As we know our beautiful country has been burning for close to two months now with no end in sight. Hundreds if not thousands of people have lost their homes and any kind of way to get to basic necessities like food and water.
We know that millions of animals have also perished in these fires.
I'm calling upon my family and friends or even strangers to donate whatever amount you can spare to go towards the people fighting these fires especially to the voluntary fire fighters who are giving up their time to help those in need. Now they need our help!
On 1 January 2020, across NSW in Australia, there are currently 120 bushfires burning with 68 out of control. More than 900 homes are already lost, thousands of people are displaced and an estimated 480 million animals have perished in these raging fires.
Since the start of the Australian bush fire season this year, over 3.6 million hectares have burned and are still burning in NSW, with another 1 million hectares burned in SA, QLD and Victoria and 1.2 million hectares in WA.
Your donation will assist in purchasing equipment for use by NSW Rural Fire Brigades across the state, and the continued safety these firefighters provide.
More information about The Trustee for NSW Rural Fire Service & Brigades Donations Fund: During the reporting period, the NSW Rural Fire Service and Brigades Donations Fund received generous donations from the public. Funds are utilised to purchase equipment for use by NSW Rural Fire Brigades across the State.
Remember every dollar counts so if it's $5 or $500 just know it is going to the right place!
Thank you all and God bless! Our prayers go out to all those who are being affected.
