FIRE RESPONSE JAN 7 2020
Brutal fires rage across Australia.
Families and communities have been devastated. They’ve lost everything, or almost everything: pictures of family picnics, favourite sweaters and lucky socks; all the food they had bought for the holidays, the teddy bear they’ve had all their lives; the cosy little beds where their children dream at night; the last silver teaspoon from grandma… Mementos, memories and personal treasures. They’re all gone. Nothing’s left.
Each of us has someone we know, someone we care about, someone we love who is affected. We cannot stand and watch while families and communities try to survive and overcome this.
AIME wants to help, in all the places we work, and beyond; with people we know, and those we are yet to meet. We are gathering a group of at least 100 volunteers to help local organisations that need a hand providing shelter, food, clothing, care and support to those who need it.
We are calling on you – AIME mentors, past and present, and anyone in the AIME network – to support the victims of fires across our country by:
- Volunteering your time to be a one-off AIME mentor, from today until the end of March, working alongside organisations and people helping those affected by the fires.
- Buying our limited edition t-shirt and supporting the Rural Fire Service to fight the fires.
AIME works in schools and communities that have been ravaged by fires in:
We are asking you to be there, and to help us to help organisations and people rebuild homes, restock shelves, and restore their lives.Categorised in: Blog, Kindness Economy, Relational Economics, Sunday Kindness
