In the wake of the still-burning Australian bushfire crisis, we’re profiling our favourite fire-affected businesses from the instagram account @spendwiththem. Led by Turia Pitt and Grace McBride, the #spendwiththem movement shines a light on small, local businesses who need our support to rebuild and recover. Online shopping that makes a difference? Say no more.
We don’t need much excuse to partake in a Friday night tipple. Got the kids to bed before midnight? That deserves a G&T! But when that gin goes directly to work supporting bushfire victims while you sip, well, that’s a cause we can get behind.
The beautiful South Australian idyll of Kangaroo Island has been ravaged by bushfires, which are likely to continue in the coming weeks. Kangaroo Island Spirits is a family-run, craft distillery, creating artisan botanical gin, vodka and liqueurs. Unfortunately their production has been halted by the fires but owners Jon and Sarah are donating $10 from every bottle sold in January to the KI Bushfire Appeal. Cheers to that!
