Mailers Supporting Children's Ground
Thank you for using our new Indigenous Mailers
If you're reading this, it means you have bought or are the recipient of our First Nations People Mailers, designed by Yarli Creative (Madison Connors). These mailers represent our acknowledgment of our First Peoples and the incredible way they nurtured their land.
First Nations People Mailers
Madison Conners is a proud Yorta Yorta (Wolithica clan), Dja Dja Wurrung (Moomnom Gunditj Bee clan) and Gamilaroi woman. She was born and grew on her Kannygoopna (Shepparton) meaning the place in the river where big fish are caught. Madison is an artist, a human rights advocate, and a mother of two. Her business, Yarli Creative, is a coming together of her yarka (children), her yakapna (family) and her mulana (spirit).
“My identity is what drives me. It’s something that is within me and comes from the heart. My connection to my environmental surroundings is my blood line and vein to this country and the community which runs deep within. I come from a strong line of women and am following in their footsteps; I aim to embody their full form on this earth and strive to make my mob proud of the work that I create and achieve.”
We Support Children's Ground
We are proud to say that 20% of the proceeds of each of these mailers will be donated to Children's Ground, an organisation led by Aboriginal Communities that is creating a new future for children filled with promise, hope and empowerment.
They work with children, families and communities that face the greatest exclusion and live with injustice and disadvantage every single day.
Their vision is for First Nations people in Australia to achieve their aspirations for their children to enjoy a life of opportunity, strong cultural identity, and personal wellbeing by having voice and agency over their social, cultural, political and economic future.
They do this in 3 main ways:
1. Community Change
2. Systems Change
3. Society Change
You can read about their amazing work here.
