Australian Bushfire Fundraiser + KOALA Savior Nail Art Kits

RAISED TO DATE: AUD $2,423  GOAL: AUD $1,500

UPDATE - 05/01/2020: due to worsening catastrophic bushfires we are extending our fundraiser. The devastation across our beloved Australia is so horrific and vast, that there are simply not enough resources to help all those who desperately need them. So we have to ask you for help!

To raise the necessary funds we added I Just Want To Help kit where you can simply donate as little as $10. Right now every little bit counts, so please help with anything you can - Australia needs you!

The final amount collected and each sum donated to the nominated charities will be publicly available.

UPDATE - 11/02/2020: in total we have raised $2,423 and all funds have now been donated as below:

  • $750 to Port Macquarie Koala Hospital - receipt number: #1232231
  • $750 to WWF Bushfire Emergency Appeal - receipt number: #PAYID-LZBFLKA6TK124873L215673D
  • $923 to Port Stephens Koalas - receipt number: #25677

Our Koala Savior fundraiser has been now closed. However, we're currently working on a project that will allow us to provide ongoing support for wildlife. Stay tuned for all details revealed soon.

In the meantime, if you wish to help, please donate directly to any of the Wildlife hospitals (links below). Most are now accepting international donations as well.

The Limited Edition Koala Savior Nail Art Kits are here!

Right now Australia faces some of the most catastrophic bushfires the country has ever seen. At SoNailicious Boutique, we are greatly saddened by the loss of life and homes, as well as the injuries suffered in the bushfires. However, while trees burn, Australian wildlife suffers the most. As many as 8,400 koalas (updated, as of 10.01.2020) have perished in these fires, so much so, that they are now categorised as ‘functionally extinct’.

As the blue Sydney skies turned brown and toxic smoke engulfed the city, instead of falling into despair, I decided to act and do what I can to support to the most vulnerable. Of course, I could just donate myself but as an owner of a small, family business I doubt that my contribution would make much difference. Significant funds are needed to restore the forest and provide medical equipment for the injured wildlife.

So I came up with an idea to join our forces and support two organisations that protect wildlife in Australia - World Wildlife Fund Australia (WWF) and Port Macquarie Koala Hospital.

UPDATE: if we exceed our goal, we will also donate to Port Stephens Koalas and potentially to Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.

To raise the necessary funds I put together 3 Limited Edition Nail Art Kits:

    1. Freehand Warrior Nail Art Kit - perfect for freehand nail art lovers.
    2. Fast & Flawless Nail Art Kit - if you enjoy using SoNailicious stickers, this is the Kit for you!
    3. Insta Star Nail Art Kit - if you like daring manicures and enjoy showcasing your designs on Instagram, you will love this Kit.

All Nail Art Kits come with FREE shipping and 100% profits from the sale in equal shares will go towards WWF Bushfire Emergency Appeal and Koala Hospital.

As they say beauty will save the world, and I firmly believe that together, we, the powerful nail art warriors, can make a difference. So get your Nail Art Kit now, save 50%, and help to save the endangered koalas! Know that by purchasing this kit you’re supporting the unique Australian wildlife and contributing to restoring the forest, that is, after all, crucial for survival of both - humans and wildlife!

Nail art warrior, today is your chance to become a real Koala Savior, wherever you are in the world!
