Right now, Australia is being consumed by what is said to be the nation’s worst case of wildfire. The bushfires, fuelled by dry weather and strong winds, have swept across swathes of land, destroying the lives of people and animals alike. If you’d like to lend a helping hand to help those affected by the devastating crisis, consider donating to the Singapore Red Cross Society, or visit these local businesses that are playing a small part.

Put your crafty fingers to good use – those who know how to sew, knit, or crochet can help make bat wraps, joey punches, and crochet nests for the orphaned wildlife in Australia. Patterns and more information are available at the Facebook group Singapore Rescue Crafters Connect. Travelling to Australia soon? You can also help the group by bringing the handwoven items over to the rescuers.
