UPDATE 8/05/2020: Our re-stock of these pins is almost ready for release! On Tuesday the 12 of May we'll be releasing the re-stock, and all profits will be donated to Wildlife Victoria to support their ongoing work rehabilitating animals and habitat devastated in the bushfires. If you'd like to be notified don't forget to sign up to our out of stock notifications HERE.
It was incredibly sad watching the news and hearing the stories of those affected by the bushfires.
I had been wanting to do something more, so I created this special pin design with the help and feedback of the Jubly community.
We made this pin for all the real heroes of the bushfire crisis: Those working tirelessly to save lives, homes, land and wildlife.
The aim was to raise $10,000 to be donated to WIRES and the CFA but in less than 24 hours we had sold 2.5x that and managed to raise $25,000!!
The original pre-order sold out, but we will have more pins available in the second week of may (see 'Update' at beginning of this blog post) and we will be donating the profits to different charities. If you would like to be notified when these are available please sign up to our 'Back In Stock' notification on the product page HERE.
I want to thank everyone who purchased a pin for your support, and give another special thank-you for all the people who helped to spread the word on social media.
I created the pin because like many of you, I felt so helpless watching the devastation around the country. I just wanted to do something - anything to help.
We as a community have come together to raise this money. It honestly brought me to tears seeing people support this.
As so many people missed out I have created a FREE print of the design that anyone can download, print out and display.
Thanks again for all your support.
Tasha and the Jubly Crew.
P.S. We had originally planned to donate profits from the sale of the pins but due to friends and family volunteering to help pack orders and my Chinese factory helping by discounting our manufacturing of the pins allowed us to donate the full amount of the original pins sold! Hooray!
