Like all of you, our eyes have been glued to the bushfire coverage in recent months. Sadly we've seen many lives lost, tens of thousands of homes destroyed, hundreds of millions animals injured and dead, families sheltering in a red dust haze as they evacuate their homes, and hectares upon hectares of forest up in flames. Watching the footage, seeing that our country is burning, we've asked ourselves, "What can we do to help?"
Unfortunately, there have been many schools impacted by this tragedy, many irreparably damaged or burnt to the ground. There are thousands of families affected and children who won’t have a school to attend at the beginning of Term 1, just a couple of weeks away. We hope to help those schools affected in some small way by reaching out to our network and fundraising donations. These contributions are essential and we call on you to spare anything you can, every dollar counts. Due to the urgency of the situation, please make your donations by January 31, 2020.
Corwin Australia stands as one with the communities we serve and will happily match every dollar raised, (up to AUD 10,000) with all funds being channeled through the Departments of Education to the most needy schools.
Please share this far and wide so we can help get the support needed for our fellow Australians affected by these fires. Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity during these difficult times. ❤️
