For the months of November and December, jewellery brand, Brave Edith, is donating $30 for each piece of jewellery purchased online to Australian Red Cross' Emergency Relief Program for Migrants. The donations are part of an overall desire of the founder of Brave Edith, Stephanie Sieber, to create more meaningful jewellery - jewellery that makes you feel good, and jewellery that does good.
As one of around 500,000 people who fled Burma during WW2, Edith was part of the largest refugee migration at that time. She trekked for over 300 kilometres through rugged terrain, fighting extreme heat and exhaustion to reach the safety of India. She survived thanks to both her own determination and the generous help of others along the way.
Now, over 75 years later, Burma is again at the centre of a refugee crisis. It is important we recognise that life can change quickly and no matter how secure we are now, there may be a time when we urgently need the help of others. There is always need for compassion.
The funds raised by Brave Edith will be used to help asylum seekers, refugees and migrants in Australia who are in urgent need of financial and material support for life's necessities such as groceries, transport vouchers and essential medicines.
As we lead up to peak buying season with Black Friday sales and Christmas shopping, it feels like it is time to make the season more about giving and less about just buying.

It’s an understatement to say that life is getting a little simpler these days. We’ve had to learn how to deal with life’s restrictions and to make the most of simple pleasures. And while we are definitely buying more online and in places like Melbourne, “click and collect” is a wonderful excuse to leave the house, perhaps now is the time to start to spend more wisely.
With that in mind, it seems fitting to share some suggestions on how to create a wardrobe that you can keep looking fresh, rather than constantly replace.
