This is our pledge... Like many, we are devastated by the impact of the bushfires burning across our beautiful country and wondering how we can help. We know many of our customers live in rural areas and are, no doubt, experiencing some of the biggest challenges of their lives. Our heart goes out to you.

On Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 January Peter Sheppard Footwear will be donating $50 for every pair of shoes sold, in-store and online.

If there is one thing these bushfires have proven, it’s the strength of this country’s community. We acknowledge the dedication of those working tirelessly, including firefighters and emergency personnel, to relieve widespread destruction around Australia. We also thank the volunteers who are selflessly defending communities impacted by the bushfires.

Proceeds from this weekend will be evenly donated between the WWF's Australian Wildlife and Nature Recovery Fund and Community Enterprise Foundation.
