“I am fourteen years old and I grew up on the island. My family and me live on a farm just outside of Parndana but at the moment I travel back and forth between here and Adelaide where I attend school. I started collecting bread tags about two years ago after someone told me about this great project. Oz Bread Tags for Wheelchairs recycles the bread clips and makes them into bowls. Those bowls will then be sold and the money goes towards purchasing wheelchairs for people in need in South Africa. I like the idea of helping in such an easy way by collecting something we normally throw out. It’s a great way of helping and learning about recycling for the environment. If many people work together, we can make a difference about what goes into landfills. I have so far collected 3825 grams of bread tags with the help of many people in my community and family. Davos Deli, the IGA in Parndana, the Parndana Sports Club, friends, family and even friends of my extended family have helped me collect more and more. We need around two hundred kilos of bread clips to have enough money to purchase just one wheelchair and I am hoping the community will continue to help me. If anyone has bread tags to donate, please give them to me or my family, you can post them here or give them directly to Oz Bread Tags for Wheelchairs. They also accept cash donations on their website. It’s just a really great project and I hope people will jump on board and support me in this.”

If you want to help Regan, send your bread clips to:

I am a German living in South Australia. We lost our home and farm in the Kangaroo island summer bushfires. I love travelling, reading, beach walks, board games, watching movies and spending time with my family.
