Catastrophic fires have been ravaging across Australia since September 2019. Over 6 million hectares of land has burnt, 1500 homes destroyed, 120 fires are still burning and surviving animals are facing dire food and water shortages and loss of habitat.
The Luma crew across Melbourne and Los Angeles came together to raise money to help with disaster relief for the Australian bushfires, and we are absolutely blown about by our community's generosity and support. In just under 2 days, we came together to raise nearly $12,000. Luma has pledged to match every dollar our crew donated and our Founder/CEO, Payam Shohadai, has also pledged to personally match contributions. Together, we will be donating $37,000 to the Australian bushfire relief charities below.
All funds raised will be divided evenly and dispersed directly to the following organisations. If you would also like to make a donation, please visit the organisations listed to make a direct contribution - every bit helps!
