Really excited to announce that over the next 12 months, PERKii will be championing the heroes of Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) through incredible content, sampling and fundraising activity! We’ve set ourselves a pretty audacious goal (a cool $50k) which we will be donating directly to the SLSA fund.
“SLSA’s drive to save, create and build better Australian lives mirrors our own values of innovation, health and inclusiveness, so the opportunity to support was one we have been working towards for some time” says PERKii CEO, Matt Kowal.
“As an Australian start-up focused on improved health outcomes, we've worked really hard to build a great product for all Australians, available for all Australians,” Matt continues. “We're proud of that effort, and now want to show support for SLSA, supporting the incredible work on Australia waterways, and within local communities.”
Launching early 2020, we’ll be releasing two SLSA branded Probiotic Drinks, Tropical Splash and Forest Berry, across major retailers such as Coles, Woolworths, Coles Express, Caltex and restaurant chain Zambreros. Better yet, every bottle sold will automatically donate 10c to SLSA.
Adam Weir, CEO of SLSA, welcomed PERKii saying “SLSA has always looked for partners that reflect our own values, and those we believe we can form long-term relationships with. In PERKii, we see these characteristics, with a business focused on making change through the better health of Australians"
Who is SLSA? Surf Life Saving Australia is a not-for-profit community made up entirely of incredible volunteers who strive to make Australian beaches and coastlines safe for everyone to enjoy in summer and throughout the year. PERKii hopes these initiatives can raise awareness and funds for the hard-working surf lifesaving community.
While SLSA looks out for you at the beach, our probiotic drinks look out for your gut. It’s going to be a hot one this summer, so hydrate responsibly with an ice-cold PERKii and support your local lifesavers with an automatic donation!
