Hippychick support WIRES wildlife rescue in Australia


Here at Hippychick we want to try and do our bit to support those devastated by the Australian bushfires.

It’s a heart-breaking scenario both for humankind as well as for wildlife.  We, along with the rest of the world, are appalled by the amount of animals that have been wiped out by the deadly blaze – some species even being threatened with extinction.  And that’s why we’ve decided to mount an immediate fund-raising effort. 

Our Wheelybug animal and insect ride-on toy range started life in Australia.  With such a close connection, we’ve decided to make Wheelybugs the focus of our fund-raising campaign.  For the next seven days, Hippychick is pledging 10% of all profits of the retail sales of Wheelybugs to WIRES (Wildlife Rescue) – from  9th through to the 16th January.

Our Wheelybugs are available to purchase at www.hippychick.com/wheelybugs. If you’ve been toying with the idea of buying a Wheelybug – there’s no better time than now. 

Alternatively, please feel free to donate directly to WIRES (Wildlife Rescue). Or if you're thinking about online shopping with us anyway, there is the option to include a £1 or £2 donation to your order. 

Thank you.
