If you’re a book lover, there’s a great chance you’ve read something published by the good folk at Pan MacMillan Australia. They’re one of the world’s largest and most well-renowned publishing houses, releasing a broad range of titles across literary fiction, children’s fiction, autobiography and biography, true crime, Australian, and more.
They’ll be joining The Happy Pack alongside a number of other brands, companies, and local businesses.
Prestigious publishing house Pan MacMillan Australia are one of the many brands jumping on board The Happy Pack: an initiative for artists in isolation.
The Happy Pack is an initiative involving organisations such as Panhead Custom Ales, Fender, RØDE, Thrills, Happy Mag, and more, aimed at offering a helping hand to creatives in this unexpected and altogether not so chill situation. It’s a box of gifts valued over $1200, delivered to the front doors of artists in isolation.
Each Happy Pack will contain a copy of one of Pan MacMillan Australia’s best selling titles, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*** by Mark Manson.
Any creative who has lost work during the COVID-19 pandemic is eligible to receive a package, from musicians to photographers to illustrators. Initially deliveries will only be available to Sydney residents, with the mind to expand elsewhere in Australia during the coming months.
The Happy Pack doesn’t pretend to make up for any lost income, but it will give you something to look forward to, something to pass the time, and engage you with a community of like-minded creatives united by this crazy world order.
