To all of our friends and clients, this is a short post to let you know that we are all safe and expect things to be back to normal next week.

With so many of our clients and friends being badly affected by the floods, and we’d like to take this opportunity to say that our thoughts are with you and your families, if there is anything we do that can help you to get things back to normal, please let us know.

With that in mind, we have been thinking if there is a way we can use our design and digital skills to help in some way, so a few of us have got together over the weekend voluntarily, and developed a website that will allow retailers and services providers throughout the country to pledge and list discounts on offer for flooded residents and businesses.

Introducing Flood Discounts

Flood Discounts is a New Website to Centralise Discounts for Flooded Residents & Businesses – www.flooddiscounts.com.au

www.flooddiscounts.com.au has been launched on 16th January 2011 as a free web directory where businesses large and small can post discounts on a wide range of products and services that are needed to help victims rebuild their lives, homes and businesses.

Generous business owners can visit the site and post their discounts that are available for legitimate flood victims, continuing the giving of care and generosity that we have seen in recent days and weeks.

At this stage, over 50% of Australia’s flood victims are expected to be denied the ability to claim on their insurance, and will require extraordinary support from their community to rebuild their homes and businesses. And even those with insurance face the enormous task of rebuilding their lives with huge financial impact.


Retailers and suppliers of services are encouraged to register “special discounts” for flood victims who produce proof that their home or business was damaged by the floods.   We are looking for listings in the following categories:


  • home furniture
  • business furniture
  • homewares – linens, kitchen supplies, etc
  • electrical equipment
  • floor coverings
  • window coverings
  • hardware and painting supplies
  • clothing and footwear
  • toys
  • food
  • leisure
  • hire cars and vans
  • pool equipment
  • timber, plasterboard and building materials
  • turf, plants and landscaping supplies
  • other


  • building, carpentry and cabinetmaking
  • plastering
  • plumbing and electrical
  • pool services
  • self storage facilities and removalists
  • rubbish disposal and refuse collection
  • building certification and other inspection services
  • cleaning services
  • counseling
  • photographic restoration and digital conversion

It is easy and free to list discounts offered by your business.  Just visit www.flooddiscounts.com.au and click on “register your discounts”.

Flood Discounts has been proudly and voluntarily developed by Stretch Marketing and Niche Studio.  It is our hope that it will be owned by the community, and its success fed by the people who recommend it to others and post their discounts.  We thank you in advance for your support, and ask you to send this on to your networks and friends.
