Raising funds for Australia's Heroes

As of May 28th, 2020, all funds for this fundraiser have been donated to The Country Fire Authority & Brigades Donation Fund via a PayPal Giving Fund. 

Tiger Pistol raised funds for The Country Fire Authority, whose amazing volunteers put their lives on the line to fight the bushfires in Australia.

Why did Tiger Pistol raise funds?
Our company was founded in Melbourne, Victoria in 2011, and we still have strong ties to Australia. With every day that goes past, our hearts break seeing the devastation across Australia. We wanted to do something to show our support.

In the early months of 2020, with skies turning red and giant clouds of smoke sparking widespread thunderstorms, no area of the country was escaping the effects of the blaze. Put simply, Australia needed our help, and the best way to do that was to help those controlling the blazes.
