Two Bundaberg sisters are sharing the love during COVID-19 restrictions with a campaign aimed to keep connections and positivity strong.
Angela Kirk,18 and Summer O’Donnell, 22, have been producing “Share the Love” screen-printed patches through their business, Freedom Shirts.
“Our business has been operating since February last year, offering screen-printing services to individuals, groups or other businesses wanting custom shirts,” Angela said.
“Our Share the Love campaign is about sharing the love to your friends and family during social distancing.
“You buy a Share the Love cotton patch from our website and we send it straight to your loved ones.”
Angela said the aim of the campaign was to help residents send a bit of love to those who were stuck at home.
“We came up with this idea because we have seen a lot of social media posts about how people are connected online,” she said.
“But we thought this would be a great idea to allow people to connect a little differently and actually have something physical that they can hold on to.
“It’s about connecting people on a physical level, making them feel less isolated while also keeping to social distancing rules.”
Angela said the Share the Love cotton patches would not only help spread positivity, part of the sales would also raise funds for frontline workers.
“In buying these patches you’ll be helping raise funds for relief packages for our frontliner workers who are working with COVID-19,” she said.
“Just order through our website and we will send the 100 per cent cotton fabric Share the Love patch along with a little message of positivity straight to your recipients mailbox.
“The message will let them know that they have received some love and that they are being thought of.”
A Share the Love patch costs $4 with 50 cents from each patch going towards frontliner workers.
