The last 6 months has been incredible and unbelievable in terms of the natural disasters that have been sweeping across Australia, New Zealand, and now Japan and the Pacific Rim.
The brand that our business promotes is Professionals as you know, but what you mightn’t know is the sense of belonging and family that our brand encapsulates. We won’t go into too much detail, but Professionals isn’t a franchise group, it’s a cooperative. There’s no owner or shareholders that make money out of the brand, so fundraising done by the brand relies on the people within the Professionals family.
We’re talking about an initiative called Professionals Unite, which has so far raised around $20,000 in a short space of time. To help get some funds together, we donated some hampers that were auctioned off at recent events in Melbourne and Brisbane.
Our “I Love Mudgee” Hampers consisted of Mudgee honey, Coco Blossom Sweet Pea Diffuser, Coco Blossom Luscious Body Butter, Coco Blossom Fuscia Lip Gloss & Mineral Brush, Andrew Harris 2006 Rosé, Wild Oats 2006 Chardonnay, Café 89 Mixed Berry Compote and Lomondo Olive Oil.
Not only did our hampers alone raise nearly $400, but they also helped locals here in Mudgee by promoting their products to the attendees of the events and of course the winners.
We’d like to thank everyone who has helped us put the I Love Mudgee hampers together. And to the people who have been affected by any of the floods, fires, earthquakes, cyclones or tsunamis, our hearts go out to you and we hope that any money we have helped raise towards Professionals Unite, helps rebuild your communities.
