Like many, we are back at work today. But like many others in our country, work is the furtherest thing from their minds. Survival is.
We are sending all our prayers to the firefighters, volunteers, families and animals affected by the fires. ?
It is hard to comprehend what is happening in our country, but here are some ways in which we can help.
If you would like to show support to the bushfires you can donate to the following registered charities where 100% of donations will be directed to the local community:
Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund
VIC Bushfire Disaster Appeal – Bendigo Bank
Farmers would welcome hay and fodder – you can donate here at the Victorian Farmers Federation
→ Ph 1300 882 833 or email email@example.com
→ Please call 136 186 to register injured wildlife
Celeste Barber has set up a fundraiser, already raising in excess of $32m, for the NSW Rural Fire Service & Brigades, working with other organisations nationally to disperse funds where they are needed most.
Other organisations to support are:
→ Australian Red Cross Disaster Recovery & Relief
→ Salvation Army Disaster Appeal
→ St Vincent de Paul Society NSW Bushfire Appeal
