Community encouraged to dig deep for SA Bushfire Appeal

The State Government has expanded its SA Bushfire Appeal to raise much-needed funds for South Australians directly affected by the recent bushfires on Kangaroo Island – and everyone is encouraged to give generously.

An additional $1 million has been pledged by the government to help the Kangaroo Island community rebuild, on top of the $1 million already committed for those affected by the Cudlee Creek bushfire.

The SA Bushfire Appeal will be the primary appeal for South Australia’s emergency relief effort, raising money for the State Emergency Relief Fund.

Every dollar donated to the SA Bushfire Appeal will go to South Australians who are doing it tough and every dollar makes a difference. All donations over $2 to the SA Bushfire Appeal are tax deductible.

Learn more or make a donation online. You can also ‘Like’ the SA Bushfire Appeal Facebook page.
