Well life here at phil&teds can be a bit like that! Sales Manager Alicia, star of previous blog is not back on the road, but she did roll up her sleeves to dig out product that we can donate back to the community under our phil&thropic programme Buggies for Good!
We believe in giving back, that’s why we’re re-developing our phil&thropic campaign! We’ve been appealing for buggy donations from phil&teds and Mountain Buggy owners via our Facebook page; and we’ve had a GREAT response… you’ll be able to see the stories of our generous gems on our website real soon!
Last week, thanks to Alicia’s grafting, we were able to donate two Bam! prams to our friends at Wellington Hospitals and Health Foundation. We’ve had a relationship with this lovely lot for a few years now and continue to share the love.
Just this week, we read the amazing story of ‘House of Grace’ in the Wellington Dominion Post and we were itching to help out! It’s a home for pregnant teens, providing support and education up to and after the birth of their baby. We took bits & bobs from a number of injured buggies to recreate three Mountain Buggies and two phil&teds travellers in wich we donated to ‘House of Grace’… They do GREAT work and are currently raising funds for a new mini bus. They are also running for Kiwi Battler (you can vote for them online!). Check it out here.
Wowsa! That’s a whole lotta giving, and we LOVE it! If you want to find out more about our phil&thropic programme please contact [email protected]
