Moose Toys donates $100,000 to Australian wildfire relief effort

Published on: 10th January 2020

The Australian-owned company is donating all profits from the sales of Little Live Pets in the country during January. 

As numerous wildfires continue to sweep across Australia, leaving eight people and 1b animals dead, destroying thousands of homes and millions of acres of the land, Australian-owned Moose Toys has announced that it will be making a substantial donation to the relief efforts taking place in the country.

In a post on LinkedIn, the company stated: “Like all Australians, watching these devastating fires rage through our beautiful country is heartbreaking. Hearing of the loss of lives, homes, and wildlife is unfathomable and leaves us with such a sense of helplessness. Our hearts are with all of those affected.

Our team members are banding together to donate to some truly awe-inspiring charities, to which Moose will be matching dollar for dollar their donations. (see below for details)

We, as a company, have donated $100,000 to help with the relief effort and will be donating ALL profits from the Little Live Pets product sales in Australia across the month of January.

Whilst the above will help towards the immediate relief needs, we know the road ahead is a long one and as a proudly Australian company we are committed to the long term recovery. We look forward to sharing these plans with you in the coming months.”
