Due to the OVERWHELMING nature of the devastation across Australia, and not knowing where to start, I have started THIS campaign specifically to help FUND LOCAL CHARITIES in the Bega Valley. 100% of donated funds (after this site deducts their cut being the only fee), will go to LOCAL BEGA VALLEY PEOPLE I know.. and here's the latest on how bad the Bega valley is.. in the words of one of my best high school friends and one of my closest friends still.. Denise (last story in this PBS & UK special) https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/australias-catastrophic-and-relentless-battle-with-bushfires
1)our volunteer firefighters, without whom we would be .. even more devastated and thanks to our illustrious leader he who shall NOT be named as he just promotes himself, funding to these organizations has been slashed or non-existent. The local heroes fighting to save their homes, their neighbour's homes and the animals are the ones that will be given money.. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-50887982 People like my cousin Phil and his wife who saved his and his neighbour's homes .. bar one straight up fighting fires on their own, no RFS assistance for almost 2 weeks straight.. now health issues from the toxic smoke may arise.. :(
2) local emergency needs for Cobargo through Denise Food, water, medical supplies and simply maybe a cup of tea!
3) local WIRES carers (through Denise and Phil) who personally know foster carers who also have lost their homes.
Please FOLLOW, COMMENT and send prayers on the updates and FORWARD this page. Other donation sites are listed for Australia wide services. The money raised here (100% of what is raised) will be used entirely within my local area overseen by myself ensuring it goes to services that are needed and locally started campaigns as the need arises.
Thank you for your kindness, support and prayers in advance.
