A Letter from our founder...
Hi everyone! My name is Ceren Alkac-Lee and I am the founder of OddBird Co.
Many of you may know that I was born in Turkey but perhaps few know that my family immigrated when I was very little and I spent most of my life in Australia, two hours north of Sydney in the small town of Nelson Bay.
Most of my childhood memories are there, intertwined in the once beautiful sprawling eastern countryside, which for months now has been engulfed by devastating wildfires. The worst we've seen in a century.
As you may have read, upwards of half a billion animals have been killed in these fires and perhaps as many have been displaced. Though OddBird is a small business, we knew we had to do something to support our Australian comrades in this heartbreaking time.
EVERY contribution counts and together we can make a difference!
Until sold-out, we are donating 100% of the proceeds from these hand-towel sales to WIRES WILDLIFE RESCUE AUSTRALIA to help protect the wildlife in the face of rapid habitat destruction and even extinction.
It is easy to feel helpless in the face of such a catastrophe but there is so much we can do. Every effort makes an impact.
We are grateful to our community here in America and around the world and our hearts are with our family in Australia.
Thank you in advance for your support ❤️
