With the ongoing catastrophic bush fires across the whole of Australia, I'll be dedicating this weekends streams to raise as much as we can as a community to support those in desperate need in the following regions: East Gippsland, Hume, South-East New South Wales & the Adelaide Hills.
100% of my personal revenue during the streams will be donated straight to the Bushfire Disaster Appeal, along with all of the donations from this GoFundMe page. (Bushfire Disaster Appeal: https://www.communityenterprisefoundation.com.au/make-a-donation/bushfire-disaster-appeal/)
To put the Australian bushfires into perspective for people outside of Australia (credit: Brodie Ashton).
More Australian land is currently burning than exists in the entire country of Belgium. The smoke is causing breathing problems in New Zealand, 2,000km away. Half a billion animals have been killed. Eight people are dead.
The devastation in Australia right now FAR exceeds the Amazon fires or the California fires by MANY ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE, and there is no expectation that it will recede for at least several more months. In parts of Sydney, breathing the air is equivalent to a pack of cigarettes.
One-seventh of the state of Victoria is on fire. The fire front in the state of New South Wales is so long that, if you made it a straight line, it would stretch from Sydney to Afghanistan. The fires are being fought by volunteers.
I understand not everyone is in a position to donate, but by simply sharing the page and spreading awareness it can help more than you know.
Stream Details: Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th January at 8:00PM AEDT on: twitch.tv/FUTWIZ_Jamie
