Bushfire Fundraising Ideas

Support Our Rural Communities Through The Devastating Fires

Australia has over 10,000 fire affected farmers and 10 million farm animals that need assistance in recovering from the devastation of our nationwide tragedy. Help us raise $25 million to provide these farmers with $2,500 worth of recovery support through water, fodder (hay), financial assistance and pre-paid visa cards.

If you’re interested in helping us raise funds for our farmers in fire affected areas, check out some of the ideas of how you can help below divided in three different categories (or hit the ‘Donate Now’ button to make a donation).

Recycling helps makes the world a better place, but what if it could have an even bigger impact? When you donate your bottles to any TOMRA Recycling Location, you’re also helping us raise money for our rural communities. Just hit the donate button on the machine.

Office Morning Tea

Host an office-wide morning tea and encourage all participants to make a donation to rural fire-affected families. Just $20 is enough to buy a bale of hay to feed their precious livestock and remove some stress from their shoulders.

Create A Fundraising Page

No matter how big or small your business is, when everybody joins together and digs deep, the effect is far-reaching. Create your own fundraising page by adding a message to your community, uploading a logo or photo, and sharing your unique link.

Australia’s farmers are in the midst of the worst drought in history, and now much face the fallout of disastrous fires. Help us give them fresh drinking water, financial help, and hay for their livestock by generously donating a percentage of your business’s sales.

By signing up for our Truck Poster at your office or business, you can show your team and customers that just a small amount – $20 has the power to make a big impact. When you’ve filled the poster with donor’s stickers, you’ve raised enough for an entire truckload of hay!

Some of the most successful fundraisers start with the passion of a single person. If you are looking for a way to make a difference, please check out our list below of the many fun and impactful ways that you can support our farmers and their families during this devastating fire.
