A time traditionally overflowing with the hope of new opportunities has brought sadness and heartache to our team and our communities, as we watch the unprecedented bushfires claim countless lives (both human and animal) and millions of hectares of our bushland.

As a company built on supporting small businesses and helping them to thrive, it pains us to see so many people across the country losing not only their homes, but also their livelihood. We know so many of you share in our heartbreak and are doing your part to heal our neighbours and communities left devastated by these events.

What else can I do to help?

Across our team, we have donated to the below organisations - even the smallest contribution goes a long way toward helping those communities and businesses who have lost everything. As a business, we are currently working on co-ordinating ongoing support across all our events, more on this to come. If you’re looking for additional ways to donate, please keep the following organisations in mind:

  • Australian Red Cross
  • NSW Rural Fire Service
  • VIC Country Fire Authority
  • The Salvation Army
  • Vinnies
  • Wildlife Emergency Fund
  • Foodbank
  • Port Macquarie Koala Hospital
  • NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service (WIRES)
  • Good360
  • The devastation we are all feeling across the country will take months and years to heal, long after the lenses of the world's media have left. To help in rebuilding these communities we encourage you to #buyfromthebush and #spendwiththem to help support small businesses in the recovery process.

    To our local communities around Australia, we send our love and best wishes. And to our firefighters and those helping on the front line, we say ‘thank you’.
