Just before Covid struck, my kids and I set up a market stall at Bondi Beach (above) in Australia to sell bands we were making to plant trees. Then came lockdown and as a family we decided to use the time to make Bands of Courage a brand to inspire others, fight global warming and raise awareness of its impact on endangered animals.
Our market stall re-opened later in 2020 and blossomed with ideas like using a chalk board to keep score board of trees planted at each market. We created our 'Endangered animals gallery below.
Then in 2021 lockdown came again, and this time we decided to use the time to take Bands of Courage online which, given our technical naivety, is an even greater challenge. August 2021, and we are launching on Facebook!
We want to thank everyone who has supported us and continues to support us. We are doing our best to find ways through this technological jungle to meet our goal of planting a million trees by 2025, we hope.
