Crowdfunder is raising vital funds for groups on the ground in Australia, tackling the bushfire crisis

There are countless stories of devastation emerging around Australia as the country burns.

The bushfires have so far burned more than 12 million acres. They have killed at least 24 people and half a billion animals while nearly 2,000 homes have been destroyed.

Crowdfunder stands in solidarity with communities across the affected areas.

We are raising emergency funds for groups tackling the crisis on the ground, supporting the rescuers in the areas affected by the fires.

We will evenly split the crisis fund between selected three organisations that are dealing with the current threat.

NSW Rural Fire Service

The NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) is the world's largest volunteer fire service and is on the front line in southern Australia.

Australian Red Cross

The Australian Red Cross is supporting thousands of people in evacuation and recovery centres across the country.

Port Macquarie Koala Hospital

The hospital is on the front lines of the effort to rescue and save koala bears from the devastating fires.

Thousands of people have turned to Crowdfunder to tackle the climate crisis from their communities in the UK. What can you do?
