The World Answers Australia’s Bushfire Relief Appeal

While the Australian bushfire crisis has been the top talking point within local conversations for some time now, the urgency for bushfire and wildlife relief has hit the world stage this month.

Australian bushfires have caused devastation across the nation due to both their fierceness and scale, but they’ve also brought out the kindness of many around the world, digging deep to help those affected.

From Elton John announcing at his Sydney show that he’s donating $1million to fire relief…

…through to photographer, Lydia Collins, selling beautiful photos of Australian landscape with all proceeds going to @redcrossau & @wildlifevictoria; people across the globe are getting involved to help in whatever way they can!

How it started gaining traction

It started on social media in November when actor Russell Crowe auctioned his Rabbitohs baseball cap. It raised an amazing $100,000 for the rural fire service, after his NSW home was damaged in a bushfire.

But when New Year’s Eve came around, this was when the attention of the world switched to Australia as thousands of NSW and Victorian residents devastatingly were evacuated from their homes under apocalyptic skies.

With growing exposure on main stream and social media, the severity of the circumstances and urgency for help needed in Australia became clear.
