Connecting the Dots
$100.00

This is what it takes to make it all happen. $100 gets a phone all fixed up and ready to give to someone in need. There's a one-of-a-kind handmade reusable shopping bag from Boomerang Bags Parramatta just waiting to become yours PLUS a set of reusable all-purpose kitchen cloths made by me using upcycled linen and cotton towels (they're the reusable alternative to paper towels) AND a set of handmade fresh produce bags (to avoid single use plastic bags at the supermarket).

It Takes Two to Connect
$200.00

Remember how you used to get two tin cans and a string between them to make a phone? Boom!! You've done it again! Your donation has just made two phones work again. That's worthy of some groovy dance music and a paaaarty. My friend Joe has devoted an extraordinary amount of time to making passive phone amplifiers using reclaimed timbers, just so I can reward people like you who are making The Reconnect Project happen. You'll receive one of these handcrafted pieces, expertly made and beautifully finished. It's not just an amplifier, it's a work of art. If you're in Sydney and wanna see the woodshop where Joe makes them, I'll even take you there!
But wait....there's more!
Thanks to the wonderful handmakers and creators at the Sustainable Handmade Collective (www.sustainablehandmadecollective.com.au) you'll receive a $20 voucher to spend at any of their online designers, PLUS you'll receive a one-of-a-kind, handmade reusable bag from Boomerang Bags Parramatta AND a set of reusable all-purpose kitchen cloths made by me using upcycled linen and cotton towels (they're the reusable alternative to paper towels). You'll also receive a personal email from me and your name will be forever etched on The Reconnect Project's web-wall of fame.

Better Connections than the NBN
$500.00

You're so awesome you're making more connections happen than the NBN. I want to personally thank you for your amazing donation, so your reward is a lunch date with me in Sydney. For real. You'll get to listen to how obsessed I am about garbage, I seriously can talk rubbish all day! I might even tell you a story or two of my own adventures salvaging reusable timber or the amazing stuff I've found on the side of the road.

PLUS you'll receive a one-of-a-kind, handmade reusable bag from Boomerang Bags Parramatta AND a set of reusable all-purpose kitchen cloths made by me using upcycled linen and cotton towels (they're the reusable alternative to paper towels) AND a set of handmade reusable produce bags. You'll also receive a personal email from me and your name will be forever etched on The Reconnect Project's web-wall of fame.

The Universal Connector
$1,000.00

Your donation is so out of this world that henceforth you'll be known as The Universal Connector. I'm pulling out all the stops for this reward. You'll be invited to an exclusive afternoon tea with me and a select group of amazing women doing amazing things in this world: championing for better mental health services, campaigning for climate action, shaking up the superannuation industry and broadcasting investigative journalism assignments. Trust me, these chicks are inspirational but don't go around promoting themselves on insta, they're far too busy making a difference and are some of the most genuine, humble people I know. They rock.

You'll also receive the Boomerang Bag, reusable all-purpose kitchen cloths, produce bags, passive amplifier and your name on The Reconnect Project's web-wall of fame.
