Australia Wildfire Relief

January 15, 2020

Last week, we attempted something we have never done before. 

We asked for help to support a cause that was outside our traditional microloan program.

Learning of the devastating impacts of the Australia bush fires, we wanted to personally help. We turned to our community to amplify our efforts.

And you did not disappoint.

Dozens of you joined us in purchasing Australia totes where proceeds support the Australian Red Cross and WIRES Wildlife Rescue.

Together we raised over $1,200 to date that has been directly donated to these charities. Check it out!

 

These donations will provide critical support to the communities impacted by the fires, as well as help rescue and rehabilitate the injured animals.

Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this catastrophe. And we pray for the protection of the local fire service members who are battling so hard on the front lines, the people who are evacuating from their homes, and the animals who are fleeing from their habitats.

Without you, none of this would be possible.

To everyone who helped, THANK YOU!

"Singapore is a country where old and new exist side-by-side.

From walking downtown through the streets lined with gleaming skyscrapers, to stumbling upon temples that are over a hundred years old, and to discovering a carefully preserved city block of traditional shop-fronts that date back to colonial days.
