HOW CAN I HELP AUSTRALIAN BUSHFIRE VICTIMS, FROM HERE IN THE USA?
Thank you to all who have shown concern and interest in relief support to our fellow Australians affected by the devastating fires currently ravaging across the country. For those outside Australia, you can donate to support #australianredcross @AustralianRedCross disaster relief and recovery work . The needs of first responders and victims are great and varied and it's the services and charities on the frontline, such as Red Cross, who are best placed to know what is needed and where. Australia’s national broadcaster, ABC News (www.abc.net.au) is a good source for up-to-date information on the status of the emergency and relief efforts. Our sympathies go out to the families and communities who are impacted by the fires and we send our gratitude to the thousands of dedicated and highly trained emergency services personnel working tirelessly to respond to these disasters on the front line.

With warehouses and distributing agencies at breaking point, we recommend monetary donations as the most effective way of providing relief.
