May not be a bargain per se, though if you normally shop at Coles, you can make an extra donation by doing your shopping on Friday instead of some other day. I'm thinking their profit margin is significant so let's go and clean up their shelves this Friday by stocking up. Who knows, maybe Woolworths is forced into jumping onboard too? (they donated $1 mill that I know of)
I think it would be good if it's on the main page for awareness (Scotty, delete it if you don't agree), no need to have more then the minimum 5 votes either.
Mentioned here yesterday:
Shop on Friday and help support Victoria's bushfire victims
Coles is asking customers to plan their supermarket shop for this Friday (13 Feb), to help raise badly needed funds for the victims of the Victorian bushfires.
Coles, BiLo, Pick N.Pay and Coles Online are donating this Friday.s profits from all stores nationally to the Bushfire Appeal Fund, and hope to raise between two and four million dollars.
Australian Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal 2009
As WaywardOne has suggested, it can be more effective to donate directly to Australian Red Cross.
The 2009 Victorian Bushfire Fund to assist individuals and communities affected by devastating bushfires in Victoria has been launched by the Premier John Brumby in partnership with Red Cross and the Federal Government. A number of corporate organisations including NAB, ANZ, CBA and Wesfarmers have also contributed to the fund.
