We appreciate the donations people have made thus far to our GoFundMe campaign and bushfire appeal to help those former AFP members impacted by these devasting fires all over Australia. To date there has been over $18,000 donated to the AFPFMA Bush Fire Appeal (over $13,000 GoFundMe & $5,000 by direct deposit).
Although there are fires still raging in NSW, ACT and Victoria, we appreciate the need to get support moving quickly. To that end the AFPFMA have just made the first three cash payments to those who lost their homes. A great effort by everyone.
While it is still too early to declare the bush fire season over, we are hoping for an end to this long hot summer. Once the bush fire season is declared over, we can make the final distributions to those former AFP members we know about. To that end, please let us know of any former AFP members you know of who has been impacted by the fires. You can place a response here or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again for the great contributions, monetary and others, people have made. It certainly has made a difference and it shows the Australian mateship is alive and well amongst our Policing community.
If you would like to make a donation, please direct deposit into our account, with the transaction description as “Fire – Your Surname” so we know who it has come from. Thank you for your support.
