Fundraiser Today to Benefit Austrailian Firefighting Efforts


(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A fundraiser is happening today from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm at the Sleeping Giant Brewery. The all-ages event will collect donations to help firefighting efforts and wildlife relief.

Kate Strange, who has been in Canada for about a year and a half, says that she wanted to do something to help her homeland of Australia during their time of need.

The fires have displaced thousands of people and killed off an unimaginable amount of wildlife. Estimates are at half a billion animals and higher.

Bree and Hailey Hollinsworth are also involved in organizing the fundraiser and have been instrumental in helping make the thought a reality.

Numerous local businesses have donated their goods and services for the cause.

Head down and check it out. There will be custom made candles and shirts for sale as well. Rumour has it the candles available are utterly amazing and the level of quality they achieve is rare for the northern hemisphere. Post pictures of the candles you purchased in the comments.
