The horrible flooding happening in Australia is close to my heart. The Australian people have been a HUGE supporter of MerCurios. Not only do we have an amazing fan and customer base down under; thanks to the power of social media we have lots of friends there too! Some of whom came within meters of going under water.
That said, we designed special versions of our #1 selling Personalized Banner Ring specifically to help raise money for The Queensland Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal. This disaster relief fund assists the people and communities in North Eastern Australia who have been affected by the devastating floods.
The ring is available as an edgy, two-finger knuckle duster at a $40 retail OR a simple single finger wrap which retails for $35. Inspired by Queensland's Premier Anna Bligh's speech - the phrase "after the rain, enters the sun" is etched onto the rings in both English and Latin. In her speech, Anna Bligh says: "This weather may break our hearts...but it will not break our spirits", which captures the situation and spirit of the Australian people. I believe these rings capture the spirit of the people as well.
The rings (and many other generously donated items) can be found in the AusDisaterRelief shop on Etsy. 100% of the proceeds from each sale go to the The Queensland Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal. As of this post, AusDisaterRelief has already raised over $2,000!
