After a five-year mining stint under the leadership of Worthy Parts Director Michael Worthington, Tim Brayshaw decided that a career in a workshop covered in diesel wasn’t the path he was meant to follow.
The 27-year heavy diesel mechanic, equipped with the necessary skills to recognise an honest days work and persistency, set out to start a brand that would make a difference from it’s product sales through to it’s message.
Brainless the brand incorporates product, and purpose – with a mission to encourage people to live a fulfilled life through their passion.
As a clothing brand, it is committed to donating $2AUD from every garment sold towards making a difference in the life of people who are in need of support.
“I wanted to create a community that covered all the areas important to me – so I set up a clothing brand that also raises funds for the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation (CBCF),” he said.
“For me, giving is the most important thing. After years working in the mining industry, I realised that this was in fact my passion, and in order to feel fulfilled, I needed to take a path that would allow me to follow my passion,” Brayshaw said.
“When you’re giving, doors seem to open and the people you meet on your journey is incredible.”
Now on the tail end of his USA tour running the New York Marathon and raising funds for the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation, Tim will head to Kalgoorlie-Boulder to auction off a R1300 bucket donated by the Worthy Parts team, donating all proceeds to the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation.
“It was after raising $3,275.00 in a Sydney Fun Run in January this year that the door opened and CBCF invited me to run on behalf of them in the New York City Marathon.”
At 29 years old, Brayshaw completed the marathon on November 4th, 2018 – successfully raising $14,000 for the Foundation.
Currently travelling across USA promoting his brand Brainless with goals to reach offshore markets over the next two years, Brayshaw will conclude his global tour back in Kalgoorlie-Boulder in early December for the WPIL Auction & Expo.
“I’m looking forward to seeing Wortho, as he was my boss – and has been a huge support in my bold journey to make a significance in peoples lives through the brand.
“Michael and the mining industry have played a major part in shaping me and allowing me to realise my own purpose, leading to living my passion – so I wouldn’t miss the EXPO for the world,” he said.
To round off his trip, Tim will host a live auction to sell off the R1300 bucket expected to raise between $5,000 to $15,000 to donate to the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation (CBCF).
“I’ll be speaking at the WPIL Auction & Expo and giving my perspective to the mining crowd on how one person can make a difference – and how collectively we’ll be working towards raising the funds!”
Tim touches down in Kalgoorlie on Sunday 2nd and will be the main key note speaker at the WPIL Auction and Expo. If you’d like to donate through Brainless, head to www.brainless.com.au.
