Thundamentals Give $20k To Launch Ongoing Charity Initiative

Australian hip-hop heroes Thundamentals, well known for their thought provoking lyrics and positive messages, have taken things a step further by starting the Got Love Initiative.

Titled from their single Got Love from their 2014 album “So We Can Remember” the song talks about a variety of issues to do with Asylum Seekers and ignorance to issues in Australia in general.

DJ Morgs, Tuka, Jeswon and Poncho, aka Thundamentals, humbly made their first donation of $20,000 to The Asylum Seeker Centre in Sydney’s Newtown on the 4th of August.

The donation was raised from the profits of a specifically designed t-shirt for the initiative that were sold online and during the band’s 2015 “Elephant In The Room” Tour.

"It got to a point where we felt that simply going out and asking people to "take your fist and make a peace sign with it" was becoming a bit trivial for us. We wanted to help in a more tangible way," explains Tuka.

"By incentivising our fans to donate to a cause by buying a piece of specific merch we felt this might become a talking point for people to discuss the issue amongst their friends and hopefully raise more awareness" he said.

Universal Music Australia would like to thank everyone who picked up a "Got Love" t-shirt over the last few months.

“We are so stoked that you got behind the cause and it has definitely been inspiring to feel the public support for an issue that we hold close to our hearts" said Tuka

The Got Love Initiative will continue working with different charities on further specific merchandise, live events, and more to raise awareness and much needed funds for causes close to the hearts of Thundamentals.
