Northern Rivers Flood Appeal- WIN a huge tea collection!
We have been a little quiet these past few weeks as the community here works together to clean up and start healing after the trauma of the massive floods that hit the region in late February. Thank you to all our awesome customers and suppliers who have been checking in- we love you!
The streets in the towns of Lismore, Mullumbimby, Wardell, Coraki, South Golden Beach and Murwillumbah are still just piles and piles of rubbish- people have literally been left with nothing. The stench that wafts through some towns is unbearable and there are so many harrowing stories from those who were waiting to be rescued coming out. There is a deep collective sadness in the community but the love and care that people have shown is nothing short of incredible.
The road that lies ahead is a long one for many. There is a lot of rebuilding, help and assistance that will be needed in the coming months. Many of you have been asking us how you can help. If you don’t live locally and can’t physically lend a hand in the efforts to clean up and support the volunteers, we can suggest a few ways that you might be able to help.
If you can help financially, we would ask you to support our fundraiser with all proceeds going to Resilient Byron. This is a local organisation that’s coordinating the community-led flood response and serving the Northern Rivers with 100% of funds going straight back into the community care and critical crisis operations. We love this organisation and what they are doing!
We will be providing our TEA WARMER COLLECTION of 10 of our favourite BBTC teas (over 1000 cups of tea!) as the prize, valued at $492.50. Tickets to go in the draw will be $20 each and available to purchase on our online store with shipping included to anywhere within Australia. The winner will be drawn on Wednesday 6th April.
The TEA WARMER COLLECTION will include a tin of the following teas-:
T&Cs: Australian residents only. This fundraiser is in no way endorsed or sponsored by Instagram or Facebook. Entries will be closed at 11:59 pm AEDT on the 5th of April. The winner will be announced/notified on Wednesday 6th of April.
For those of you who may not be able to assist financially, your positive thoughts for our community are welcome and do make a difference!
