RE: "Kindness shines through during an uncertain time", letter, April 8.
I run a small, home-based cookie business, Imperfectly Perfect Sugar Cookies, and I deliver cookies Australia-wide.
Three-quarters of the occupants in my home have medical issues and I had not been able to get hand sanitiser anywhere.
I had a small amount left of my very small supply when I saw that Stone Pine Distillery was making it.
I contacted them to see if they were selling to small businesses, was asked for my address and when I asked the cost, I was told there would not be one.
I explained I understood the costs involved and was happy to pay for it, only to be told there was no charge.
The next day it was delivered to my door!
How lucky are we as small businesses to know that other small businesses will help each other in times of need.
If I wasn't able to get my hands on some sanitiser, I would have had no choice but to close my business.
Thank you, Stone Pine, for helping me keep my business going.
