Editor Imogen Bailey reflects on what Toy & Hobby Retailer can do to help those who've been impacted by the recent bushfire crisis.
I've been thinking a lot lately about what Toy & Hobby Retailer can do to support toy and hobby businesses in fire-affected areas.
I've been inspired by the 'Take an Empty Esky' campaign, which focuses on travelling to affected regions and spending money in local businesses to help them rebuild.
Now obviously I can't go out to every single business and spend money with them myself, but maybe I can encourage others to do so.
So, I would be honoured to utilise the Toy & Hobby Retailer platform to highlight and profile businesses that have been impacted, to help tell their stories and give press to those who can use it to help rebuild and garner interest in their businesses.
I'm not entirely sure what this will look like yet - I guess that depends on what comes back to me - but if your toy or hobby business (retailer or supplier) has been impacted by the fires, please send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
