Xgen Products has teamed up with three of their trusted Australian partners, to help with the recent brushfires that have devastated the country. From now until February 29, 2020, Xgen Products will donate 10% of all sales through Calvista, LonBrook, and Windsor Wholesale to the Australian Red Cross.
“The brushfires in Australia have had an impact on the entire country, not just the New South Wales region,” says Andy Green, President of Xgen Products. “We have some of the best partners and customers in Australia, and wanted to help in any way we could.”
The Australian Red Cross provides emergency assistance, psychosocial first aid, and practical support, as well as greets people evacuated by air and sea, and helps to reconnect families. They also carry out recovery assessments and in Victoria distribute food and water. Their teams were on ground in multiple locations across New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. In New South Wales more than 90 Red Cross personnel supported people at 61 evacuation centres. In Victoria, more than 130 Red Cross personnel worked in emergency relief centres and the operations centre.
“It’s exciting that all three of our partners stepped up without question,” adds Green. “I know they’ll do a great job promoting our brands, so the more sales we have, the more we donate!”
As of this week, the Australian brushfires have claimed the lives of over half a billion animals and have set over 25 million acres ablaze. To put that in perspective, these brushfires are about 80 times the size of the deadly California wildfires of 2019.
