Donate a Crowbar $38
Buy a Beanie $22
Summer 2020 Fundraiser
Pay it Forward – purchase a crowbar (digging stick) online and we will distribute it to someone out bush wanting to go hunting.
Each summer Waltja purchases good quality crowbars which have been uniquely designed to be good for use as digging sticks. We sell them for project work but we also gift them to people who live out on remote communities. They are used for getting bush foods. Crowbars are used to dig in the hard and sandy dirt of the red central desert. Honey ants, bush yams and onions, witchetty grubs and lizards are just a few of the items on the menu. The best gift you can give a community person for Christmas is a good crowbar so they can keep their culture and language strong, keep physically fit and connected to country. Let’s support bush mob.
Purchase a Waltja beanie – available in a range of bright colours as well as black, with the Waltja logo – 100% of funds raised go to our social programs helping people in need on remote NT communities.

Our board of directors are all indigenous women leaders from remote communities and they steer the organisation’s direction according to a set of indigenous principles they have named ‘The Waltja Way’.
