Sports stars help out
Aussie sports stars and celebrities are also doing their bit to help, mainly by donating memorabilia for sale.
Jack will sign and send the helmet to the winning bidder.
Two-time MotoGP champ Casey Stoner has auctioned his 2010 Aragon winning race suit. It is the first time he has parted with any of his “beloved MotoGP memorabilia from my private collection”.
He wore the suit in his final year with Ducati.
The winning bid was $25,700 from a NSW fan.
Deus Ex Machina founder Dare Jennings is raffling off his 1977 Triumph T140V with money raised split among the Australia Red Cross, Save The Animals and Rural Fire Service. It has now closed and we are not yet aware of how much was raised and who got the bike..
There is also a host of bushfire appeals to which you can donate:
To help people looking to donate safely and effectively, the National Bushfire Recovery Agency has published a list of registered charities that accept tax deductible donations and are running bushfire appeals.
The initiative is in response to the difficulty for many in identifying charities and fundraisers with the capacity to deliver relief and whose focus is on bushfire relief or recovery.
People who want to donate to a charity should check the charity’s details on the ACNC Charity Register acnc.gov.au/findacharity. To confirm if their chosen charity has tax deductible status, they can access the ABN link on a charity’s record.
