… And in 2020 – Response to Bushfire Emergency

At times like this we wonder what Scarlet would make of the world now and
the changes over the last (almost) eight years since she died. She was always
going to be a climate warrior – obsessing over compost, worrying about waste
and writing “If money grew on trees…” how differently we would
design our cities. So it is a must in 2020 for Scarlet’s Fund to prioritise the
bushfire catastrophe and climate emergency. This week we have made three
donations:

To begin we have committed $1,250 to supporting emergency
wildlife rescue efforts through WIRES in NSW: https://www.wires.org.au/donate/emergency-fund 

We think it’s vital to support policy reform if we are to improve
Australia’s contribution to mitigating climate change globally, so are joining
the ACF’s giving circle Groundswell https://www.groundswellgiving.org/
contributing $2,500 to their climate action campaign through the Climate
Council: https://www.climatecouncil.org.au/.

We are also donating $1,250 to SEED https://www.seedmob.org.au/,
building a movement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people for
climate justice with the Australian Youth Climate Coalition.

All this behoves us to fundraise after a two year hiatus, so we are finally
making available the set of beautiful limited edition lino prints commissioned
from 20 Australian artists in 2016 online. Watch this space over the next few
days…

We will start with this stunning etching by Kevin Foley https://www.portjacksonpress.com.au/artists/kevin-foley
as a special fundraiser for a limited time only SAVEM in SA: https://www.savem.org.au/,
the only wildlife rescuers operating on Kangaroo Island. We are offering this
print unframed for a special price $225/250 (including postage & packaging
in Australia/worldwide). Go to this page to order it.
