Australia: continent on fire
As I’m sure you know, we’ve got quite a a fire problem right now. It’s raging from Queensland right down the NSW coast and into Victoria and it’s horrendous. Homes and lives have been lost. An estimated half a billion animals have perished. During the most dangerous times, people have been forced to wade into the ocean and wait it out. Communities have been devastated and left without power or communications lines. As expected, just about everyone not directly effected is looking for a way to help.
You can give to WIRES or adopt a koala, give to the Red Cross, donate to the Rural Fire Service or the Country Fire Authority or even support fundraising initiatives like this one, to help fire-impacted First Nations communities. You can craft items to help injured wildlife. Some people are organising care packages for fire fighters. There’s always the helpers, right? And apparently, you can donate to the Hillsong Bushfire Appeal.

Mum sent me these pics today of this little dude who was rescued from the bushfires close to them. Bushfires have burned 75% of koala habitats around their region near Port Macquarie where over 350 koalas have perished in the fires. #helpthirstykoalasdevestatedbyrecentfirescampaign continues to accept donations now at over 1.3MM which is being used in the local koala hospital and for further breeding rehabilitation projects. #australia #thisisaustralia #koalas #koalabushfires #love #loveanimals **photographer unknown**
