My heart is breaking for the bush fire victims, firefighters and their families and the animals who have been affected through this disaster. I feel quite overwhelmed with the scale of the devastation and how to help. WYW have made donations to the NSW Rural Fire Service and Wires and I hope to continue supporting these causes and more to aid recovery efforts.
Below is a helpful post on ways to donate money to make the most difference. This list doesn't provide all the ways to help but is a great start.
