Victoria’s Country Fire Authority and the NSW Rural Fire Service are running their own donations for those wanting to support the firefighters. They are accepting cash donations only.
Red Cross doesn’t have a specific bushfire fundraiser, but it’s raising money through its Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.Advertisement
The charity is calling for cash donations, and it has raised more than $8 million since New Year’s Eve.
“We appreciate that everybody wants to help, but donating money is a more direct way to provide cash grants to people who have lost their homes,” a spokesman said.
“When people have cash in their own pockets, they can spend it in their own communities.”
