OpenX for WIRES

Hey OpenXers,

Australia needs your help!  

The current bush fires raging across Australia are being dubbed ‘Black Summer’ The bushfires themselves are estimated to be the worst in recorded history in Australia. The fires are being fueled by a combination of extreme heat, prolonged drought and strong winds. Record breaking heat has been seen across all states and with well over a month left of summer more heat is expected.

27 People have lost their lives so far, many still missing. 2000+ homes have been destroyed including large farmland. 20 Million Acres of land has been destroyed. 350 Million Tonnes of CO2 has been released, and an estimated 1.2 Billion + Animals have died. 

As you know we launched OpenX in Australia in the 3rd Quarter of last year.  We have a few employees that live in Sydney who are not in harm's way but we do want to support Australia in any way we can.

We are looking for any donations you can give. As you can imagine an emergency of this scale affects not only the victims of the fires, homes are destroyed, land/crops destroyed, as well as huge devastation to the wildlife and their habitats.

OpenX will be supporting the below organizations. OpenX will also match every dollar donated! (To a maximum of $10,000 across the two campaigns) Please see the other Gofundme Page to donate to the charity you would like to support. 

WIRES - Wildlife Support Fund for rescuing, RE-homing, care and aid to animals affected. 

Australian Red Cross - Supporting Victims with evacuations, food, shelter, water, setting up relief centers and helping victims rebuild.


Thank you for you support! Every dollar will help.
