Smilodox Supporting Australia
Wildfires ravaged most of the south-eastern states of Australia in 2019 and early 2020. The fires destroyed over 2000 homes and killed at least 34 people. The effect on animals and wildlife has been devastating. It is estimated that one billion birds, mammals and reptiles were reportedly killed by the fires.
Koala bears, which are native to Australia, are among the animals affected. Experts fear that about 30% of the population is dead. The devastation caused by the bush fires, severe drought, and extreme weather conditions has been quite extensive. And this has touched the hearts of many from the international community to step up and help Australia.
I love the fact that Smilodox decided to step up, too, and mobilize some assistance for Australia. In response to the catastrophic situation, they designed a t-shirt to raise funds for charity.
40,000 T-Shirts to Help Australia
What Smilodox did was to produce 40,000 of these t-shirts. The goal, of course, is to sell them to support non-profit organizations involved with rescue and protection activities during the Australian forest fires. Each of these t-shirts was selling for 14.99€.
Unlike other brands which donate a portion of the sales proceeds to charity, Smilodox committed to donate 100% of the proceeds from these t-shirts. I thought that was really something. And the international support Smilodox received was amazing. They managed to raise 250,000€ and donated everything to causes helping in the Australia bush & forest fires.
Some of the wildlife non-profits involved in protecting and caring for affected animals include the following:
- WIRES Australian Wildlife Rescue Organization
- Landcare Australia – Partnering with WIRES
- World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Australia
- Royal Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA)
Other charities involved in assisting Australian citizens affected by the forest fires include these:
It feels good buying from a brand that supports worthy causes. One that it’s not just about selfish profits. So, I am really happy to share Smilodox with you. Consider this an invite to explore all the goodies they have on offer today.

Smilodox Free Face Mask Giveaway
The brand currently has a promo going on, where they’re giving away a free face mask with every online purchase of any amount. The free reusable mask is a non-medical design made from polyester. It’s washable and quick-drying.
This is really beneficial in the current COVID-19 season, because face masks are important in preventing the spread of the virus. The coronavirus, which causes COVID-19 illness, is highly contagious and is spread through droplets from coughing or sneezing.
Because masks help slow down virus spread through aerosols, it’s now recommended that people wear facemasks when out in public. In many countries affected by COVID-19 pandemic, medical face masks are in short supply.
To eliminate competition with doctors and nurses for medical masks, people are being urged to use homemade masks.
This leaves the medical masks for dedicated use by our hardworking medical personnel. This is the motivation behind Smilodox providing a free face mask with customers orders. So you don’t just look great in Smilodox athleisure when taking a socially distant walk or going shopping. You can also stay safe with your face mask on.
