What is Sober in the Country ?
After 5 years of voluntary work, and an episode of Australian Story called ”Last Drinks,” viewed by millions, Shanna was granted charitable status in 2019 and has since turned her passion into a national not-for-profit: Sober in the Country (aka SITC) which now reaches up to 100,000 Australians via social media and straight-talk designed for rural Australians.
SITC’s ‘OK2SAYNO’ campaign has been creating social impact in the bush by teaching mates to be fully respectful and supportive of others, no matter what they’re drinking… Far from being an anti-alcohol message; SITC is showing an entire bush culture the life-saving message that when somebody chooses to say ‘no thanks’ or ‘not today’ (no matter their reason) our support can be a game-changer. The campaign has been so well received that on 22.2.22 it will become the charity’s official, annual charitable day to raise funds, awareness, and to continue the social momentum.
The charity’s peer support group known as the Bush Tribe is a connection point for hundreds of like-minded rural men and women choosing to cut back or ditch the booze for good, and in addition to administrating this space while collecting essential data and information to take to leadership as a tool in her fight for ‘better for the bush’ – Shan personally travels upon invitation across Australia – and has represented rural Oz in amazing places from the Opera House stage to the desert, and in between, where she advocates for other overlooked and invisible rural, regional or remote Australians who – just like her – face endless enormous barriers that come with living in ‘permanent ISO’ minus adequate services or support and in a social culture steeped in booze.Her philosophy – and now national not-for-profit organisation Sober in the Country (SITC’s) charity philosophy is deeply rooted in the famous Desmond Tutu quote that – ”there comes a time when we need to stop pulling people out of the river when they’ve already drowned – and go upstream and find out why they’re falling in.”
