Over recent weeks we have heard about the devastation caused by the Australian bush fires directly from our friends and partners in North South Wines, De Bortoli Wines and Paxton Wines. We are extremely sad to see many of the places we have visited destroyed, including Kangaroo Island. It is upsetting to see such apocalyptic images but heart-warming to read about local people pulling together to help each other and the animals around them.
To do our little bit to help at North South Wines we are donating 25% of net profit from all Australian wines sales from the 1st of January to the 31st of March 2020 to the following 2 charities:
Australian Red Cross: Since July, the Australian Red Cross has assisted more than 18,600 people affected by the fires. The organization is currently supporting thousands of people in evacuation centres and recovery hubs.
Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park: At the same time as defending the park from the immediate threat of fire, the park team have built infrastructure to house and treat a large number of injured Koala’s and native species.
