Watching our beautiful country, its people and its animals in pain during the devastating Australian bushfires earlier this year is something none of us will forget.
Like so many others who came together to help, we wanted to show our support and love to the people and wildlife experiencing their darkest hours. We came up with the idea to create a product exclusively for the Australian Bushfire appeal and donate 100% of the sales.
And so, esmi Rose Oil was born!
Making it happen was a huge team effort, we got our esmi Strawberry and Rose Oil on our site. Our amazing team of suppliers from around the world came together and donated their time, talents, and materials to develop this very special product for a very special cause.
With the help of our awesome esmi Skin Minerals community, we’re proud to say we raised a massive $81,0016.65! Everyone who got behind this cause, thank you SO much.
We wanted to give an update on how the funds were distributed - we split donations evenly between the following 3 organisations:
Donated: $27,005.55 to CWA of NSW's Disaster Relief Fund.
The CWA is the largest women's organisation in Australia and aims to improve conditions for country women and children. CWA is involved in lobbying for change, helping the local community, creating a network of support and meeting together in towns and cities. CWA of NSW's Disaster Relief Fund is used to assist people in need.
Donated: $27,005.55 to Wildlife Victoria Bushfire appeal
Wildlife Victoria has provided the community with a Wildlife Emergency Response service for 30 years. Their mission is to help and protect wildlife through rescue, education, and advocacy activities. Wildlife Victoria responds to community reports of distressed wildlife and facilitates the care needed. They also promote community knowledge and care of wildlife and advocate for the protection and welfare of wildlife.
WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.) has been rescuing and caring for wildlife for over 30 years and is the largest wildlife rescue organisation in Australia.
Donations WIRES help rescue and care for more native animals, provide more wildlife information and education to the community, to protect and preserve native animals and to train and support more volunteer rescuers and carers.
Let’s not forget that there are still so many people and animals with a long road of healing ahead. From the esmi team, thank you for purchasing Rose Oil to show your support!
