Maybe you want to leave your lunch tomorrow.
Bunnings Warehouse organizes a national sausage sauce on Friday (February 15) to raise money for those affected by the flooding in Queensland and the Tasmanian forest fires.
Shops across the country show support for the Townsville tidal wave while the Tasmanian team goes behind the forest fires.
There is no better way to involve the Australian public, and then by having a real blue Aussie barbecue (as long as the onion stays on the bottom).
Bunnings works together with GIVIT that directs money for those who need it most in affected communities.
GIVIT Founder and director Juliette Wright is currently in Townsville and offers a helping hand to families who are affected.
“Frontline services, charities and advisors tell us what people need and we ask generous Australians to fulfill that need,” Juliette told 9Honey Kitchen.
The donations received on this day go to critical and immediate support for residents affected by the floods and long-term support to restore their homes.
“It’s about making sure that people in need get exactly what they need when they need it, if a mother who has a newborn baby and is a year old and can not afford an electric kettle,” adds Juliette.
“We concentrate on essential items, safety equipment and cleaning equipment because they are still in an early phase of recovery”.
The Bunnings team has guaranteed that 100% of the money will go to crisis and will ensure that a long term is achieved.
Bunnings have a history of supporting local communities with forest fires and flood assistance. In August last year the warehouse chain ran the buy-a-bale campaign aimed at delivering necessary articles to farmers in need.
Go to your local Bunnings between 9 am and 4 pm tomorrow, where the staff will have everything going on and will man the pliers for all your worst-sizzle needs.
