And buying with intention is a small way to start. For every piece you buy from Brave Edith, we give $30 to Australian Red Cross’ Emergency Relief Program for Migrants.
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 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 generosity and care of others along the way.
For the second year, Brave Edith is very proud to be able to offer support to Australian Red Cross and its Emergency Relief Program to help migrants in urgent need of assistance. Needless to say, it’s been a tough 2020 for most of us however for many migrants in Australia, it has been even tougher.
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 medicine.
