As a nation, we are facing the horrific devastation that the 2019/2020 bushfires season is having on our beautiful country. We are so lucky in Brisbane that no one from our team at PDT has been directly affected by the devastation of the bush fires, however, we're watching from afar feeling helpless, seeing the tragic impact on our fellow people, innocent animals, and our beautiful land. The scale and intensity of Australia’s bushfires have shocked people around the globe, prompting an outpouring of help and support.
When the chips are down and adversity is knocking on our doors, we Aussies know firsthand that banding together and uniting as one is what we do best. And right now, our Nation is counting on us. While many team members at PDT Architects have donated to various charities from their own pockets over the past few weeks, the office banded together to host a morning tea with all proceeds raised by the team to be matched by the company.
On Thursday the 16th of January, the team gathered in the boardroom with yummy homemade treats like healthy fruit platters, Koala Cupcakes and Chocolate Chip Cookies at the cost of a donation to the appeal. Not only was it a wonderful way for the team to catch up over a cuppa after the Christmas break, but it was also all for a good cause raising much-needed funds for bushfire relief. Money raised from the morning tea has been divided and donated equally between the Red Cross, Qld Rural Fire Service, and Wildlife Victoria.
