It's that time again! The team at Pookipoiga and Nine Yaks are super excited to invite you, your friends, and your family to our annual fundraising and shopping event on May the 24th from 4-8pm. Our nominated charity is the wonderful One Voice (www.onevoice.org), who provide free showering and hygiene facilities for Melbourne's homeless, among many other wonderful services.
There are over 105000 homeless Australians, 28000 are under 24 and 17850 under 17. The figures are staggering. One Voice believes that restoring dignity is the first step to restoring people's lives, and with their newest edition; a mobile shower and laundry van powered by solar panels and natural gas, they can reach more homeless in the community and share some much needed love and support. It is something that everyone here at Pookipoiga believes is an absolutely fantastic cause, and want to throw as much support behind it as we can. As we feel so strongly about this, we already donate a meal to the homeless through OzHarvest with every purchase, but we want to do more!
We will be charging $10 entry at the door, which will be wholly donated to One Voice. Apart from the warm fuzzies, what do you get out of it? We will be supplying delicious food and drinks, and each person will also receive a raffle ticket on entry, for the chance to win 1 of 5 goodie bags! Yes, you read correctly - GOODIE BAGS. Some of our favourite makers have kindly donated some of their wonderful goodies to the cause. You will find Conscious Step, Raw Philosophy, Raw Integrity Chocolates, Nine Yaks, Sabine & Sparrow, Apiary Made and more!
If you get there at the right time, you’ll even be lucky enough to participate in the chocolate tastings run by Kristina from Raw Integrity Chocolates. And let us tell you, this is not something you want to miss! We can’t spill all our secrets, though, so you’ll just have to come along and see what else you can find.
In addition to the entry fee donation, in conjunction with Nine Yaks, we will also be donating 50% of their sales! Keep yourself warm for winter in Nine Yaks Cashmere, and give someone else that chance as well - winners all round!
It will be a wonderful night, with beautiful people, sharing the love with an outstanding local charity, that gives so much back to the community. We can’t wait to see you there for a good old yarn, lots of fun activities, yummy munchies, and to band together to help the wonderful One Voice.
RSVP here by 21st May.
Can't wait to see you there!
Love Pookipoiga, Nine Yaks and One Voice ox
