For the past few weeks, we have been asking for donations to provide relief for the Australia brushfires. We have been so amazed by donors from all across the world stepping up to help in our efforts. In total, we have raised $984!!! With all of your help, we are so excited to announce our partnership with the Koala Hospital of Port Macquarie NSW.
The Koala Hospital was established in 1973 as a koala conservation organization. Since then, they have been able to build 8 Intensive Care Units, 6 outdoor intensive care units and 33 rehabilitation yards. They have also been a major mover and shaker for helping animals that suffered from the brushfires. Their main goal is to create drinking stations to provide these animals with fresh water. “Deployment of the drinking stations began in December with 13 placed in bush land in northern and western NSW and Taree, to help in koala and wildlife survival. Since the start of January, five have been delivered to the Blue Mountains region, eight out west for drought areas, last week two were placed in Crowdy Bay National Park and four will be installed in the Lake Innes area this week.”
Additionally, your donations will provide intensive care for burn victims. Check out the photo below of two burn victims that are currently being treated at the Koala Hospital.
Again, we want to thank every person that donated or spread the word about what we are doing. Because of these donations, we are able to make a big impact that not only aligns with our mission of saving the environment but also will make a huge difference for creatures that suffered because of the tragic brushfires.
