Australian Geographic Bushfire Support
The Australian Geographic Society announced today that it will donate $50,000 to the New South Wales and Queensland bushfire emergency for support and recovery. The Society is also appealing to its wide network of followers to dig deep and contribute to the appeal to help those directly affected by the tragedy. Money from the fundraiser will be dispersed to support wildlife rescue and rehabilitation, habitat restoration and communities devastated by the fires.
“The Society hopes these funds can help alleviate some of the heartache being suffered by the many Australians affected by these extreme bushfires, and provide support to the many people working hard to help,” said the Chair of the Australian Geographic Society, David Haslingden.
Australian Geographic’s Managing Director, Ms Jo Runciman, said that in addition to the $50,000 being committed directly to the appeal by the Australian Geographic Society, $1 from every purchase made at the Australian Geographic on-line store until 20 December will be donated to the appeal. “The communities of rural Australia have always been among our biggest supporters and we want to give back to those communities and to those supporting them,” she said.
