Australia Needs our Help
By now I’m sure you’ve seen/heard about the Australia bushfires that have been devastating the area. It’s a disaster of enormous proportions and it effects so many – people, animals, the environment itself. Over half a billion animals have been affected. Entire towns have been reduced to burnt rubble. And to date, 28 people have lost their lives, including several volunteer firefighters.
One of my goals for 2020 is to create more fundraising opportunities using the platform I have built. I myself cannot always contribute large donations, however I can encourage others to join me in small charitable ways, helping to make a larger overall impact.
Helping in Small Ways
So on that note, today I am launching a Valentines Fundraiser to benefit relief efforts for the Australia bushfires. For a donation of just $10, you will receive a download for six adorable koala themed Valentines.
The download includes three files – two are B6 sized (5x7) Valentines cards, perfect for giving to a friend or tucking inside your planner. The other file is a smaller Valentine printable featuring four cards on one sheet, for easy cutting and folding. This is the perfect activity to do with your little one as the can color their valentines and personalize them for their friends. They also would make adorable bookmarks or ephemera for your planner.
