All donations go directly to Red Cross Australia and The Salvation Army’s bushfire appeals!
Hi! My name is Veda Surapaneni. I'm an 18 year old Australian, currently on a gap year between high school and university.
What exactly am I doing?
During January, I will catch the ferry to Devonport, Tasmania, which is where my journey will begin. I will travel around the entire Tasmanian coastline, meeting people and collecting donations for the devastating Aussie bushfires. I will visit communities who have been impacted, providing them with any assistance I can offer.
Where will the money go?
After reading and seeing the impact the current bushfires - one of the worst in history - has had on firefighters, citizens and native flora and fauna, I decided to advocate for The Australian Red Cross and Salvation Army instead, who are running a disaster, relief and recovery campaign.
