It’s hard not to feel helpless in the midst of the terrible bushfires that are roaring around Australia and causing so much devastation to people and wildlife. I cannot imagine what it must be like to lose a loved one or my home to fires. My heart aches when I think also of the animals dying or becoming homeless too.
There are many organisations doing amazing things to actively help out and at Two-Winged Fruit we will support some of that work. For every Two-Winged Fruit order placed in January, we will donate $5 to bushfire victims.
We are supporting the following organisations:
WIRES Wildlife Rescue
It is estimated that over 800 million animals have been affected by the recent bushfires. WIRES is rescuing sick, injured and orphaned animals. In December alone it attended 3,300 animal rescues.
Rural Fire Brigades Association Queensland
As a Queensland-based company, we are also supporting our local rural fire service – the Rural Fire Brigades Association Queensland. They comprise over 33,000 volunteers including 1,400 volunteer brigades and they serve over 93% of Queensland. They have protected our local communities from fires. Some of their volunteer brigades are also providing support to interstate fire services.
