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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Blue Pie Records want to take the time today to thank the Guide Dogs Australia organisation for all they do. The sheer amount of devotion and passion that goes into training these majestic animals to support us is astounding, and the dogs themselves are clever beyond measure! Did you know that if a Guide Dog approaches you alone, something has happened to their owner and you should follow them to provide assistance? Every little detail has been thought of, and it’s with this level of devotion that we can be assured that those who use Guide Dogs are in the best hands… or paws… possible. Blue Pie are regular donators to this amazing service, as a matter of fact, and we feel that they deserve every bit of it. This Christmas, consider asking people you don’t know what gift to get if they want you to donate to this wonderful organisation on their behalf! This season is all about giving, so it’s critical that charities like this are considered.
From the Guide Dogs About Us page, here’s a summary of what the organisation is all about:
Guide Dogs NSW/ACT is the leading provider of Guide Dogs and orientation and mobility services that enable people with low vision or blindness to get around their communities safely and independently.
Each year our highly trained Orientation and Mobility specialists work with around 4,000 people of all ages to help them achieve their mobility goals.
We rely heavily on generous donations from the people of NSW and the ACT to fund our services. Less than 10% of our income comes from government funding, including NDIS.
Guide Dogs NSW/ACT is a Registered Provider under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
As well as connecting participants to support providers, we can help NDIS participants with the co-ordination of supports on their individual plans.
Dig deep for the Guide Dogs – dogs sure love to dig, after all! Join us as regular donators and know that you’re supporting an organisation that truly deserves all the love they can get – as much love as a dog has for their owner.
The Blue Pie Records Media Team and Planet Blue Pictures teamed up for the launch of the film “The Argues The Movie”.
The campaign was very successful and secured an official quote from the then primer minister Julia Gillard:
“The Adopt A Pensioner program and the initiative created by Blue Pie Records and Barry Crocker to allow pensioners to the see the new “Argues” movie is a fantastic program. Congratulations to Barry and all the team”
Prime Minister | Australia
The campaign included National TVC Commercials on selected community networks and Channel 7. The program was all about adopting a pensioner and taking them to the movie for free. We partnered with Channel 7 to launch the film with Hoyts. Barry Crocker was the spokesperson for this campaign.
Channel 7 featured a story on Today Tonight announcing the marketing campaign. Every pensioner in Australia was able go to the cinema with anyone that “Adopts A Pensioner” for the day. The pensioners go to the movie for free.
ABOUT THE MOVIE – THE ARGUES THE MOVIE
THE ARGUES THE MOVIE is a story of how a son, a mother, and a duck named Leon Skank assault the Hollywood star system in an attempt to secure work through one of the biggest international actors’ agents in the world, Ed Tomato at ICU Management Los Angeles.
However, things don’t go so well!
The ramifications of their approach to secure Ed as an agent result in a chase around the world…and the World Wide Web after “Skanky” David’s puppet duck becomes the talk of the town.
This is a story of remembrance, rehabilitation and outrageous situations that offer a bizarre insight into the world of showbiz and the struggles of an out of work actor.
ARGUEably a funny, mad and eccentric trip!

Blue Pie Records donates part of their profits each year to World Vision. Since we started with World Vision in 1996, we have been able to donate over $30,000 AUD with regular monthly payments and additional top up payments. You can see the World Vision Tax Statements below.
Most of the funds are directed towards aid in Africa, providing clean water for communities who would otherwise get sick from dysentery and have a much shorter life expectancy.
For a few dollars each week you can make a lifetime of difference.

The Hurricane Healing initiative was established in 2005, with the vision to help all victims of the Hurricane Katrina disaster that same year.
Since then, Hurricane Healing has grown to give a helping hand to all victims worldwide who have been affected by natural disasters. We have been steadily building this initiative to combine music with charity!
Over the past few years, we have been producing physical CD compilation albums and digital compilations thanks to the support of over 150 indie artists and 20 + indie record labels from around the world that send us music.
All of the Hurricane Healing compilation albums are available through iTunes, eMusic, Rhapsody and many more online retailers. To find our compilations, simply search for “Hurricane Healing” as the album title, and you will find it there!
