It’s been a rough start to the year here in Australia but if there’s one thing Australians are good at it’s getting behind one another in a crisis. It’s been nothing short of incredible to see the generosity showed by individuals and communities throughout the country.
While Western Australia has gotten off relatively lightly so far, we’ve still had a few scares through the state and it’s not surprising that there are plenty of venues jumping on board to help raise funds for various charities and organisations across Australia.
Whether you've already donated or not, here are a few places where you can show your support.
We’ll be updating this list regularly so check back often.
Fremantle Spirit Co
Newish kids on the block, Fremantle Spirit Co will be donating $1 from every single one of their deliciously smooth coffees to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.
IPL drinkers will want to head to Mane Liquor immediately if not sooner to get their hands on the Beerfarm's ridiculously good IPL. Beerfarm has donated a keg of this liquid gold to Mane Liquor and every single cent of its sales will go towards bushfire relief.
Duck Duck Bruce And Lions And Tigers
Duck Duck Bruce and Lions and Tigers have already donated 20% of their total takings from the past two weeks to aid disaster relief, but if you haven’t managed to get down to the cafe or restaurant yet you’ll be pleased to hear they are both still matching, dollar for dollar, any donations made to the donation box in store. They’ll be doing this for the coming months, so pop in and drop a few dollars in. The money raised will be split between the Australian Red Cross and GIVIT, an organisation ensuring the right people are getting the astounding amount of donated goods.
Paper Avenue Cafe
Paper Avenue is donating all tips to WIRES and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future, so feel free to drop a few coins (or a few notes) in their tip jar after devouring a delicious breakfast.
Bushfire Bake Sale
Claremont and Cannington
Sue Palmer Cake Creations Perth and Urmy's Cakes have teamed up with their buds at the Australian Cake Decorators Network to put on not one but two bake sales. They'll be happening at Claremont Bunnings and Cannington Bunnings on Sunday 9 February from 10am so get down there and snap up some goodies. All the proceeds will be donated to Vinnies.
With Love From WA At The Rosemount Hotel
Mark Sunday 16 February in your calendar now because there’s nothing better than a Sunday session with a cause. Drapht, Katy Steele, Demon Days and Grace Sanders will be among the artists performing while businesses like Cool Perth Nights, Oztix and plenty more are donating their services to make sure the event runs smoothly. The Rosemount will also be donating a portion of their bar sales so don’t be shy—drink up. Get your tickets here.
The Corner Gallery Reopening 20Twenty Fire Relief Group Show
The Corner Gallery in Subiaco is hosting their Reopening '20twenty Fire Relief' Group Show on 7 February; an exhibition that will see 50% of all sales donated to Koalas In Care Inc., The Rescue Collective, WWF Australia, NSW Rural Fire Service and the Australian Red Cross. They'll also be donating $10 from the sale of each ticket to the second week of their Creative Conference—a three night event happening from Wednesday 19 for young artists, musicians and creatives looking for inspiration, knowledge and connections.
