See who, and how, you can help.
We’ve seen the news: Australia is being ravaged by wildfires. Millions of animals have died, countless homes have been destroyed, and entire ecosystems have been decimated. Consequently, electronic artists and production companies from all over the world have stepped up to show their support in the face of this climate crisis.
Here’s a list of the giving souls we should all show a little extra love to for their generosity:
First, 100% of Australian native Alison Wonderland’s January sales, as well as all all proceeds from her “climate change is real” shirt, will go to rural fire services in her home country.
Blanke and Enschway.
Next, On January 11, Blanke and Enschway. held a Fire Relief Fund Raver in Sydney. Subsequently, between tickets and bar sales, they raised over $50K for bushfire relief.
Brownies and Lemonade
In addition, LA friends – Brownies and Lemonade is hosting a stacked show full of Aussie artists on January 29. For instance, “Very Special Guests” (!!!) and big surprises are set to be in store for this generous #MakeItRain show.
One of our favorite Aussies, Flume, donated $100K to Australian wildlife rescue WIRE, and posted a hugely informative Instagram story to show how we could help.

In addition, on top of 100% of proceeds going to bushfire relief, Electric Hawk is donating $1 for every retweet on our Twitter post with this article, up to $300. Read more here:

After a negative experience with mangoes in New Zealand and seeing the wildfires firsthand in Australia, Sullivan King created a comical shirt that gave 100% of proceeds to WIRES wildlife rescue and NSW Rural Fire Relief Fund. The shirts sold out in less than two days.
Stating “Australia is like my second home,” Svdden Death promised an unreleased heater to everyone who sent a confirmation of at least a $10 donation to Australian relief funds.
Another Aussie, Throttle, gave part of his ticket sales from his first U.S. tour stop to relief organizations in his home country.
