Update: Australian Bushfires Appeal – Thank You from Microsoft News

Dear Microsoft News readers,

Thank you!

Your generosity has been nothing short of astonishing throughout Australia’s devastating bushfires crisis. 

Since November 12 readers around the world have now donated over $492,000 USD to assist communities ravaged by fires across the nation. 

It’s not only Australian readers digging deep. In a spirit kindred to that which saw a large team of US firefighters arrive here this week, readers of Microsoft News US, Canada, UK, Japan, Singapore, Poland, Switzerland and others have also donated tens of thousands of dollars.

The money you have donated goes directly the Australian Red Cross, The Salvation Army and St. Vincent De Paul Society NSW, to help our communities, our firefighters, and the many volunteers among them, who are working tirelessly to protect.

On behalf of Microsoft News Australia, thank you again. Your generosity has a real impact. 

To support relief efforts, please donate here.
