The fires have devistated the Adelaide Hills & many animals are still left suffering. Animals don’t have health insurance or home insurance so it’s up to us to nurse them back to good health & relocate them to safer locations.
My first aim is to raise $1000 for Adelaide Koala Rescue. I have been volunteering for themrecently & I have seen the time, effort & organisation that goes into caring for the injured Koalas. It’s a 24hour job that is a unpaid volunteer position. They operate solely on donations. Due to the heat waves and fires affecting the Adelaide Hills there is currently a high number of Koalas in care. Some are burn victims from the fires, others are orphaned babies.
once the goal has been reached I will contact the charity & ask how they would like to receive the funds. That may be in the form of a monetary donation, or donation of good such as medicine, food, water, bedding, bandages, covering vet bills ect. If the charity chooses some goods are to be donated, such as bedding or food, I will purchase these goods with the donation money & take them directly to the charity myself. Any money left over will be donated straight to the charity.
Please feel free to donate any small amount you can, every little bit helps & every little bit is deeply appreciated.
Once I have reached the $1000 goal & donated to the chosen charity I will be picking a new charity. The goal for the new charity will also be $1000. I would like to donate to a Wildlife volunteer group on Kangaroo island. If anyone has any suggestions of charities directly dealing with emergency situations involving our wildlife please let me know.
