On Sunday 27th February, Brisbane was inundated with almost a full year of rain in just 3 days. This weather system had devastating impacts across a large region of Queensland, especially the south east area where Mizzie The Kangaroo has its HQ and warehouse.
Sadly, as the Brisbane River broke its banks, our warehouse was inundated with water and our 2022 stock was submerged beneath the surface.
When the waters receded and we were able to gain access to the warehouse on Wednesday afternoon - 3 days after the weather event - the full extent of damage and loss was revealed. Most heartbreakingly, we are not insured against floods so all of the stock has been lost.
Fortunately, we do have stock in our Pop Up Shop, and orders made via our website are being fulfilled as quickly as they arrive however we are starting to run low on some much loved Mizzie products and encourage you to pop over to the Shop tab to avoid disappointment as we await new stock.
Not only does the clean up continue for the Mizzie team, but much of our warehouse neighbours are still trawling through the aftermath of the floods. We're helping where we can and providing support to others who have been impacted as we watch the system move further south. We sincerely hope our NSW friends and family are safe and that the impact will not be as devastating as we've felt in Brisbane.
To our community: THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts, for your support, love, messages and orders over the last week. You have no idea how much they have kept us going when we've had times of despair and heartbreak, not just for Mizzie but for our community.
We've included some ways below we'd love and appreciate our community to continue supporting us as we push ahead with our rebuild:
- Leaving a review on Facebook or Google
- Recommending us to Friends and Family with little ones
- Sharing our Facebook or Instagram profiles & engaging with us
