YOUNGHARTS BUSHFIRE APPEAL
supporting young Australians affected by the recent bushfires
Long after the fires are out, many young Australians will still be dealing with the effects of the devastating bush fires that swept the nation at the start of 2020.
For young people whose families lost their homes or their livelihoods, the coming months and years will be tough. We want to help them get back on their feet, so we have launched a dedicated Youngharts Bushfire Appeal to raise money to assist young people in need as a result of the fires.
Funds raised will go towards providing scholarships, bursaries, support, and assistance to young people in Australia under the age of 25 who were affected by the recent bushfires.
