Once upon a time there was a tiny sugar-producing township called Tully in Far North Queensland, Australia. Tully is renowned for its endless sugar fields and...rain. One day the townsfolk were shocked by the devastating news that Brazil had dumped its sugar on the world market. "What will we do?" they cried, "We will all be ruined." Not being one to knock back a challenge, life-time resident and Rotary Club member Ron Hunt calls a meeting with the town leaders to see what can be done to save Tully from financial rack and ruin. Ron proposes to build The World's Biggest Gumboot in honour of Tully's record rainfall of 7.98 metres in 1950.

The Aral Sea lies between Kazakhstan in the north and Uzbekistan in the south. Once the world's fourth-largest inland saline body of water the Aral Sea has been steadily shrinking since the 1960s after the rivers that fed it were diverted by Soviet Union irrigation projects. There is now an ongoing effort in Kazakhstan supported by a Danish humanitarian group, Aral Tenizi, to save and replenish the North Aral Sea.
