Bucketlist threw on an event on February 9th to try and help raise money for Australia in Montreal.
Montreal local artists such as Lee Baum of The Damn Truth, Hanorah, Danny Rebel and Finding Emo contributed to performing for the event while we had a projector screen held up showing videos of what Australia looks like now.
The enormous generosity was absolutely incredible to see. We have raised over 1100$ and Danny Rebel donated one of his gorgeous paintings for auction that he spent hours on.
The 2019–20 Australian bushfire season began with several serious uncontrolled fires in June 2019. Hundreds of fires have been or still are burning, mainly in the southeast of the country. Multiple states of emergency were declared across New South Wales, Victoria, and the Australian Capital Territory.
A staggering 1 billion animals are now estimated dead in Australia’s fires. The number of kangaroos, koalas, and others killed keeps skyrocketing.
We donated our raised funds to the Australian Red Cross and the Wildlife Rescue South Coast. Do the same! It’s not too late. They need all the help they can get.
Thanks again to everyone who contributed to this event.
