Thank you for supporting Red Cross' Migrant Support Program.
Thank you to those who supported Brave Edith this Christmas. $30 from every piece of jewellery and every gift card sold in December will be donated to Australian Red Cross’ Migrant Support Program. This was Brave Edith’s third year of Christmas donations and I am thrilled that thanks to the support of our customers, we have been able to continue the initiative. These funds will be used to help migrants who are in urgent need of support for necessities such as groceries, transport and medicine.
Brave Edith jewellery was established in honour of my grandmother, Edith Scanlon, who fled war-torn Burma in 1942. Forced to trek hundreds of kilometres to India, she survived thanks to her own determination but also due to the kind help of others along the way. This is why the work of Australian Red Cross is close to my heart.
Edith’s journey is testament to the fact that life can be unpredictable and we all need both help and hope at times. At no time could this be more relevant as COVID-19 has placed extreme hardship on many migrants as well as the ongoing global conflicts and military rule in places like Burma that continue to displace people from their homes and countries.

So thank you again for your support and thank you to Australian Red Cross for always being there to help.
