It was with broken hearts that we watched our country burn. Fires started in September and every day seemed to be filled with more devastation, more bad news. The overwhelming generosity of the Australian people, and our friends around the world, has been the biggest positive to come out of this summer where Australia was all over the world’s media for the wrong reasons.
With the Australian summer almost over and the worst of the bushfire season now behind us, the focus turns to rebuilding the communities devastated by the fires. Financial support through donations to charities, such as the Australian Red Cross and WIRES, or directly to fire services around the country are a great way to help those in need. But what else can we do to help?
Donations of non-perishable foods and handmade items for the care of wildlife are now in abundance and only being accepted by a limited number of places. We look at some of the other ways that you can contribute.
