Hi, my name is Michael Margetts. Many people may already know that bushfires all over the globe have been increasing, significantly in Australia. I have recently grown ambitious towards wildlife and the environment and would finally like to start making a change no matter how little or big.

Bushfires have taken over a lot of Australia. Devouring nearly 13.5 million acres of land. Think of how much wild land has been destroyed!

Up to 500,000 animals and plants have been killed, many more have been injured. Before I have felt sad, this day I feel distraught about everything that is going on and how many people turn blind eyes.

It is so sad and admittedly up to now, I have also not done much if anything to support in any way. I have gained interest in knowing more about the impacts of what we/I can do to help.

NOW I start to make changes and a difference. This money raised will be donated to RSPCA NEW SOUTH WALES BUSHFIRE APPEAL.
RSPCA NSW is doing all they can to protect the pets, livestock and wildlife that are in threatened or affected areas. Over the past few weeks, RSPCA NSW has also taken part in evacuations, gathering animals and taking them to safety.

I would like for people to give donations no matter how small! Anything is very generous and I will be doing my bit in donations as well. This is about sharing awareness and starting little. I plead for people to see sense into giving little into fundraisers that go towards a healthier planet and animals and the environment.

This isn't just it: I have set myself a challenge to start a vegan diet and learn more about what I eat and changing my habits around me such as what I use in my life to show my support to livestock and animals. As a result of becoming vegan contributes eminently to the environment. JUST ONE MONTH of a regular vegan diet is enough to save over 900ft of a forest, 270kg of CO2 and 33,000 gallons of water! So becoming vegan isn't just about saving animals or being a hippy... it's so much more than that. 

ALSO to add something else to it at the end of the fundraising on the 29th April 2020 (my birthday) I will be shaving my head to give people a little incentive of laughter to this cause too! 

I will be blogging my everyday life habits and diet etc. onto my Instagram for everybody to witness that I am very serious about this and want to influence as many people as I possibly can! I hope that many people can follow my journey and maybe follow some steps too.

Thank you very much for reading this story.
