This client would like to use this style as its sortable. But I need to know how to make the images not cropped in the backgrounds of the link boxes, and how to add a shadow behind the posts. Would also like to make the link icon in the bottom right have a green background colour behind it.

TIACS

In 2015 Co-founder of TIACS, Daniel Allen was working as a carpenter when he received a life-changing phone call with the devastating news his best mate had taken his own life. This tragedy forged an unbreakable bond between Daniel and his then apprentice Ed Ross, as he leant on him for support through this tough time. The way Daniel and Ed supported each other and began speaking openly about their mental health would eventually spark an idea which led to the creation of TIACS. TIACS is a not-for-profit organization named after the phrase ‘This is a conversation starter’ which offers a free phone and text counselling service to Australia’s blue-collar community. TIACS was only made possible by Daniel and Ed’s first business venture, Trademutt, the funky high-vis tradie workwear emblazoned with the phrase ‘This is a conversation starter’ which was designed to grab attention and begin discussions about mental health. Trademutt quickly gained traction but its success of also led to questions of where tradies and other blue-collar workers could find further support. In the search for an answer to this question, it became clear to the co-founders that there was a gap in the market for a not-for-profit counselling…

Open Food Network

Since 2012, the Open Food Network (OFN) has been building better food systems. A not-for-profit organisation, OFN is an open-source platform that supports ethical, values-based supply chains. It facilitates selling and buying of food for producers and wholesalers, and allows communities of producers to come together to create a virtual farmers’ market. OFN was dreamed up in 2010 by Kirsten Larsen and Serenity Hill. Working in climate and sustainability policy and academic roles at the time, Kirsten and Serenity had a shared interest in food systems and the transformative power of sustainable food production and consumption. United by the realisation that sustainable and innovative food systems had to be built from the ground up, Kirsten and Serenity started OFN with a focus on transparent and short supply chains, and developing the technology needed to enable them. With a commitment to collaboration and being open source, OFN started by building a software platform to connect producers and consumers in a way that enables producers to control their price, and wholesalers to access ethical products. From there, the Open Food Foundation was formed (2012), to support the growth and use of the OFN software which during the COVID-19 pandemic was operational across…

Cool Australia

It was 18 years ago in Antarctica that the penny dropped for Cool Australia founder, Jason Kimberley. Witnessing firsthand the fragility of our environment and ecosystems, he returned home to Melbourne motivated to do something. Starting conversations with his children’s schoolteachers, he quickly uncovered a chronic lack of quality, accessible resources, and support for teachers in their efforts to educate students about the environment. Without time to upskill themselves in relevant, current climate science, let alone fashion that knowledge into appropriate lessons for students, teachers told Jason that important issues were being left out of the classroom. Research supports this, showing 76% of Australian teachers find their workloads unmanageable, and 45% work outside their area of expertise. 58% intend to leave the profession due to administrative burden. This situation was the catalyst for Cool Australia. Officially launched in 2008, today Cool develops and delivers free online, curriculum-aligned resources across social, environmental, and economic sustainability topics to a community of 200,000 educators and 3.2 million students. Across Early Learning, Primary and Secondary education, Cool’s mission is to enable teachers and parents to be the best educators they can be. It works both independently and in partnership with leading environmental and social…
