Black Friday lands on us in late November with a deluge of advertising in every possible medium, enticing us to buy now and apparently offering once in a lifetime deals.
If you’d rather have a calm approach to some ethical retail therapy, have a look at our newsletter published this morning for some ideas, with links to our supporters.
For example, Tumbleweed Tees are calling it Donation Friday and sharing 10% of today’s sales with all their conservation partners!
There are a couple of wonderful local supporters that were missed off the newsletter, so apologies and special mention goes to local author/illustrators who make a donation for every penguin book sold:
Jeanette Goode for her wonderful ‘A Little Blue’ book, which you can find online and in good book stores: https://jeanettegoode.co.nz/product/a-little-blue/
“A Little Blue is a hand-illustrated picture book loved by children of all ages. It is particularly relevant for reluctant readers as Jeanette has drawn the pictures to tell a slightly different and deeper story. It is a tale of love and the arresting power of nature.”
Janet Gawn for her delightful Sandy Silkywings adventure with blue penguins, now available at Take Note in Hokitika:
“Sandy Silkywings, a house fairy who lives on the West Coast of the South Island in Hokitika” – and meets a blue penguin on one of her adventures. For younger children.
See our post on facebook about both.
