      I am an Australian, and every time I see the generous donations from overseas people I am humbled. I cry every day with the constant news of what we have lost. Lives, homes, and our precious wildlife. I am scared at how this will impact us all. How will we ever be able to repair our country? How will will we ever be the same again? Will my grand children ever see a bandicoot, a rock wallaby, a bat, a Pygmy possum? How many of our species will be beyond us? So many were threatened before these fires, I am frightened we have lost many of these. Our country is in crisis in so many ways. Climate control is real. Thank you Ellen for your generosity and for allowing me a chance to express myself to someone overseas who really cares. Julie

          How can we know that they will actually see/be able to use this money? Please be careful who you trust and donate to guys. I do not recommend the Red Cross, either. Try donating directly to someone if you can.

This is globally important for the environment and also for the wildlife. The koala 🐨 is primarily on the Eastern side of Australia where the bushfires are worst. They have born the brunt of the fires with their only source of food and water destroyed. They tend to run to the tops of the trees as the fire approaches and pay the heaviest cost. It will take a year for the eucalyptus trees to regrow and provide enough food for those that survived. Tens of thousands have perished. The funds collected will ensure the survival of these iconic species.
