Helping those affected by Australia’s bushfire crisis
The scale of the destruction and devastation in Australia due to the ongoing bushfires is unprecedented. The fires are significantly impacting lives, communities, livelihoods and our unique wildlife.
To the firefighters, volunteers and others on the front line a huge heartfelt thank you and to all those that have lost homes, family and loved ones our thoughts are with you.
At WridgWays, we like many Australians wonder how best to help those affected by the ongoing crisis. We have sourced hay bales and farming supplies from an external supplier and our team is collecting non-perishable items which will delivered to those in affected areas.
If you would like to donate directly to those affected, we’ve listed a number of organisations below which are supporting those in need.
Bendigo Bank Bushfire Disaster Appeal (Endorsed by Vic Government)
Kangaroo Island Mayor’s Relief Fund (Endorsed by SA Government)
