Give a Hand to Help The Less Fortunate This Christmas...


Instead of filling the stocking with toys, socks and candy canes this Christmas, give a gift that will change the lives of the children of Thailand. In 2004, Christmas celebrations were cut dramatically short when an 8.9 magnitude earthquake trigged a tsunami that ripped through Thailand and devastated the landscape and lives of thousands. 

Peter Baines, an Australian forensic detective and a member of the response team in Thailand following the tsunami, saw the disastrous consequences first-hand – not only of the dead, but of those left behind. Peter was inspired to set up an organisation that could make a significant difference to the lives of these children – and thus, in October 2005, Hands Across The Water (Hands) was born.

Today, Hands is one of Australia’s fastest growing boutique charities, having raised over seven million dollars to support the children of Thailand.

Written by Peter Baines, Hands Across The Water is an autobiography of Peter’s career prior to the tsunami, his journey to Thailand and the establishment of Hands.

This inspiring tale of how one knockabout Aussie bloke changed the lives of thousands by simply offering a hand makes the perfect Christmas gift, serving as a reminder that one person can truly make a difference.

Hygiene Made Simple With the Simply Clean Range

It’s time to clean up your act when cleaning the house! For anyone who’s stopped to think whether the cloth they used to wipe the baby’s mouth after breakfast was the same one they used to clean the kitchen floor, Simply Clean will be a welcome relief.

A first of its kind in Australia, Simply Clean is a new and innovative company that specialises in a range of cleaning products designed to promote safe hygiene practices in the home and office, and help protect users from the risks of bacteria.

Created by mother of three, Victoria Fulford, the Simply Clean product range is divided into Kitchen, Bathroom and Microfibre Cloths. More specifically, each product is individually labelled and colour-coded to indicate which area and surface it is to be used for.

“I was at home with three kids under 17 months and watched the floor sponge being used to wipe our baby’s feeding tray, and I won’t tell you where I found the toilet sponge! I knew which sponge was being used for what but no one else did,” says Victoria.

The Kitchen and Bathroom packs include four individual products for wiping, absorbing, scrubbing and mopping. The Microfibre Cloths are categorised into kitchen, dusting, glass and stainless steel.

Simply Clean is the safe, hygienic way to keep cleaning simple.
