to help fund this cause and to get the business model over to us last year. I want everyone involved to know the disadvantaged children of Australia are incredibly grateful. Thankyou Damien, Paul and James and the teams at Blue Pie and Dalifey Films for your great work."

Blue Pie gets the thanks from our favourite charity for creating a new ' destiny ' for some underprivileged children.

We have been very touched by the thank you letter from Mr David Small - CEO of Variety, the children's charity. Blue Pie has been working with Dalifey on the Dealing With Destiny film and the films premiere at the ' Fox Entertainment Corridor ' at Moore Park was on Monday night. We have a packed house and if you have the time you can check out the photos on the films and Blue Pie's FaceBook pages.

Thanks from all of the team to the hard working people at Variety and now we are on the count down to the auction of some of the best and most exciting memorabilia we have been able to secure from our friends in high places and the car ' Betsy ' from the film.

"Village To Village" Tsunami relief appeal:

Blue Pie was fortunate to be able to donate two items from our memorabilia collection to be auctioned by the Village To Village" Tsunami relief appeal and raise over $1100 to help the victims of the disaster. You can read the great note of thanks from Matt Farmer, Event Co-Ordinator.
 
"Hey Damien and the Blue Pie Team, thank you for your contributions to the "Village To Village" Tsunami relief appeals in January and March this year. These were local, grass roots initiatives from local surfing communities, musicians and pro surfers on the Northern beaches of Sydney which through the assistance of the Lions Club International, Quiksilver, engin and Surf Aid International raised over $15,000.00 from these events. The funds raised went to specific villages in the Mentawi and Tews islands who were largely missed by mainstream aid at the time of this horrendous disaster. These contributions were invaluable in saving lives through medical aid and support. Thank you for so much for your valued contribution."

We are now into our 7th year of sponsoring The Hawks Major League Baseball Team. The total sponsorship to date is now over $25,000. Magic Blue Creative and Blue Pie have provided the website, design, web radio and all hosting/email services for the Hawks MLB since 2003.

This is just one of the many ways that we help to give back to the community. As we grow we will continue to support community sports where possible. If you would like us to help your charity grow then email damien@bluepie.com.au to find out more.


Blue Pie is very pleased to be able to support the 46664 foundation. The project is an initiative from Blue Pie Productions, Crush Management, Rusty Anderson, Dino Jag and the artists that performed on this great song including Abe Laboriel Jr, David Kahne, Probin Gregory, Brian Ray, Paul Wickens and Sir Paul McCartney. The project is all about helping those affected with AIDS and the families of the affected, living with aids. The main effort is in South Africa through the 46664 foundation.

We have all united to help generate sales of this great song so that we can send cash donations to the 46664 foundation and help those that need help the most. This is our way, all the performers and the many companies that are supporting the project to help to make a difference. You can help by simply downloading this song and getting as many people as you can to download the song. Proceeds from the sale of this song world wide will go directly to the 46664 foundation. This includes the ringtones, video clip, all digital downloads and all compilation CD's that the song is licensed to and any advertising revenue we generate. We hope that you will help to support this great cause and enjoy the music for the great new "Hurt Myself " track.

Thank you from all the crew at Blue Pie, Rusty Anderson, Crush, Dino Jag and the many artists that have gathered to support the 46664 foundation. Check out the website and download the song. Just by downloading the song you are helping those that need it the most and you get some great music at the same time.


Blue Pie and the Blue Pie Shop have provided a donation of over $15,000 in memorabilia to the Foundation Diane. Foundation Diane is a not-for-profit organisation committed to raising funds for research into the early, accurate detection of cancers to improve the health and well being of all Australians. The Foundation commemorates Diane Bath, the daughter of rugby league legend Harry Bath and Gwen Bath, who succumbed to a rare form of cancer in 1996. We are very happy to be associated with this great cause.

Blue Pie actively supports Variety where ever possible. One of our recent initiatives has been the creation of the Variety Barry Crocker Ringtones site. 

The site provides users with the ability to download some crazy and very funny ringtones from one of Australia's iconic stars " Mr Barry Crocker ". Every time someone downloads a ringtone 30% of the profits generated on every sale are donated to Variety. You can read about how Barry supports Variety and all the fantastic work that they do by visiting Barry's website.

One of the other ways that we have been able to support Variety has been through the sale of CD's via the Blue Pie shop. Click here to see the thank you letter and donation.


Hurricane Healing was originally started as an aid for the victims of the catastrophic 2005 Hurricane Katrina. Blue Pie is committed to helping Hurricane Healing grow and generate funds for the victims of hurricane disasters around the world.

The project is all about the creation of compilation albums with artists from the Blue Pie roster. You can see the advertisement we have on Sonicbids here. Click here to see the ad. This will explain what you do to support the program and how you can help by proviing your music to help to rebuild lives from the devisation of the Hurricanes.

Since 2005 we have been able to donate over $2000 USD to the Salvation Army both locally in Australia and in the USA. In Australia we have made cash donations at various locations and to the Salvation Army Officers as they ask for funds in the various shopping malls in Sydney Australia.  In the USA we have been able to donate over $1100 directly to the Salvation Army. You can see the donation receipts on the Hurricane Healing website.  This is as at January 2012.

Blue Pie and Damien Reilly have donated cash, labour and resources worth well over $60,000 over the past 6 years to pay for the development and building of all the infrastructure, systems and labour required to run the Hurricane Healing website. With the site and brand name developed Hurricane Healing can now expand and seek to raise larger funds from corporate partners to help the many victims of Hurricanes all over the world. 

The compilation albums that we have created for this great cause just keep producing income for the victims. This is a great renewable income stream. There are amazing supporters of the campaign and in the years to come this will grow and grow. Rome was not built in one day as they say. We are proud to have been able to provide consistent support from the sales of these great albums over the past 5 years. As the Blue Pie roster of artists grows then so shall the donations to the Salvation Army helping all the victims of the Hurricanes world wide.

Please have a look over the site and see if you feel you would like to join us in with our aid program then please email: sales@bluepie.com.au

We will send you out a distribution kit and you can have your music listed in the next batch of compilations. Check out iTunes and click here to see some of the many artists that have helped so far.


Blue Pie and partner Magic Blue Creative donate part of their profits each year to World Vision. Since we started with World Vision in 1996 we have been able to donate over $17,500 AUD (This figure is as at July 2010). Most of the funds go towards aid in Africa, providing clean water for communities who would otherwise get sick from dysentery and have a much shorter life expectancy.

We also sponsor 2 World Vision children and hope that you will spare the time to check out this leader in humanitarian aid and consider doing the same. For a few dollars each week you can make a lifetime of difference. You can see our two World Vision kids Perla and Freddy below.
