Weʼve raised £565 to support those who have lost everything during the bushfires in the small village of Cobargo on the Far South Coast of NSW.
- Cobargo, NSW
- Funded on Monday, 4th May 2020
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This fundraising effort is sponsored in part by Together Aware - Mental Health Blog.
The small town of Cobargo and surrounding villages have been decimated by the Bushfires of New Years Eve 2019. The fire that struck around 06:30 am and burned nearly all day has destroyed hundreds of people’s homes, businesses and livelihoods. The photo above shows the main street before and after the fire struck. 3 people have lost their lives battling to save what they had spent their lives building. Great friends of the community father and son Robert and Patrick Salway; 63 and 29 lost their lives defending their home and the community is reeling from such huge loss.
We are raising money to give what we can to those who most need it right here in Cobargo so that they can begin to slowly regather what they have lost.
Please give generously. The need is great.

About the fundraiser
I was born in England but relocated to Australia in 2019 to go to University. I live in Cobargo, NSW with my partner and the village was almost completely destroyed by the fires of NYE 2019. I am desperately trying to raise much needed funds to help those who now have nothing.
