Thank You and Sharing the Love (Including Last Minute Ways to Do it)

Its been an incredible first 6 months with all your support. Looking back, above the ability to share joys through our products, is being able to meet many of you who have many great ideas and opinions that enabled us to grow.

We want to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support, and look forward to seeing you all again in the New Year!!!

In the spirit of giving thanks, on Monday, we took a step back and decided to give back. We dropped in some gingerbread houses, tree and tree decorations to Knox Infolink.

 

 

 

 

 

Knox Infolink is a charity run by a small number of staff and an army of volunteers that distributes food and essentials, for people in Knox area who cannot afford them. Their hamper service is a lifesaver to households who are struggling, many through an unfortunate set of circumstances.

While they have now closed for donations for their hampers (mark November in your calendar next year for those who wish to contribute), there are still many last minute options available out there.

Last minute options for sharing:

  • Kmart Wishing Tree – Just pop in any Kmart and drop a toy/essentials to the Wishing Tree and get a tag for your Christmas tree at home. These are redistributed by charities. This is a great opportunity for kids to participate. They will gladly accept all new items – not just purchases from Kmart.
  • Salvation Army Donation – For those who cannot make it to a store physically you can donate cash which the Salvation Army can use to fund many projects across the country.
  • Volunteering – many organisations needs specific set of skills that can make a big difference. Some organisations that are looking for ongoing volunteers include Melbourne City Mission , Salvation Army , The Smith Family

We will be taking a short break for the festive season (returning on the 15th Jan 2017). In the meantime, stay safe and be kind to each other….
