Give a Brighter Future

So our story goes a lot like this,

Some time back, in grade 1: girl meets boy, doesn't think too much of him.  Years go by, fun and trouble to be had, and now grade 10 is a different story... girl falls in love with boy. Luckily boys falls in love back. They can't get enough of each other and by grade 12 they have a precious little daughter and their whole worlds have changed.....

Fast forward 12 years, a wedding, and 2 more lovely little daughters. Girl and boy have found their mission.
And now they need a little bit of help from you!


This is us, Nicole and Bryce.
And this is our mission:
Together we want to ensure that a beautiful world is still available to our children and their children and all the children of the furture. This is not something that will happen on its own. We beleive everybody needs to play their part.

This is our part..
Together gather the old and broken furniture, before it goes on the verge and to the tip, and we create.
We create unique, artistic, and enduring furniture that has a positive impact on the planet and all its inhabitants  <3
We pour so much of ourselves into each peice that when you have a one in your home, it evokes a feeling of love and connection, to the earth, to nature, to each other <3

Here is a before and after example

We think it vital to make this work on a larger scale, and we have chosen a beautiful lady, who really knows her stuff, to coach us for 12 months. We beleive she will get us to that place from where we can have the biggest impact, enabling be us to really leave the world a better place for us having been here. But it comes at a financial cost and the finances arent there for us yet, which is where we are asking you guys to step in, help us do this now beacause if we don't, there will be a far greater cost to the environment.

According to the Australian Bureau of statistics we generate 2100kgs of waste each, every year. That is equivalent about 140 bedside tables each!! Or 289,318,960 bedside tables for Perth alone!
Our Landfill systems are quickly reaching capacity all over our towns and cities (where are we going to put the next ones!!!) and they produce potentially hazardous substances which can impact on air, water and land quality.

We've done the math and figured that we only need 1000 beautiful people to gift us $12 each. $12 is nothing in most peoples pocket today, but we could accept it graciously and make it something huge, and beneficial for all <3

Re-using materials rather that buying new.....
Prevents pollution and environmental destruction, by reducing the need to harvest new raw materials
Saves energy
Reduces greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change
Helps sustain the environment for future generations
Saves money
Reduces the amount of waste that will need to be recycled or sent to landfills and incinerators
Allows products to be used to their fullest extent

These items were created by us from 'waste'



As an expression of our gratitude to everyone for their financial gift to us, we will be paying it forward with our time, energy and love, by furnishing an entire house for a family who is in need.

This is a huge task and we have chosen this beacuse its very close to our hearts. There has been more than a few times, over the years, when our little family has only gotten by because of the genrosity of others. And now we can finally give back <3
