The Australian Bushfires - How Can You Help?
Even if you don’t live in Australia, chances are you aware of the utterly catastrophic devastation going on with the bushfires right now. It is beyond comprehension and as an Australian, I find it absolutely heartbreaking.
I have donated personally and my business is also donating as much as possible to various charities. Unfortunately, one person can only donate so much before they can’t anymore. But one thing that we can do is share information, links and awareness around the world to help as much as possible. If you can’t afford to donate personally, that is ok. Maybe the info you share will be seen by someone who can make a donation but didn’t know how, or help someone else stay safe in a fire ravaged area. Even if you can just be there to support those in need, every little bit counts. We are all in this together.
Below I have listed some links to various charities and information sources that I hope you will find helpful. Information is constantly being updated so stay tuned to the media for more info:
