With the world in shock by scenes of devastation and despair, Australia’s ravaging bushfire season continues to rage on.
At the time of this article, 28 people have died nationwide and more than 1.3 million hectares have been burnt with over 2000 homes destroyed.
Moreover, according to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Australia an estimated 1.25 billion animals have lost their lives, including thousands of koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, kookaburras, cockatoos and honeyeaters.
Currently there are almost 3000 firefighters in New South Wales alone who are battling blazes the size of small European countries.
What’s more, the government-funded organisation leading the fight, NSW RFS (Rural Fire Service), believe roughly 90 per cent of these people are unpaid volunteers.
The night is set to feature a massive lineup showcasing some of Melbourne’s most talented Hip-Hop artists, with all the proceeds being donated directly to the NSW RFS.
Additionally, there will be $2 raffle tickets available for your chance to win some awesome prizes!
