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.

Update(12/01): Over £1000 worth of donations raised in total! (over 1,800 AUD)

One-Week Fundraiser

From January 10th, 6pm GMT to January 17th, 6pm GMT, I will be making the following donations to Wildlife Victoria:

  • 100% of digital download profits (the only expense is the PayPal/Stripe transaction fee)
  • 20% of the entire sum of physical orders from my shop (including preorders, excl. shipping charge).

The following enamel pins (and pendant) are up for preorders (April delivery) and will continue to serve as Charity Pins for Australia even after the fundraiser ends:

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 🙂

I will keep adding to these throughout the fundraiser. 100% of profits from digital downloads will be donated.

The only expense deducted from your donation is the payment portal fees + potential conversion rate fees.

#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 🙂

Project Timeline & Updates

Update Blog

I will keep everyone posted on the pin production process through my Update Blog, accessible at www.evybenita.com/update-blog.

Timeline

  • The fundraiser runs from Jan 10th, 2020 – Jan 17, 20202.
  • The enamel pin and pendant preorders will stay live on my website until February 4th.
  • I will place the pin and pendant order on February 6th(my manufacturer is closed for Chinese New Years until Feb 6th).
  • End of March/early April: preorders arrive at my place, and I begin quality assurance, packing and shipping.
  • April: all orders shipped.

*The timeline might change if delays in production occur, but I have tried to account for this by adding a bit of wiggle-room.

Thank You!
