Open letter to our customers,
I’m sure that you, like all of us at Koorong and Bible Society, are devastated at the extent and duration of the terrible bushfires burning across our nation. Our hearts go out to all those involved in fighting these fires and those affected by them, either directly or indirectly. Most of us have some connection with people impacted by the blazes.As a part of Bible Society Australia, Koorong will be supporting the efforts needed to help, both practically and spiritually. Bible Society has set up a relief fund and is seeking donations to support chaplains and re-resource churches in affected areas.
Our prayers go out to everyone affected, that they may have safety, comfort, and peace at this time. We thank God for rain and pray that rain will fall across the breadth of Australia extinguishing the fires and bringing relief for firefighters, community volunteers, people caught up in the fires and our wildlife and livestock. We pray for generosity of spirit and hospitality towards all those displaced from their homes. We pray for comfort and healing for all who suffer loss.
Koorong will directly support this fund by donating $1 for every customer who shops in-store and online on the 17th and 18th January. Additional donations can be made online here or in any of our stores.
