Rising from the Storm: A Call for Community Support

Dear Life is a Party community,


As we approach the end of this year, we face the stark reality of the challenges endured by our friends and neighbours in the northern Gold Coast. In the wake of a recent storm that struck on Christmas evening, these resilient communities are grappling with the aftermath, standing strong but in need of our collective support.


The Aftermath: A Community in Need

The festive cheer was replaced by an unexpected storm that left the northern Gold Coast in disarray. Residents still lack power and essential telecommunications nearly three days after the storm. The enormity of the recovery effort ahead is daunting, and our fellow community members face it with courage and determination.


The Urgent Call for Assistance

Northern Gold Coast communities are seeking assistance, particularly in Helensvale our neighbouring suburb. With emergency services and volunteer crews stretched thin, they face an uphill battle in clearing debris, assessing damages, and rebuilding what was lost. The storm's intensity has been likened to a tornado, leaving buildings damaged, trees uprooted, and an entire community shaken.



A Tragic Toll: Losses and Injuries

Amid this chaos, we mourn the loss of a 59-year-old Helensvale woman, a tragic reminder of the storm's devastating impact. Dozens more have been injured, underscoring the urgency of the situation and the need for immediate relief efforts.


Life is a Party's Call to Action

At Life is a Party, we believe in the power of community and supporting one another during challenging times. In response to this urgent situation, we are launching a special initiative to channel assistance directly to those affected.


Shop with Purpose: Every Purchase Makes a Difference

From now until Sunday, 3 January 2024, for every $200 spent in-store and online, Life is a Party will donate $50 to support storm relief efforts. Your purchases will directly contribute to helping the northern Gold Coast community rebuild and recover.


Join Us in Making a Difference

As we reflect on the year behind us and look forward to the possibilities ahead, let's come together to make a meaningful impact. Our support can be a beacon of hope for those facing the daunting task of rebuilding their lives after the storm.


How You Can Help:


- Shop with us: Every purchase counts toward the relief efforts.


- Spread the word: Share our initiative on social media and encourage others to join.


Together, We Rise

Life is a Party is more than just a fashion destination; it's a community of caring individuals. Let's show our northern Gold Coast neighbours that they are not alone—that even in the face of adversity, we stand together, ready to rise from the storm.


Thank you for being a part of this community where fashion meets compassion.


With heartfelt gratitude,


Josephine Dewe
