People whose homes were destroyed or structurally damaged, as well as people hospitalised for injuries in the fires, can apply for an emergency grant at redcross.org.au/grants.

Donations of clothing are accepted at Red Cross Shops. To find a Red Cross Shop near you, visit redcross.org.au/stores.
Red Cross is unable to accept or distribute donated goods during an emergency. Please visit Foodbank or GIVIT to match your donation of goods to identified needs in bushfire affected communities.
Can I use the Red Cross logo in my fundraising?
We’re really grateful that you are raising funds for our disaster relief and recovery work. We do need to ask you not to use the Australian Red Cross logo, or the red cross emblem (red cross on a white background), in any of your promotions or social media.
The reason is because it’s not just a logo – the emblem is protected under international law and is used in times in conflict to mean ‘don’t shoot – help is here and we are not part of the fight’.
You can use the Australian Red Cross name, but we ask that you make it clear that your event is not a Red Cross event. You can say things like ‘Proudly supporting Red Cross’ or ‘Proceeds donated to Red Cross’. If you need any more info, our humanitarian law team is grateful for your support and would be happy to help.
