Silent Auction for a Cause: First Love is the Revolution's AstroTurf Chair


We’ve started a new year, and a new decade, in the midst of an unprecedented bushfire crisis. Like the rest of the country, it breaks the Griffs’ hearts to think of the millions of hectares of natural landscape destroyed, thousands of homes and lives affected, and the devastating number of wildlife lost.

To contribute in a small way, Griffin is auctioning off the much-loved AstroTurf Chair from our season of Rita Kalnejais‘s First Love is the Revolution. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.).

Upholstered with up-cycled AstroTurf, and complete with cushion, this retro-style armchair could sit pretty in your home, all in the name of the rehabilitation and preservation of native Australian fauna in our country’s time of need.

To place a bid, send an email to [email protected] with the amount you’d like to purchase the AstroTurf Chair for. Bidding for this Silent Auction will close at midnight on Wednesday 29 January. We’ll announce the highest bidder the following day, and arrange the delivery of the chair from there. You can keep track of bidding by following Griffin’s Twitter profile (#AstroBid).

If AstroTurf isn’t your thing, but you’d still like to give to a good cause, we’re also running a Fundraiser on Facebook for WIRES, where you’ll go in the running for a 2020 Griffin Subscription when you donate whatever you can.

Thanks for helping us to make a world of difference for our Australian wildlife!
