Madelinetosh Pledges Funds for Australian Fire Relief Efforts

Fort Worth, TX - (January 9, 2020) Madelinetosh, a producer of hand-dyed luxury yarn, announced they will be donating funds to Wildlife Rescue South Coast (www.wildlife- rescue.org.au), an experienced wildlife rescue group in South East NSW, which has been operating since the late 1980s. Wildlife Rescue South Coast’s primary aim is to rescue and rehabilitate injured and orphaned native wildlife to eventually release them back to the wild.

To kick off the relief efforts, Madelinetosh will donate 25% of sales from their “To Australia, With Love” yarn, in bold blue, green and brown colors of planet Earth. This limited color is available in Tosh Merino Light, a superwash merino fingering weight, and Pashmina, a sport weight in superwash merino, silk, and cashmere and is a perfect match with Melanie Berg’s “Caress My Soul” shawl pattern with 50% of her sales going to her charities of choice, New South Wales Rural Fire Service and the Victorian Country Fire Authorities.

“The news and imagery of the devastation in Australia is shocking and heartbreaking. It is about doing something, anything we can...now. Our friend, Melanie Berg didn’t hesitate for one second to donate proceeds from one of her patterns to help. I am so grateful for our giving maker community. There are so many organizations out there that need help, I wish we could support them all.” says Laura Zander, CEO of Madelinetosh.

Madelinetosh “To Australia, With Love” yarn is available in Tosh Merino Light, $28.50 per skein and in Pashmina $37 per skein at www.madelinetosh.com. Melanie Berg’s Caress My Soul pattern is available for purchase on at www.Ravelry.com with proceeds going to her selected charities until January 19th.
