Australia is in the grip of a bushfire tragedy and needs your help.
Harnessing the generosity of our wonderful global motorsport community including Motorsport Australia, Supercars, the Australian Grand Prix Corporation, ANDRA, Speedway Australia, Motorcycling Australia and the FIA it is hoped to raise much needed funds for critical relief, recovery and support efforts.
Each Australian state government has established its own bushfire disaster appeal, with 100% of all donations being directed to support communities across the country.
Karting is a family sport that is conducted in all Australian States and Territories – most of which have been affected by this disaster. Given the scale of this disaster, you can choose to donate to the national appeal or to a state/territory of your choice.
To access each state’s appeal, please visit The Community Enterprise Foundation.
Furthermore, the Australian Red Cross and the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal operate on a national footprint and are heavily involved in a range of charitable efforts.
Our amazing wildlife has been devastated in huge numbers.
Wildlife carers and volunteers are doing amazing work to look after injured animals. Once the fires are gone, they will require funds to rebuild shelters and enclosures and regenerate native habitat. Most are state or region based but groups like Wires and the WWF are taking a national view of the crisis.
Below are several links to wildlife aligned charitable organisations for your further consideration:
The bushfire risk in Australia is far from over and any support youcan provide will go a long way to help those in need.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
