Australia is burning, and we need your help.

The wildfires in Australia have been raging since September, and the situation has become quite dire. A third of koalas and half a billion other species have been lost, and at least 17 people have died. More than 11 million acres of forest have burned. In comparison, the fires in the Amazon burned 2 million acres. There are so many firefighters working to put out the fires and volunteering their time, and we need your help to support their efforts.
