Levi’s and Habitat for Humanity launch new Workwear film via Monster Children Creative


Levi’s Australia and New Zealand has come together with not-for-profit housing organisation Habitat for Humanity Australia to create a new campaign for Levi’s Workwear via Monster Children Creative.


Titled ‘Work Means More’, the documentary style project features a group of dedicated tradespeople, volunteers and the local community coming together to provide housing for a Blue Mountains resident who lost everything in the Black Summer Bushfires.

Elisabeth has lived in Dargan for over 47 years, and lost her home in the fires that tore through the region in December 2019. She has been living in a makeshift shed ever since and working every day to restore her property and rebuild her life.

The group of volunteers from Habitat for Humanity Australia worked alongside a small team of tradespeople comprising a carpenter, builders, roofing specialist and landscape gardener to install a comfortable temporary home for Elisabeth, with fresh paint and decking, plumbing and landscaping.

The project highlights the enormous value gained from the physical work undertaken, for both Elisabeth and for those volunteering.

Says Trent Bos, head of marketing, Levi’s: “This is the type of contribution and connection that gets us out of bed each morning. What a privilege it was to come together with so many committed and inspiring humans. Two years on from the devastating Australian bushfires that swept across our land, we wanted to let our communities know that we haven’t forgotten about you.”

Habitat for Humanity is an international not-for-profit organisation driven by the vision of a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live. The housing organisation has grown to become a leading global non-profit working in more than 70 countries, with a mission to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. Worldwide, Habitat for Humanity has helped more than 35 million people access safe and decent housing, along with access to water, sanitation and hygiene to build better lives.

The Work Means More campaign is now live across outdoor, digital, print and in-store.
