14.6 MILLION ACRES of Australia's natural environment and farmland has burned since Sept and the fires are still blazing.
- THERE IS OVER 200 FIRES BURNING across the country
- 500 MILLION ANIMALS have died because of the fires and the toll continues to rise.
- AT LEAST 24 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED AND MANY ARE STILL UNACCOUNTED FOR
- THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ARE TRAPPED with no electricity and water
- 1400 HOMES HAVE BEEN LOST
- A STATE OF EMERGENCY has been declared in two states
With unrelenting weather forecasted all of these figures are rising by the day.
The people in Australia need all the help they can get right now but unfortunately our government is not offering enough support.
All donations will be split evenly between 6 organisations that are doing their absolute best to provide relief to the victims of the fires, humans and animals included.
With this in mind a group of Australian influencers have joined forces to rally the troops and bring people across the world together with one common goal: to provide relief to this nation that so desperately needs us. Now is the time for us to all to use social media to influence for good!
