OMG! I could not believe it when I checked our sales this morning. At the time or writing, we have sold 86 Bushfire Kangaroo APC’s. In less than 24 hours, you amazing people have raised an incredible $4,300 USD (over $6000 AUD).
I am absolutely blown away with the generosity and good will of the wonderful Miniature Hobby community. I can only say ‘Thank you, thank you, thank you’ with all my heart, to everyone who has purchased, donated, shared or told their friends about our ‘little’ fundraiser.
I started this yesterday with 150 Kangaroo APC’s on hand, thinking it would be more than enough to easily get us through to the end of the month. I am delighted to have been completely wrong.
Looking at how to keep going forward with this, I have just had a talk with our brilliant casting experts at Trench Worx in Utah. Creating hand cast resin kits is a time-consuming process. Yet, these lovely folks, have committed to doing everything they can to keep the fundraiser going. I can’t thank our US friends enough, for the passion, skills, extra time and resources they are happily contributing. It would not be possible without them.
So, please everyone, keep sharing, keep supporting. We are deeply moved by what you have achieved. We also are a little overwhelmed, but bear with us, we are doing all we can to get orders shipped and enquiries answered asap.
I will look at getting the initial collected funds transferred to the RSPCA early next week. I will keep everyone informed as we go.
