brands supporting northern rivers

It isn't a bold assumption that everyone has been touched by footage of the Northern Rivers flooding. Heartbreaking scenes of families losing their home, livelihood and spirits have been broadcasted across the country, bringing home the message of struggle these flood-effected communities are facing. As is in the Australian spirit of mateship, many brands are supporting Northern Rivers flood victims through charity drives, donating profits and assisting with the clean up if locally based. Here, we've rounded up a selection of brands supporting Northern Rivers flood-impacted communities you can shop or donate to today.
