In the midst of the worst bushfire season on record, we are so incredibly moved and grateful for the compassion and generosity pouring in from the entire world. It's touching to see individuals, groups and businesses - including so many within our own industry - doing what they can to pitch in.
Our pledge - 100% of the profit from every My Country exhibition painting sold on Australia Day weekend, along with $30 from every order throughout January, will be donated to the organisations listed below.
We hope that our contribution, combined with so many others, will help make a difference.
Red Cross give people the support they need in disasters, whenever and wherever they happen. This fund helps provide training, equipment, logistics and coordination of our volunteers, helps with recovery programs and emergency assistance in affected communities, and helps people and communities prepare for disasters and protect what matters most.
Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria has a Volunteer Welfare Fund which makes small grants on a needs basis to CFA volunteers, long serving former volunteers and their families, who are experiencing significant financial hardship. The grants are designed to alleviate stresses that can affect the individual’s ability to continue as a volunteer.
Set up by Zoos Victoria, this official fund will help fund emergency veterinary assistance and scientific intervention for affected wildlife in response to this crisis.
