Our hearts go out to all those affected by the bushfires. Our team has been working on ways to make positive contributions to bushfire relief and we encourage everyone to do what they can to help. Individuals in our team have been volunteering their time over the holidays and weekends, Sense is working with #creativesforbushfires to assist charities and fundraising initiatives, and we've made financial contributions to the RFS and Wildlife Victoria.
There are so many ways to support Bushfire relief including volunteering, shopping with bushfire affected businesses, donating to one of the listed organisations below, or attending an event that supports bushfire relief.
We’ve done some digging to find venues and upcoming events that are supporting bushfire relief. It’s not too late to get involved.
