Fundraiser: Buy This Artwork and Support the Bushfire Crisis in Australia

January 9, 2020

Christopher Jobson

Earlier this week we were sent this heartbreaking new animation from Oh Yeah Wow (previously) that was created in direct response to the horrific Bushfire Crisis currently unfolding across Australia. Titled “Tomorrow’s on Fire,” the short addresses the collective hopelessness felt in the face of political inaction, and the loss of 28 lives, thousands of homes, and potentially hundreds of millions of animals, in a fire season greatly exacerbated by the effects of global warming.

Oh Yeah Wow’s animation inspired us to put together a quick fundraiser. We reached out to artists across the globe and asked if anyone might be willing to donate a print, painting, or object, with a percentage of sales going toward humanitarian, wildlife, and firefighter support in Australia. More than 50 artists answered the call offering their work, so many that we were unable to include everyone here. All the pieces below are available now, with proceeds going toward various relief organizations. Click through to each work to see the terms and beneficiary.

Thank you to everyone for contributing. It means the world. If you’re unable to afford a purchase right now, please consider donating directly to the Wildlife Victoria. Without further adieu, PLEASE buy this art.
