Fundraiser: Pins for Australia

Hi friends,

There’s an initiative going on on Instagram called #MakersforAUS, where makers create charity items or run fundraisers to raise donations for charities helping those affected by the wildfires raging through Australia.

Below is a small selection of pins that feature animals who inhabit Australia. Everything in my shop is part of the fundraiser, but I wanted to feature a selection of Australia-themed ones 🙂

#MakersforAUS

Last year, lots of makers came together to raise donations for those affected by the devastating wildfires in the Amazon Rainforest. This January, makers of Instagram are once again joining forces to raise donations for those affected by the wildfires raging through Australia.

I decided to run this fundraiser, but there are tons more things going on! Be sure to check out the #MakersforAUS tag on Instagram for more charity pins, stickers and fundraisers 🙂

  • End of March/early April: preorders arrive at my place, and I begin quality assurance, packing and shipping.
