The Australia bushfires have been raging for the past 5 months, burning over 18 million hectares of land, killing 1 billion animals, over 30 people and destroying over 3000 homes. As an Australian founded media source it is with heavy hearts that we have been witnessing the devastating fire wreaking havoc to our homes.
As a result, we took action, planning a fundraising event and auction on the 23rd of January at The Friend Bar in Los Angeles. We had a great night, raising just over $2000 to help support the fight against the Australia bushfires, with 100% of proceeds being split between WIRES Wildlife Rescue and the First Nations Relief Fund.
For the fundraiser we brought together an iconic team of musicians & artists including:
DJ’s Giselle Peppers, Nina Las Vegas, Kito, Silver & Smoke, Nar, Memu and Sydney Graham. Visual Artists Auction including Sarah Bahbah, Jason Ebeyer, Nedda Afsari, Bei Badgirl, Ashley Lukashevsky, Shyama Golden and ByMelianJ
Gifts for raffle from: Silencio Mezcal, Noho Candle Co, Goodmylk, PuffCo, Recess, Goldthread, Botanica Market, OWL Venice, PF Candle Co, Live Amaz, Vidakush, Busted Brand, Hopeless Lingerie, JBC Lingerie, Kora Cosmetics, and The Good Patch.
