Bushfire Crisis, Recovery Fund

We need your help! There is a state of emergency in Australia.

It's not business as usual here. Australia is suffering from the most catastrophic bushfire in recorded history. So, we’ve started a gofundme page to help send funds where they are needed most.

❤➡If you can please donate just $5 $10 or $20 dollars it would be greatly appreciated⬅❤

In all of human history, It has never been easier to raise funds and distribute capital to where it is needed. In the palm of your hands you literally have the power to change lives at the push of a few buttons. 

As Australian landscape photographers, we travel the country documenting the beauty that our country has to offer. To see our beautiful home ablaze is heartbreaking and terrifying.

We hope to raise $22,000 to donate to 8 different charities around the country. By donating with us, we hope to make it easy for you to donate to all these charities in one go. We take custodianship of your money very seriously, we are open to feedback and to other donation ideas.

Why should you donate?

Here's why:

- 15 Million Acres of Australia's natural environment and farmland has burned since Sept and the fires are still blazing.

- There are over 200 fires burning across the country

- An estimated 500 million animals have died.

- At least 24 people have lost their lives, while many more are unaccounted for and many more are still at risk.

- Thousands of people are trapped in, with no electricity and no water.

- 1400 Homes have been lost

With unrelenting weather forecasted all of these figures are rising by the day.
