Update on Bushfire fundraising activities and ideas

I’m in the process of sourcing companies on the coast to provide their services as prizes for a raffle to raise funds for the bushfire victims – with all proceeds to go to Red Cross.

Here are some more activities that caught my eye;

Toy Society is helping with handmade toys

Handmade help has a list of those crafty sorts that are offering the proceeds or a portion of the sales from their goods.

The Girl Guides Victoria continues to do their good work with offering their services.

Pro Bono Australia offers some advice on how people can help.

More to come….

Victorian Bushfires – How every little bit helps

I’ve been doing some thinking as to what different companies could do to assist those in Victoria. At this stage money is most needed – according to reports on TV and radio.

So after doing some digging around here’s a selection of what I’ve found;

Kids Style File has indicated that for every person that becomes a fan on their Facebook page they’ll donate 20c to The Red Cross. (From a PR perspective I think this is a great idea that promotes the company & their good deeds.)

On Friday Coles will be donating all of their profits to The Red Cross.

A tentative date has been proposed for a celebrity event organised by Matt Norman on Facebook.

The AFL will donate procceds from Friday’s game between Essendon and the Bulldogs.

Nova networks have redirected their start page to provide information on how people can donate money MMM has also started their own fund-raising initiative, as has i98 and the Central Coast’s Sea FM .

More will be posted as they come to hand.
