By now all of Australian people, businesses and communities would be aware of the severe impact that the intense and unprecedented fires have had on our country. We can’t change the past, but we can be better prepared for the future, as well as start a recovery process. From our perspective, we live in a country that is susceptible and needs Fire prevention, Fire Maintenance, Fire Proofing and Fire Response Plans to protect people, property and wildlife.
Here is Thrill’s top 10 suggestions for business and corporate groups looking to invest in bushfire recovery help. Assisting with genuine care for what has happened by the devastating bushfires throughout NSW, Queensland and Victoria. Each of these programs has been carefully considered and designed. The Thrill Bushfire Recovery Help TBFH activities are not volunteering programs. They are designed to bring awareness, donations and financial help in the form of human labour or building specific items that can make a difference. We all want to help. However patience and appropriate training, skills as well as safety issues can hamper the best intended efforts.
What we are confident in is that the following 8 bush-fire relief programs that your business team can get involved in. Will be beneficial and send a message of hope, support and be contributing in real positive ways to those that have been through fire trauma.

With an empty esky in tow. Created by Melbourne friends Erin Boutros, Eleanor Baillieu and Elise Mason. The campaign launched on Instagram and gained over 10,000 followers in under 24-hours, with social media users sharing their plans to travel locally this year. Travel destinations include those on the South Coast of NSW, which was declared ‘open for business’ by the NSW RFS on January 11. “Australia, we are all so devastated by the disastrous amount of damage caused by the 2020 bushfires,” the campaign wrote in its first post on January 6.” SBS reporting.
