On Friday 28 February, Collette’s CEO, Dan Sullivan Jnr announced a donation of $20,000 AUD from the company to the Kangaroo Island Native Plant Nursery to enable it to meet the demand for habitat restoration with seedlings of Kangaroo Island provenance to be planted in bush fire-affected areas. A family-owned company with offices in the USA, Canada and Australia, Collette recently celebrated the fifth anniversary of the opening of its Australian office.
This donation complements two other donations made to assist Australia with bushfire recovery, the first being to the Australian Red Cross to support people, the second to the koala sanctuary to assist wildlife and this new third donation to assist habitat.
Blair Wickham, Kangaroo Island resident and tour guide from Exceptional Kangaroo Island was in Sydney to meet with Dan Sullivan and to accept the donation on behalf of the nursery. The donation was offered by the organisation in solidarity with the Kangaroo Island community.
Momentum2 was pleased to facilitate Collette's introduction to the Kangaroo Island Native Plant Nursery management team, as well as working closely with the partners involved in Kangaroo Island, as well as managing media surrounding the donation announcement.
