WATCH: Australia Zoo has taken in hundreds of animals affected by the bushfires
Bunnings may be the first place you think of when you realise you need DIY supplies, but it’s also one of Australia’s most iconic fundraiser locations, thanks to the infamous Bunnings sausage sizzle.
This summer has seen the country ravaged by record-breaking temperatures, severe drought, incredible bushfires, destructive hail storms, torrential rain and even a massive dust storm, but none of that has dampened the Australian spirit.
Good people from across Australia have banded together to fundraise for bushfire relief and recovery efforts, to support those who have lost everything, and to rescue our native animals from their burnt homes. But we can still do more.
On Friday January 24, 2020, every Bunnings store across Australia (and even in New Zeland!) will be hosting a sausage sizzle to raise funds for Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.
The barbecue will go from 9am to 4pm, with all profits going to the Red Cross. If you aren’t interested in buying a snag in bread, you can still donate to the cause in store or online.
For those who read our story about Bunnings teaming up with GIVIT to raise funds for those affected by bushfires, we can also happily report that the efforts raised more than $600,000 for those in need.
So, should you be shopping for DIY supplies or power tools over the weekend, be sure to drop in for a snag.
