Disaster and Charity

The last few days has seen the community come together, dig deep to help out 2 causes that I am very passionate about.

For the last 4 years, Geocaching Victoria has been fundraising to help out several teams taking part in the Oxfam Trailwalker event by releasing a special geocoin. This year, in light of the bushfire disaster that is currently happening in the east and north east of Victoria, Geocaching Victoria have decided to make this years coin a dual charity coin. All profits from the sale of this coin will be split 50/50 between The Oxfam Trailwalker Teams and the Victorian Bushfire Appeal. The Victorian Government has partnered with Bendigo Bank and The Salvation Army to establish the Victorian Bushfire Appeal.

I am immensely proud of my community who have come together as one and without prompting have shown their support by pre purchasing one of these beautifully designed geocoins. (Thanks Darren – Omegaman Designs)

If you have not ordered a coin yet, please dig deep, there is still time, just head to the Geocaching Victoria Store and place your order.

 

Thank you all once again,

Cache on.
