Some nights you watch the news and it hits you like a truck, just how tough some of our fellow humans have it in contrast to others, especially here in the lucky country. With heartbreak though comes a call to action.
At Norte we live for adventure, fun and kindness, things that might seem out of reach when what you need are the basic essentials to live. Our Amigo range is about promoting kindness and friendship, so $5 from the sale of every Amigo Tank this summer will go straight to Save the Children and their critical work helping the Rohingya people.
Violence has forced more than 620,000 Rohingya people to flee from Myanmar to neighbouring Bangladesh. More than half the refugees – upwards of 350,000 - are children.
Save the Children is on the ground providing food, water and shelter, safe spaces for children, and hygiene kits to stop disease spreading among already vulnerable people. They are also helping to reunite unaccompanied children with their families.
You don't need to buy an Amigo tank to support this very important cause, you can head straight to the website and make a small donation, knowing that this organisation does amazing things with those funds! #wecanbeamigos.
