We are absolutely devastated by the impact the bushfires have had across Australia in recent weeks and months. 

Metalbird Australia, in conjuction with our sister company animalia-art, is donating $5,000 to be shared between Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery and WWF Australia. In addition, we will donate 20% of all online sales from today for the next 4 weeks.

The remainder of the Metalbird family, Metalbird NZUSAUK and Europe, will be donating a % of their sales over the weekend of Australia Day. 

Where does my money go to?

- The Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery team are using $15 million of the donated funds to assist people who need immediate care. 

They are also supplying shelter and relief supplies to all those who are still being affected by the bushfires and will provide ongoing psychological care. 

- WWF Australia is specifically looking after our wildlife and nature. Over 10 million hectares of land have burned and 1.25 billion animals have been killed with those remaining having little or no home. WWF will use their funds to respond to all injured animals throughout Australia, helping to replenish their homes and food sources.

 How else can I help?

There are many ways that you can support the Bushfire relief efforts with every little bit counting. 
Below is a list of a few of the other foundations that you can donate to:
