Per Stirling Volunteers! – Helping Australia
Per Stirling’s Volunteer Initiative began 2020 with focusing efforts on providing relief to all affected by the fires that burned across Australia. In all, about 15 million acres burned across the country, leaving over 1 billion animals in its path either harmed or dead. Over 2,000 homes destroyed and at least 25 people have lost their lives. The damage to the ecosystem has been impactful on a global scale.
With the great distance we are from Australia, we can still do our part in helping those harmed by these fires. Members of Per Stirling made monetary donations to: Australia Wildlife Zoo Hospital, Australian Red Cross, WIRES (Wildlife Rescue) and to the Koala Hospital. Joey Pouches and crocheted nests were handmade and delivered to Australia for the burned/injured animals that have been rescued.
During the month of February, we will focus on raising funds and awareness for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of South-Central Texas.
