Cards for the bush is doing fantastic work in raising awareness of those who have lost their homes and businesses due to the devastating fires across Australia.
To show our appreciation of their efforts, we are making contributions to some families who have lost everything. By sending an e-gift card, with a personalised message of support, we believe this is an excellent way to support affected individuals and local businesses.
Taken from their page, here is what you can do to help:
1. CONNECT. Identify a member of the community who has been affected by the bushfire crisis. This could be a family member or friend of yours, or you could reach out to your community for suggestions.
2. SUPPORT. Purchase an e-gift card from a local business in that person’s area. You might already know a local business you would like to support, or you can do some of your own research. Further ideas are provided on our FB and Instagram pages.
3. CARE. Write a thoughtful message and email on the e-gift card to your chosen individual.
4. SHARE. Post a picture of your e-gift card, or a link to the local business on your social media pages with the hashtag #cardsforthebush
By doing so you’ll be giving a much needed virtual hug to an Aussie who really needs it and you’ll be boosting the local economy. Plus, an e-gift card is environmentally friendly (no paper, plastic or petrol required in its delivery).
