HypeFM's Dixie will auction her Big Brother running shoes on Australian online auction site OZtion to raise awareness for beyondblue, the national independent not-for-profit organisation that seeks to address issues associated with depression, anxiety and related substance misuse disorders in Australia. She will be auctioning the jogging shoes that Big Brother gave her, with all proceeds going to beyondblue.

Dixie is a mental health worker and is studying sports psychology. She said she was passionate about supporting beyondblue, an initiative supported by the federal and state governments.

Dixie Crawford, from Dubbo, was the outgoing country girl that had one of the strongest personalities in the Big Brother house this year. Big Brother gave Dixie the pair of joggers because she kept asking for a pair so she could keep fit in the house. ''I am passionate in my support of mental health issues and I hope this auction raises awareness of the services and support that beyondblue provides to people from all walks of life who suffer from some form of depression or anxiety,'' Dixie said. ''It would be great to raise a bit of money, but also bring attention to beyondblue and maybe let some young people know they are not alone out there and there are support services that do exist for them.'' Spending 35 days inside the Big Brother house,

Dixie was eventually evicted earlier this month after actually nominating herself for eviction. Since leaving the house Dixie has returned to home town Broken Hill to host the breakfast show on local radio station Hype FM.

The show called “Dixie’s Big Breakfast” will consist of celebrity chat and gossip, interviews with Big Brother evictee’s and inside information on the housemates. The joggers will be put up for auction on OZtion (www.oztion.com.au) on the 7th of July for a duration of two weeks.
