SOME may consider using camels to raise money and awareness for charity an unusual choice, but not Ashley Huskisson.
Originally from the Sunshine Coast, he dreamt up the idea while travelling Australia with his five-year-old son and partner.
``I wanted to do something good with my life,'' Mr Huskisson said.
Mr Huskisson has been putting his own money into the venture, with the hope of creating something worthwhile and beneficial.
He sought out Mount Isa's Paul Keegan to help him gain the knowledge and experience to make the idea a reality.
Mr Keegan has been working with camels for more than 20 years. He attributes time, patience and knowing what you're doing to successful training, with food and a place to keep them high on the list of necessities.
The idea is in the early stages of development.
However Mr Huskisson insists the possibilities are endless, and has plans to dye two camels pink and take a tour of towns to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer.
The aim is to use the camels to raise money for children's and cancer related charities.
Any businesses looking to get involved can contact Ashley Huskisson on 0435 780 437.
