We do not accept any donations. This platform is for non-payment volunteering only.
For those with money to give, donations to the Salvation Army, the Australian Red Cross and state-based brigades like the New South Wales Rural Fire Service, Victoria’s Country Fire Authority and South Australia’s Country Fire Service will go towards bushfire efforts.
Cash through registered funds and official appeals is the best way to help, according to the NSW Office of Emergency Management, as it helps people choose exactly what they need and supports local businesses.
Affected communities often do not have anywhere to put donated toys, clothes and other goods right now. So don’t go sending a bunch of stuff to people who cant store or use it. The last thing people need is a tonne of apples and 2 used sofas to deal with. Keep the stuff, send the mula. Otherwise, volunteer.
You can search volunteers in your local area using the Volunteer Map.
You can also create your own listing so that volunteers can contact you directly. Create a listing here.
