Why we chose those causes and organisations?

We have identified 3 main things that needs to be done:

  1. Fight the fires
  2. Help human victims
  3. Help wildlife victims

1. Fight the fires

Since we are ill equipped, unskilled and geographically far away from most of the bushfires, we shall leave it to the local professionals. Rural NSW and VIC are two of the most bushfire affected areas. Hence it makes sense to donate to NSW Rural Fire Service and Country Fire Association (VIC).

2. Help Human Victims

Due to the recent news regarding Australian Red Cross, Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul (Vinnies), we will continue to search for the best avenue to help human victims from the bushfires.

3. Help Wildlife Victims

Taken from WWF's website:

"URGENT APPEAL: Across the country, over 10 million hectares of Australian land has been burned to the ground. Over 1 billion animals have lost their lives so far, including thousands of koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, birds and other iconic wildlife. Your support is urgently needed to care for injured wildlife and restore their homes."
