We can’t gather at the moment to raise funds for our work out west. Yet there are many country communities still struggling from the devastating effects of drought, fire, floods and now Coronavirus travel and work restrictions.
Many of us are shopping online now for groceries, clothes, gifts and other necessary (and not so necessary) things. Have you thought of buying products from the Bush?
There is a wonderful website and Facebook campaign, Buy from the Bush, which will link you to hundreds of local rural businesses – www.buyfromthebush.com.au
But the MADOW team have curated a selection for you to support, from towns and communities we know from our travels in western NSW. We’ve even given some thought to products that will warm you in winter.
We invite you to visit these sites and purchase something handmade or local produced and support Rural NSW.
Generally shipping costs are $8-$10 flat fee or free shipping for larger orders.
It’s easy! The products are lovely! The support is so appreciated!
The list of sites follows. Thank you from Making A Difference Out West.
