What Can I Do?

1. Support firefighting, rescue, and disaster relief efforts. The Australian Red Cross, the NSW Rural Fire Service, the WIRES Emergency Wildlife Rescue Fund, and a First Nations Fundraiser are all accepting donations.

2. Buy some books for a good cause. Through the #AuthorsForFireys tag on Twitter, authors are auctioning off books, artwork, and services to raise money for Australia.

3. Donate needed household items. Australian not-for-profit GIVIT is calling for specific donations like bedding, toys, and grocery vouchers. Make a donation offer through their site.

4. Advocate for climate action. Connect with the US Youth Climate Strikes to stay tuned for the next round of protests. (And if you’re over 18, make sure you’re registered to vote!).
