For the entire month of January I will be donating all profits to the bush fire appeal.
Australia has been impacted terribly with this summers bush fires!
As of 14 January 2020, fires this season have burnt an estimated 18.6 million hectares, destroyed over 5,900 buildings (including 2,779 homes) and killed at least 34 people.
An estimated one billion animals have been killed and some endangered species may be driven to extinction. Air quality has dropped to hazardous levels. The cost of dealing with the bushfires is expected to exceed the A$4.4 billion of the 2009 Black Saturday fires, and tourism sector revenues have fallen more than A$1 billion. By 7 January 2020, the smoke had moved approximately 11,000 kilometres (6,800 mi) across the South Pacific Ocean to Chile and Argentina, then returned to Australia after making a full circuit around the globe. As of 2 January 2020, NASA estimated that 306 million tonnes of CO2 was emitted. Fires are still burning around the country as of today, the 5th February 2020.
Everyone affected by these bush fires are going to need our help for years to come. Weather it is cash or goods being donated, to assistance in rebuilding, or just visiting the local towns and communities impacted and supporting the local businesses and tourism industries.
