Save Koalas While You Fill Your Gift List

September is Save the Koala Month. While checking out the latest Australian Koala Foundation products I realised I could do a lot of seasonal shopping here while raising funds for one of my favourite foundations. I can also benefit my favourite charity Operation Christmas Child! Bonus!

So here's my plan. For my Christmas Shoe boxes I'll buy the new finger puppets (only $2) and some tattoos and stickers (50c). These would be perfect if you have to send gifts overseas as they are light, tiny and won't cost much to post.

Kids love tattoos.

Aren't these the cutest puppets?


For children I have my eye on a really attractive pencil case, a popping pen and the koala beanie. Older children might like to be sponsored to Adopt a Koala or to join the Koala Army.

Keep your head warm next winter.


I must confess to having mixed feelings about the Goolie goolie soother. It's a dummy with a koala attached.

Hmmm. Different!


For my 'hard to buy for' list I can purchase any number of useful items - soap, hand cream, hand towel and washer, matching apron, tea towel and oven mitt, a choice of two eco friendly shopping bags or I can sponsor them to Plant a Tree. This starts at $10 and you receive a certificate to give to the recipient.

Quandong is included in the ingredients, not koalas.

Classic, classy and useful too.

Shopping bags are always handy.


Other ways to help are to order a donation box for your workplace, host an event to raise funds or add a donation link to your email signature or web page.

AKF works to monitor and prevent loss of habitat on behalf of the koala population.
