Bushfire Wildlife Relief
The recent and ongoing Australian Bushfires have devastated a lot of our country.
It’s estimated that around 18.6 million hectares have been burned throughout the country and destroyed close to 6000 buildings, including over 200 homes and has affected many lives.
As an Australian company we want to show our support by donating all profits from in-store and online this Australia Day to charities that support wildlife affected by Australian bushfires.
If you’d like to help us raise as much as we can, we will also have donation jars in store.
Not sure how else you can help? We’ve compiled a list of other charities and ways you can show your support in this time of need.
It’s estimated that over 1 billion animals have either perished or been affected in the fires.
With the struggle to find food, water or habitat, WIRES work to rescue and care for as many of the struggling, sick or injured wildlife animals as they can. While they mostly work in NSW, they are also reaching out to other states to give aid.
Many of our smaller towns, people and businesses have been affected. It’s my shout gives the option of supporting these communities by buying virtual goods from the local businesses. Options include accommodation, food, petrol, clothing and activities to then pass on to the residents in their time of need.
