With the east coast of Australia undergoing a mega climate crisis, tens of thousands of acres of forests and national parks have been burned. While the world is uniting in the wake of the ongoing bushfires, more than 23 victims have lost their lives and almost half a billion animals have been wiped out.
Aside from the beautiful acreage the country is known for, Australia is also home to some of the coolest fashion brands around. Many luxe labels are putting their profits aside and donating 100 percent of their sales to not only aid in firefighting efforts, but also to help displaced animals during the devastations.
Of course many of these brands like Alice McCall and Tony Bianco can be found in the designer index of large retailers like Shopbop and Nordstrom, but thinking twice about where you add to cart can make all the difference.
Below, see which Aussie-brands are taking a stance in helping communities who have been affected amid the wildfires.
We are heartbroken over the loss of lives, homes, wildlife and wilderness resulting from these devastating bushfires across our beautiful country. Our thoughts are with all the individuals and communities who have been affected. We would like to thank all the firefighters, emergency services and volunteers who are working tirelessly to offer relief. You are heroes. On behalf of all our team members, Tony Bianco will be donating 100% of our online and in-store profits on Saturday 11th January to @redcrossau and @wireswildliferescue. We hope this contribution offers some relief to this national tragedy. Team TB x

Australia is currently in the midst of one of the biggest national crises in history this bushfire season. More than 150 fires continue to burn in Victoria and NSW alone with worsening conditions. We have lost 19 lives and over 1,500 homes since October. Over 400 million animals have been lost and entire ecosystems have been destroyed. Our hearts go out to those affected by the fires. This week we will be donating 100% of profits to the @nswrfs to support those at the front working tirelessly to keep us safe.

How can we do nothing when our country is on fire! I am so lost, I have to help. I realised that I have a launch next week and one thing I can do is donate money. So I thought as so many are waiting for the new Maribel to come out - how about I release 10 pieces today and donate 100% to the proceeds to @redcrossau I love my country, I am a mixture of equal parts heartbroken and insanely angry. I hope to do more, help more and be more this year, this is just what I can do right now! Maribel is online now 💔
