Big Thanks you to all of the media that helped us get heard.
We hope and beg that everyone is able to repledge their original amount!
Thanks for all of your support so far

We have had very sad news today that GoFundMe have refunded everyone.
We have left the campaign open as we were hoping to raise a bit more money before we sent it off to the charities.
We are in contact with GoFundMe and currently think this was done in error.
We are currently waiting to hear back from GoFundMe as to why this happened.
We were just about to send the money off to the Charities and get it to the people and animals that need it the most.
This is a very stressful time for us as a lot of time and effort was put into this and we are hoping we can recoup the money to get it to where it was intended and we will update everyone on how to do this ASAP
Regards the Whistler Helps Australia Team
***UPDATE DONATIONS WILL GO TO***:
Helping to continue lifesaving work, and support those that are struggling to cope with the enormous amount of animals that will need care in the next coming weeks and months. More information here:
Thanks for all the support so far from lots of business! We are on target to turn this into a very successful fundraiser with, a Heli drop, 5 day edge card, week vacation rentals, multi tube park pass and so much more!
This Sunday, January 12th, friends of Whistler are hosting a fundraiser to support the dire needs of our friends and family, as a result of the devastating wildfires that have destroyed much of the landscape and wildlife. Areas measuring over 15 million acres are affected, and half a billion animals have been killed. To date, 23 people have perished.
The event will host an Après at Garibaldi Lift Company (GLC) between 3 and 6pm.
This will be a gathering of heart. We love Australians; they are our Whistler brothers and sisters. Come and enjoy live music, a silent auction, and much more!
This is an urgent situation, and we need your support now. Please donate an item of value for our silent auction, attend the event, or support this effort through our gofundme page.
We are currently doing the research to see who needs the funds the most and it is going make the most impact. We will keep updating this page with where the funds will go.
We are currently looking into animal charities and donations that will go straight to victims. Any suggestions are welcome, as we want to make sure this goes to the right cause!
