About The Project
When you buy a tee or product from the Yellow Bird Project - you’re supporting Trekstock. We are a charity that give young adults living with cancer in their 20's and 30's, the emotional and practical support they need during and after treatment. We work with an amazing range of bands to create unique tee designs and products to help raise awareness and fundraise. Do good, look good, feel good & share your support #Trekstock #YellowBirdProject.

A History of The Yellow Bird
Let’s set the scene - the year was 2006, the sun was shining, and two recent uni grads Casey and Matt set out to conquer the world. Like Bono on a mission, they decided it was time to make a difference and bring about a new world order of indie philanthropy. Maybe it was philosophy 101, guitar lessons, or an infinite awe for music that inspired them to climb aboard this train we like to call Yellow Bird, but we’re sure glad they did. Matt, in all his computer geekdom, was pretty involved in the wonderful world wide web, and so the online community seemed like an ideal venue for inter-galactic indie domination. Casey, with his salesman swagger became the spokesperson for attracting new bands and artists. Together they forged into a solid brigade and the troops then followed, the trumpets played, and the community kept expanding.
One day in 2016, Casey & Matt met with us at Trekstock and realised that together, we could help change the game for young adults living with cancer - by donating all profits to one cause, a cause which they and all the artists involved felt passionately about supporting.
How You Are Helping Trekstock
Most people take moving into their 20's and 30's for granted but this isn’t the case for those who are told they have cancer - everything becomes a lot more complicated. Our online information hub, regular social events and wellbeing workshops all help to tackle the isolation, fear and anxiety that are part of facing cancer at a young age.
You can think of Yellow Bird Project as a tree of creativity, with branches joining Trekstock, musicians and t-shirts together with a fashionable punch. We seek out only the best artists, collaborate with them to design amazing one off tees, in order to provide emotional and practical support for young adults living with cancer.
