Australian Fire Relief Charity Raffles

Recommended Posts

Hey Haveners,

 

The staff team and many members of the Art Haven community have collaborated together to raise awareness of the bushfires currently devastating more than half the continent of Australia.

 

Quote

The 2019–20 bushfire season is of notable intensity compared to previous seasons as it has burned an estimated 10.7 million hectares (26 million acres; 107,000 square kilometres; 41,000 square miles), destroyed over 5,900 buildings (including over 2,204 homes) and killed 29 people as of January 11, 2020.  An estimated 1 billion animals have also been killed and some endangered species may be driven to extinction.  The bushfires are regarded by the NSW Rural Fire Service as the worst bushfire season in memory.  In December 2019, the New South Wales Government declared a state of emergency after record-breaking temperatures and prolonged drought exacerbated the bushfires.  -- Wikipedia

 

Art Haven is hosting a raffle to raise funds for all of the firefighters, doctors, nurses, animal rescuers, humanitarians, and other emergency personnel who have been fighting tirelessly to save as many people and animals since the bushfires started.  The funds will also go towards relief efforts for communities who have lost their homes and livelihoods. 

 

There are a total of 32 winnable prizes graciously donated by members of the community and the Art Haven staff team provided as a thank you to those who join our effort.  The price per raffle ticket is set at 5.00 in any currency you choose and you can purchase as many as you like.  100% of the proceeds will go directly to the organizations and crowdfunds listed in the raffle descriptions.  Due to the amount and type of prizes donated, the raffle has been split into two; One raffle with art-based prices and one raffle with miscellaneous prizes.  You are more than welcome to purchase tickets for both respectively.  The raffles will end January 31, 2020.

 

More information is provided in the raffle descriptions.  All organizations are linked so you can find more information about them.

Our Haveners in Australia and the families of all staff and volunteers involved around the world would appreciate any help no matter how big or small.  If you have any questions, please feel free to post them below.

We took donations via our Discord server.  If you'd still like to donate, please PM me with what you'd like to donate and I'll add it to the raffle.
