Australia is burning and we can help.
For the month of January, Koala Clip will be donating 100% of our profits to support the efforts of fighting the fires in Australia and caring for the animals being rescued.
Our inspiration behind the clip came after my kids were born and I wanted my phone available in case of an emergency. Just like parent Koalas carrying their babies on their back, Koala Clip allowed me to have my freedom with still being available for my kids. Seeing these poor animals burn is 💔💔💔.
We will be splitting our donation between Red Cross Australia and WWF Australia.
If you prefer to donate directly, here are a few resources:
- Run for Australia (a virtual run with 100% proceeds going to Australia).
- Red Cross Australia
- WWF Australia (they are particularly focused on Koalas)
- WIRES Wildlife Rescue, Australia's largest wildlife rescue organization, is based in hard-hit New South Wales. (WIRES stands for Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service.) WIRES volunteers go into the burned areas after it's safe to do so and rescue what animals they can, though some are hurt so badly they must be euthanized.
- You can also donate to Zoos Victoria's bushfire emergency wildlife fund, which uses donations to help fund emergency veterinary assistance and scientific intervention.
There are a lot more places your resources can be sent too. Please consider giving what you can.
