Art for Bushfire Relief

I am very proud to report that our little business raised a big bunch of funds to assist with Bushfire Relief.

We started a crowfunding campaign on January 15th with the support of our friends at Pozible (who waived 100% of their fees)

We donated our A2 size Melbourne Map and a series of gorgeous wildlife illustrations by the talented Lewis Brownlie – a full list of all the businesses that donated their products and services are listed below.

Here’s a roundup of how the campaign went and donations made on your behalf.

FINAL UPDATE ON THE “ART FOR BUSHFIRE RELIEF” CAMPAIGN

Whilst the enormous impact of the recent bushfires moves off our news headlines, the struggles that our fellow Australians and Wildlife are experiencing are still present and real.

We are grateful for all the support of our Art for Bushfire Relief campaign in an effort to help in some way.

February was a busy month for us, working hard behind the scenes to produce and deliver all the rewards that were ordered.

We’ve received some wonderful feedback from our supporters and we’re so pleased you are enjoying The Melbourne Map and beautiful Wildlife prints.
