The Shane Warne Foundation - Variety And TSWF Bushfire Relief Fund

Dear Friend,

In response to the Bushfire crisis Variety, the children’s charity and The Shane Warne Foundation have teamed up to raise funds for the children affected by the Victorian bushfires. The Shane Warne Foundation kicked off the fund yesterday with a $100,000 donation.

As both organisations are focused on improving the lives of children, the funds will be welcomed by the large numbers who have been affected by this devastation.

After our discussions with authorities, it is essential that children who have been affected by the fires are able to re-establish their routines as quickly as possible”.

As one example, we are in consultation with principals from the schools who are working with the Victorian Education Department as to their response to the crisis… they are assessing which schools will be taking on extra students, which schools will be able to reopen and how best to cover all of the children's needs?”

We are asking that you please support the fund through making a donation on our website or the Variety website Also those who are aware of children who have lost their specialised mobility, communication and other equipment as a result of the fires are encouraged to immediately register these details with Variety, the children’s charity by going to the Variety Victoria website

Over the coming months, Variety and TSWF will be looking at other ways that they are able to lift the spirits of the many children affected by this devastation and make a direct difference.
