Over the last two years, #bakedrelief’s Valentine’s Day and Anzac Day campaigns have delivered donations of home made goods directly to over 1,000 farming families. Each parcel, made with love and packed with hand written notes of encouragement, have lifted the spirits across rural areas, letting our country cousins know that the city cares. #BakedRelief have another campaign in the works, this time supporting small business owners in rural towns, who have also felt the pinch of a stretched economy.
This Mother’s Day, #bakedrelief have solved your gift-giving woes with a partnership directly supporting a small business in a drought affected community.
“Imagine if you could buy all of your Mother’s Day presents, have them beautifully wrapped and delivered to Brisbane and know that you are supporting a drought affected farming community, all from the comfort of your own home” says Danielle Crismani, Founder of #bakedrelief. “We’re making it as easy as possible for people to spend money in a country town, supporting one rural business and influencing a community.”
Crismani is calling for people to order their Mother’s Day gifts directly from Gifts at Teacup, a small business in Roma. Gifts will be wrapped and posted at an Australia-wide flat rate of $10 postage. Alternatively, CareFreight is donating time to deliver the orders from Roma to Brisbane for collection.

Shop owner Tahnee Holland comments, “This is a great way to showcase some of the wonderful small business owners who operate outside of metropolitan areas. This is a great way to leave your shopping dollars in a small town where it can make a big difference.”
Gifts at Tea Cup in Roma was chosen as #bakedrelief’s first shopping event partner for Mother’s Day this year and #bakedrelief are planning to showcase other online regional businesses going forward in creative ways.
Crismani adds “We know that people are time poor and finding something special for our mother’s can feel like another chore on your already busy to-do list. This initiative provides an easy way for people across Queensland to contribute directly to a struggling rural economy while getting a beautiful, quality gift.”
