Mocka loves giving back to the community and are committed to supporting local and national charities when they can. Therefore, when Porter Davis Homes contacted Mocka and asked them if they would like to donate some Mocka products to support a cause, naturally they jumped at the chance.
The Cubby House Challenge is organised and run by Under Cover Kids. Under Cover Kids is a charity that supports the prevention of homelessness among youth around Australia. It works with an early intervention approach to implement preventative strategies to keep youth in homes, education and to provide security for at-risk young people. They provide scholarships, mentoring and housing opportunities for young people that are affected by serious life circumstances.
Under Cover Kids Cubby House Challenge 2014 was held at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show on the 26th to 30th of March. The five luxury cubby houses were designed and built by Australia’s most prestigious architect and building firms. The cubbies were then auctioned off and the highest bidder was lucky enough to take one home.
Mocka was fortunate enough to be approached by Porter Davis Homes to donate three Mocka Kids Tree Hangers for the exterior decoration of their cubby house. Porter Davis Homes designed a remarkable cubby house called ‘The Hatch’. They made dreams come true for kids around Australia with their fun but contemporary cubby house featuring its very own ball pit along with comfortable interior corner seating. The exterior featured three of Mocka’s Kids Tree Hangers in pink, blue and green.
“The Hatch was specifically designed as a monolithic sculptural piece to be part of the surrounding landscape in any backyard. With angled walls, the cubby demonstrates visual stability that gives it a more natural form. Inside, there is a bench to play games and draw on, a comfy seat in the corner to chill out and relax on, or sit back and read, but the best part- 'The Hatch' has its very own colourful ball pit. The perfect place to hide from parents!”
The auction raised over $40,000 for the Kids Under Cover foundation. Mocka was very proud to have been involved in this wonderful charity event.
