Bushfire Appeal: 5% of Print Jobs Donated to Rural Fire Service QLD
Share this article:
Along with the rest of Australia and, indeed, the world, we’ve been devastated by the bushfires ravaging the nation these past few months.
An estimated 5.9 million hectares of land has been burned resulting in a significant loss of homes, properties, businesses, livestock, native flora, fauna and human lives.
To give the size of these fires some perspective, the massive California Wild Fires in 2018 burned approximately 765,000 hectares, and the 2019 Amazon Rainforest fires that burned from January until October, burned through approximately 906,000 hectares – these Australian fires were enormous!
Our heartfelt thoughts go to those impacted by this disaster, so, we want to do our part to assist those who are providing life-saving support, relief and recovery on the ground.
So we have chosen Rural Fire Service QLD and will be donating 5% of the value of any new print job until 29th February 2020 to this appeal.
There is no urban fire service coverage in rural, semi-rural and some urban fringe areas of Queensland. The Rural Fire Service (RFS) is the volunteer side of the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES), and provides fire services to 93% of Queensland.
How can you help us help the bushfire relief efforts?
- We will donate 5% of the total value of any new digital print, standard off-set and wide format print jobs
- Previously quoted jobs are eligible if you proceed with these requirements before the close off date
- Note – not applicable for Promo Gear or merchandise orders
- For your donation to be eligible: your invoice must be issued and paid in full by the end date of 29/02/19.
If you haven’t yet ordered your regular business printing for this month, have a print job upcoming or haven’t yet been able to donate to RFS QLD – please consider submitting your print work to us so we can maximise our donation.
We will post the final total donated, and images of us presenting the RFS QLD with the donation cheque, on our socials and website during March.
Please share this fundraising effort with your friends and family who may need print. The more jobs, the bigger the donation!
