16-hr Music Marathon: A Fundraiser for Our Firies

Music Fundraiser for Our CFA

Please join me in making a difference!

The bushfires in Australia have devastated our land and communities. Our firefighters have faced, and are still facing, countless hours of fighting fires as they battle to protect homes, properties, native forests and animals. This fundraiser is a tribute to their endurance, resilience and strength, in the form of a music marathon.

Who the Money will go to
The money raised through this marathon will be in aid of The Trustee for the Country Fire Authority (CFA). Every donation will help. 100% of donations from this Music Marathon will be paid directly to the CFA. 

What the Money will be used for
More information about The Trustee for the CFA: All revenues are vested in Victorian volunteer fire brigades. The brigades use these funds for a wide range of emergency service purposes including the acquisition of additional equipment such as vehicles, defibrillators, and thermal imaging cameras, as well as fire station improvements.

Who I am
I am Natasha Lin, a concert pianist, music therapist, and the founder of Keys to Wellbeing. I believe in the potential of music as a harness for social and community wellbeing.

The Music Marathon
Top classical musicians in Melbourne have banded together for this 16-hr music marathon event to pay tribute to the firefighters' endurance, resilience and courage during bushfire crisis. Starting from 7am, the performances will run continuously until 11pm. To support this fundraiser, you can make a donation through our GoFundMe page. On the day of the music marathon, we invite you to join us in enjoying the music and reflecting on the amazing work the firefighters are doing. Entry will be with on-site cash/card donation, all are welcome.
