    Hundreds of thousands of animals have been injured from the fires that have been raging in Australia.

    The Animal Rescue Collective has asked people from all over the world to help take care of these animals by making pouches, wraps and other pieces for the orphaned wildlife.

    We will be gathering to make as many pouches and wraps as we can muster. Sewing is helpful but not necessary. We will need people to cut, iron, sew, organize, pack – all kinds of skill levels will be welcomed!

    Please sign up for a time to work – we have room for about 15 people an hour: Sign Up Here
