The Australian Bushfire crisis is responsible for the destruction of more than 1,300 houses and up to half a BILLION wildlife. With more than 8.4M hectres of our beautiful country being burnt (as of the 7th of January), it’s time to #FightTheFires together! We are asking the community to come together, activate their followers and raise a goal of $1,000,000 for the Aussie bushfires. The movement and relief fund will be ongoing as long as the bushfires and affected communities require our support.
Are you ready to join us and support #FightTheFires on January 14th?
Where is the money going?
The money donated through the #FightTheFires relief fund will be divided between the New South Wales Rural Fire Service, WIRES and Australian Red Cross.
New South Wales Rural Fire Service (RFS):
The New South Wales Rural Fire Service is a volunteer-based firefighting agency and statutory body of the Government of New South Wales. The RFS has around 70,000 members, but most of them are performing unpaid work. Donations to the RFS will be shared nationally with other states.
WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.) has been rescuing and caring for native animals for over 30 years. Funds donated to WIRES will go to the rehabilitation, safety and care of wildlife affected by the fires.
Australian Red Cross:
Australian Red Cross' Disaster Relief and Recovery fund support individuals and families affected by the bushfires. Red Cross helps with long-term recovery programs, emergency assistance and evacuation centres/recovery hubs for communities affected. Please note - The Australian Red Cross is not affiliated with the American Red Cross and is operated by different entities.
