Samantha Wills: Shop For a Cause

There's not much I can post here about the QLD floods that you haven't already read.

My take: absolutely devastated for the flood victims. I know of some people who have been confirmed dead as the flood swept through Toowoomba a few days ago.

If you want to donate (um... you have a beating heart and are made of flesh and blood... so why wouldn't you?), go here: http://www.qld.gov.au/floods/

A good friend of mine works for the Red Cross and shared some info yesterday: he says that the Red Cross produced a 3000-bed evacuation centre in a single day. These people are gods, in my opinion.

Businesses too are trying to help in whatever way they can.

I just got an email advising that jewellery designer Samantha Wills will donate $20 from every selected piece sold on the SAMANTHA WILLS website to the flood appeal over the next four days, with hopes to raise a minimum of $10,000.

“Since hearing the breaking news of communities being destroyed and lives being lost, I knew I had to do something to help. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this horrifying disaster,” says Samantha.

Selected products for the appeal will also be discounted by 30% to encourage customers to shop for the worthy cause.

  1. This is such a great cause! I work for a company called Uptown Liz, which was created in memory of the founder’s 28 year old sister, Liz, who died from breast cancer. Uptown Liz (www.uptownliz.com) promotes products from companies whose proceeds go to different charitable organizations. You can shop on this one-of-a-kind website by charitable cause or product category, knowing that every time you make a purchase you are making a difference. There are many great art, clothing, jewelry, house wares, beauty and eco-friendly products (just to name a few) that benefit charities all over the world.

  2. Thanks so much, "anonymous" - this is great stuff! I love shopping with a conscience... x
