DJs Advocate For Raising Money In Australia During Deadly Fires

Flume Donates 100,000 Dollars, Alison Wonderland Donates Merch Proceeds + More

January 6, 2020

Flume, Steve Aoki, David Guetta, and many other Dance community artists have joined in unison to advocate for Australia. Flume donated almost 100,000 dollars to Wires Wild life rescue to help injured, displaced wildlife.

Recently, hundreds of homes have been destroyed. At least 20 people have died, and half a billion animals have been lost due to the raging bushfires in Australia. Devastating images have surfaced of burnt wildlife and blood red skies, adding sense of urgency to the ongoing climate crisis.

So so so sad. It’s breaking my heart. My home is on fire. I’m donating $100,000 to @wireswildliferescue to help injured, displaced wildlife. Please watch my story to find out how you can help @australia

This is a horrible, dark time and as our beautiful country continues to burn I wanted to do anything I could in the best way I can. @enschway and I would love to see you this Saturday night at Carmens. All proceeds will go to help support those so horribly affected. Big ups @kyleohalloran_ and @darcystewart___ for pulling this Together. I love you Australia.

David Guetta and Showtek put things in simpler terms but let the photo show how impactful this can be. 

David Guetta writes, "All my thoughts to Australia, what are we doing with our planet?" 

By sharing these powerful messages, we can urge people to help contribute to the cause. 

All my thoughts to Australia, what are we doing with our planet ?

It’s unbelievable to see what this planet is turning into. The climate crisis is no joke but we all seem to look the other way when it comes to making real changes. We need to change the way we live and eat to make sure we can save this planet so animals and people don’t have to suffer like this. Make a difference yourself because no one will do it for you! Please donate anything you can to help! Link in bio ❤-- -- -- -- -- -- ------

I’m so proud and honoured to be an Australian. I come from one of the most beautiful countries in the world, but unfortunately my home state of NSW has now been declared a State of Emergency. Hundreds of bushfires have wreaked havoc down under where temperatures soar as high as 50 °C / 122 °F. Many have lost lives, tens of thousands have been evacuated from their homes and our wildlife has suffered unimaginable loss throughout the country. The fight against our burning landscape depends on thousands of brave and selfless volunteers giving their all to battle the blazes on the frontlines. If you would like to help, please donate to the NSW Rural Fire Service by visiting the link in my bio.

WOW ❤️ Thank you to everyone that showed up and showed out last night. we raised $44,500 through ticket sales, merch sales and donations. Our heart breaks for the victims so we have decided alongside the Espy that we are are going to round up that figure to $50,000. The donation will be split evenly amongst RFS-QLD, RFS-NSW, CFA-VIC & Red Cross Fire Appeal. Thank YOU again but mostly, thank you to the firefighters and volunteers who risk their lives to fight fires and save lives, Australia is so lucky to have you ❤️ Thank you everyone involved including (and not limited to): @hotelesplanadestkilda , @bensonaus @tonesandi , @gflip , @colourblindlighting , @jpjaudio, @swsmelb , @partywithmimi and all our amazing crew behind the scenes xx
