Australian Bushfires

As many of you know Australia is experiencing severe bushfires that are far more devastating than anything we have seen before.The fires have already torched 13.5 million acres, an area larger than Vermont and New Hampshire combined. Since September, the bushfires have destroyed more than 900 homes, decimated small towns, and killed more than 480 million animals and at least 17 people.. As a proud Australian I'am heart broken to see this happen to my motherland. Hundreds are losing their homes, left with nothing but what they have on their back, no supplies, no water,  in this time of tragedy open your doors for your neighbours as Australians I know we will take care of eachother. The firefighters risking  their lives to save others are nothing but heroes, and their efforts and bravery should never go unnoticed. To the men and women of the Australian military rescuing thousands from coastal vacation towns trapped by fast-moving flames we can't thankyou enough. With all that being said want do whatever I can to help, so I have decided to make this gofundme account to help those in need. All the donations will be going to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service.

If you want to get involved in other ways: The World Wildlife Fund is collecting donations to restore habitats for koalas impacted by the fires, you can donate to the Australian Red Cross’s fire recovery and relief fund. or the Country Fire Service Foundation in South Australia, and the County Fire Authority in Victoria.

Thank you!
