There are not many words to describe the events that have been ongoing over the past few months in our beautiful country. Unprecedented bushfires have been burning for months due to dramatic weather conditions as a result of the current climate emergency. As we all begin a new year, it is hard to believe or put into words what some of our friends, family, colleagues, neighbours, emergency services & volunteers have been through. We’ve put together a list of the organisations you can donate to in this time of need, to show your support where it is needed the most.
We’d also like to extend an invitation to any of our creative community to reach out to us directly with any initiatives or projects to raise funds for those in need. We want our amazing community to band together and will be looking to partner with projects that are committed to raising funds for those in need. We will commit to donating 100% of our fees to those who need it most, the organisations listed below.
NSW: Rural Fire Service — RFS have been providing round the clock efforts to provide support to local communities and defend towns in the path of the many fires. Donate to them directly by choosing a local brigade or to the RFS as a whole.
VIC: Country Fire Association — The CFA has set up a page with all the relevant entities you can choose to donate to, making it easy to see where your donations are going and supporting the amazing work they are doing.
Red Cross Disaster Relief — Donate directly to the Australian Red Cross’ joint disaster appeal with the ABC of which 100% of the proceeds will go to supporting the communities affected by the fires.
The Salvation Army — Emergency response teams have been activated in multiple locations that need support, providing meals to evacuees and frontline supporters.
Animals in Need
RSPCA — They have launched a bushfire appeal to protect animals including pets, livestock and native animals and keep them safe during this time.
WIRES — NSW Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service are rescuing and rehabilitating the millions of animals that have been displaced and injured by these fires.
The positive outcome from this tragedy is the sense community spirit and help that has been shown from right across the world. People are banding together to raise funds collectively and doing their bit to contribute in any small way.
