Making A Difference

You have the chance to change the life of somebody doing it tough - whether it’s because of health, business, finances or family. We want to help change somebody’s life for the better.

Who Are We?

The Tough Times Foundation was started after a group of car-loving blokes wanted to use their success in the automotive industry to do something for those doing it tough by providing potentially life changing support.

We believe one small gesture not only provides the opportunity to win an amazing prize, but goes a long way to help out somebody in need. We are committed to raising as much money as we can for our charity, which is why 100% of donations stay within the foundation and all ticket sales exclusive of marketing and legal costs stay within the foundation.

  • Positive Impact
    We want to make a difference to the lives of those doing it tough and provide an opportunity for others to do the same.
  • Community
    We want to engage with, create and give back to our community.

The Tough Times Foundation is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profit Commission. Our foundation raises money to help support those going through a tough time courtesy of generous corporate donors and prize giveaways. All net proceeds (exclusive of marketing, legal and prize costs) from every ticket sold go to the charity and help us help those in need.

Last year we had the chance to hang out with Oscar. Oscar suffers from Duchenne muscular dystrophy and is a huge fan of cars. Oscar’s mum got in touch with us last year and told us that Oscar watches all of Paul’s reviews over at CarExpert and that he wanted the chance to meet Paul.

So, we wanted to put on a fun day out for Oscar. Paul organised a Porsche 911 GT3 to surprise Oscar and collect him from his house. Paul and Oscar then toured Paul’s friend Alborz’s supercar-filled garage.

Oscar picked a supercar from Alborz’s garage and they jetted off to Queensland Raceway where Oscar was taken for hot laps around Queensland Raceway with former World Rally Championship driver Chris Atkinson. The day ended with Oscar officiating a drag race between Paul in the Porsche 911 GT3 and Alborz in his Lamborghini Huracan Performante!

HOW We’re Different

The Tough Times Foundation is a registered charity. That means we exist for the purpose of transparently and effectively helping those doing it tough. We raise funds through generous corporate and individual donors, in addition to exciting raffle draws.

Unlike some raffles and prize draws, every cent from every ticket sold, exclusive of marketing, prize and legal costs, goes into our distribution fund.

Each draw also clearly outlines how much we are aiming to raise and what we are aiming to spend raised funds on with the aim of being fully transparent so you know where your money is being spent.

If you have an idea for a future prize draw, please get in touch with us - we are always open to recommendations.

  • We're Fair Dinkum
