Like you, Pedestrain has been deeply saddened by the flood situation in Queensland and greatly moved by the resilience and poise shown by those affected. And though the clean up is now underway the citizens of Queensland still need our help! With that in mind Pedestrian is launching our very own Flood Relief Auction with generous donations from our friends in music, fashion, art and sport. Throughout the next fortnight we’ll be posting daily auction items including money can’t buy products and experiences from some of the biggest names in Australian pop culture. If you would like to donate any items for our auction please email neha@pedestriangroup.com.au. Give generously guys, every dollar counts. With love, Pedestrian.
