Silver Icing is comprised of an incredibly strong group of women from across Canada. This influential group believes in positive leadership and taking action, especially at a time when it is needed most.
One of our Core Values at Silver Icing is the word “Community”; at its essence, our community provides a sense of support and for that reason we, as a community, are coming together to support the lives affected in Australia.
We are devasted by the tragedies caused by the wide spread bushfires all throughout Australia. Silver Icing is holding a fundraiser in an effort to help both our human and furry friends rebuild their lives as well as their precious and unique ecosystems.
$10 from each sale of our Australia Sweatshirt will be donated evenly between two incredible Canadian Charities specifically designated to help the Australia Wildfire Relief Funds.
