When my friend asked if I could help in asking our community to support the emergency services and natural disaster communities I jumped at the chance.

The WANDS (Wellness Advocate National Disaster Support) has done an amazing job so far in supplying kits for the communities that have been devastated through the effect of the fires across our beautiful Country.

doTerra AUNZ has donated over $100,000 in products for WANDS to distribute to the affected communities. All the kits assembled were delivered to individuals and evacuation centres in those areas most affected by the bushfires including Kingscote Oval on Kangaroo Island, Bateman Bay, Mallacoota, and even Tasmania.

It is so amazing to see so many people come together to give their time to helping and donating. We can make such a big impact with such a small simple gesture by buying a pack of tissues next time you do your groceries or by getting the kids to get creative and draw a picture on a card with a message to brighten someone’s day.

It also teaches our children the importance of showing care and compassion. As an idea put a few tea bags in a decorated card and send as we all know what it’s like to take 5 with a nice cuppa. We have a great community spirit here on Bribie so let’s come together and show our support for those affected by the recent devastating fires.

If you would like to provide kits and/or support please please find us on Facebook (Search for: Bribie Island WANDS Emergency Kits) or contact Selina Whetlor on 0425 634 234.
