Belinda Dimovski, Head of Engagement and Support, Australian Red Cross

The size and scale of these fires in many parts of Australia was unprecedented. But so was the incredible wave of support we saw from people and businesses around the country and overseas. Your donation will ensure our trained staff and volunteers can continue to be there for the long-haul, helping people slowly but surely get back on their feet. We are also giving out emergency grants to help people cover essential costs as they start to rebuild.

We'd like to thank ATCO Employees for leading this incredible initiative and showing such generosity to our emergency teams and the people we help.
