Leyburn Entrepreneur Hannah Russell launches new designs to help Australia’s wildfires

Leyburn author Hannah Russell and businesswoman has launched two designs to help Australia’s wildfires. Over 8.4 million hectares of land has currently been burned to the ground due to these devastating sweeping wildfires. Millions of animals have lost their lives or are being injured in the horrendous fires and animals are continuing to be rescued. 

Hannah Russell from Leyburn has launched two designs of koalas which have been printed on to clothing and merchandise with 100% of the funds going to Australian wildlife animal charities. The money raised will assist with emergency veterinary care and scientific intervention such as exploring supplementary feeding for animals who have survived, but whose habitats have been destroyed in the bush fires. 

Hannah said ‘I have been left devastated by the ongoing emerging news from Australia and being in the UK I feel pretty helpless in how I could help. I started to think about things I could do using the business resources I have and put a plan in place last week. Over the weekend I launched the designs and have had a large number of orders so far, so I’m hoping that continues. One of the companies I work with on the clothing has pledged to double what I raise from the clothing, which is brilliant and will go towards helping the animals’

Unfortunately, there is currently no clear end in sight for the bush fires and experts say it could last months. Numerous charities are currently working around the clock to try and save Australia’s animals… So let’s help them as much as we can by raising vital funds to save as many of the animals affected by these devastating wildfires.
