By redeeming 100 TerraCycle points, you can help support recovery efforts for people and animals affected by the wildfires.
Australia remains gripped by the devastating impacts of the ongoing wildfires, especially in the southeastern states of New South Wales and Victoria. The massive bushfires have been spreading due to drought, high temperatures, and winds. The current Australian wildfire season is unprecedented in scope and impact—no state in Australia has been spared.
All donations to this fund will support relief and recovery efforts in the regions affected by the Australia Wildfires. The fund will initially help first responders conduct search and rescue operations and meet survivors' urgent needs, including the provision of shelter, medical care, food, and clean water. Once initial relief work is complete, money from this fund will be allocated by GlobalGiving for longer-term recovery efforts—largely led by local organizations.
