Beach to Bush Fundraising Calendar 2019
Order Now to get yours to welcome in 2019!
The Beach to Bush Calendar is a fund raising initiative by the ladies of the Carinda Sewing Group, whose local communities are devastated by Australia's worst drought in 400 years. The Walgett/Carinda is one of the hardest hit, without viable rain for more than 4 years. This area once was a thriving cattle, cotton and sheep farming area. But not any more. And it's taking its toll.
Local charities do their bit to support and assist but as this drought's grip tightens, further help is needed to get everyone through. The Carinda Sewing Group live and breathe the fall out from this drought every, single day and now they are putting themselves out there to do more.
The girls have set a fundraising goal of $100,000. Much needed money to go straight to Drought Angels and local charities who do so much to help their communities. Charities who have helped before, during and they know, long after this drought has broken.
100% of the profits made from the sale of this Calendar will go straight to charities who help in the area. No overheads or red tape. The girls would like to gratefully acknowledge those who have given their time and resources to make this happen.
- The talented Sue Currey, a Walgett local who took the amazing photos in between keeping her own property going
- Viv and the team from Calendar Print for the design, graphics and printing; they specialise in producing community calendars
- Anita from Sequins and Sand for the fitting and donating of the swimwear the girls are wearing and for assisting with help to bring it to life and Ernestine Lavalle working with Anita to promote it.
This Calendar is by a group of dedicated local women who see the need and are putting themselves out there to do more.
In true Aussie spirit, they're digging deeper to help others. If you'd like to know more about how it came to be, click here for the story. In true bush style, its a doozy!
They are hoping the reason this Calendar was done will resonate with you and that you might help them to help others during this shocking time. A great Christmas gift. A gift just because from the heart. Maybe you'd like to put the Calendar in your shop or place of work and help sell more!
Orders are being taken here and co-ordinated by Sequins and Sand with the Carinda Sewing Group, who will post them out to you with a hell of a lot of gratitude and thanks.
For the love of a place and its people.
Orders within Australia will be sent by Australia Post Express Post satchel (goods arrive the next business day, to many parts of Australia). We previously used Standard Mail satchel (goods sent as regular mail to all parts of Australia) but the service became too slow sadly.
Express Post within Australia
This service will be the fastest way we can get your order to you. It is supposed to ensure Next Business Day Delivery, however allow 2 days for WA and NT locations and 2-3 days if you are outside the Next Day Delivery Network. You can find out if you are in the Network here.
The fees are defined by satchel size:
- 0-500g = $11.50
- 500g and over = $15
- Spend over $150 = FREE!
Using Express Post means that parcels get there faster, but they are only insured up to a value of $50. They are however, able to be tracked.
We also ship internationally. Find out more »
Shopping on line can be tricky and it's an art to always hit the mark. We are more than happy to exchange, create a store credit or refund if what you have bought (unless it's a Clearance item), sadly just isn't right.
We'll even pay for the Return shipping!
