Yeah The Boys fund widowed fisherman's charter holiday
Ray Johnstone pulled on the heartstrings of millions of Australians when he posted an ad on Gumtree searching for a fisher partner. Ray described himself as a widowed land based fisherman who's fishing partner had also passed away, he was willing to pay half of any supplies bait, fuel etc. but within hours the spirit of Australian mate-ship made sure Ray could keep his money in his pocket.
Facebook page Yeah The Boys is home to a large swath of Australia's young men & is often the target of misguided feminist banshees, but today even Clementine Ford would struggle to point a finger, after the Facebook page & it's followers raised over $2000 to send Ray Johnstone on an all expenses paid fishing charter trip.
The Batsinilas brothers can also not go un-noticed in this beautiful tale, they have offered to fly Ray Johnstone & his grandson from their home in South Australia up to Queensland for 2 days to take them fishing off Stradbroke Island, BCF have also made sure Ray has the latest gear for his trip.
It's stories like this make me proud to be an Australian, people going above & beyond for someone they don't know is what Australia was built on. Long live the mateship, good work boys.
