How You Can Help those Affected by the Bushfires

Australia, our beloved country, is often referred to as our “sunburnt country”; an apt description embodying our amazing rich brown and red soil landscape, unique wildlife, and the Aussie way of life.

However, Australia has recently become a nation ravaged by wildfires; causing widespread devastation that has taken homes, human life, and wildlife. As of a day ago (Sunday, January 12) it is said that:

  • 27 people have died
  • more than 2,000 homes have been destroyed
  • 18 million acres have burned, and
  • a billion animals may have been killed

The response, locally, statewide, nationally and internationally has been overwhelming; with firies, volunteers, charities, businesses, billionaires, singers, actors, comedians, the Australian and international community all linking arms to help during this incredibly challenging and devasating time in our country.

There has been a call to action; and people from all corners of the world have collectively acknowledged our plight. TV Host Ellen Degeneres acknowledged Australia at the recent 2020 Golden Globes, “Australia, I love you, my heart goes out to everyone who is suffering in Australia, all the animals that we’ve lost.”  The US TV host recently pledged support to Australia’s bushfire relief by launching a $US5 million fundraiser on her show; announcing the fund would “help the firefighters, the people and the animals of Australia”.
