Local adventurer and author Matt Towner has found a sharp new way to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation and launch his latest book at the same time.
Matt’s 80-year-old mum is a long-term leukaemia survivor so he’s chosen to make the launch of his new book Crazy Shi*t in Asia a fundraiser for the charity.
But here’s the hook – he’s launching the book as part of The World’s Greatest Shave at The Blade barbers’ shop under La La Land in Byron Bay on Friday, March 16, from 5pm as he goes the Full Mo.
You can choose to join him at fundraise yourself, or donate to Matt’s fundraising page.
Matt, who is very lucky to be alive after a motorcycle accident in the middle of nowhere deep in the dark jungles of Thailand after smuggling gemstones all over the world for a living, has turned his taste for adventure into a series of books.
New Holland Publishers have commissioned the series and aim to have them in every airport bookshop globally as well as all good book stores and both books are available online already and selling very quickly now.
