Australian toy firm Moose Toys has donated $100k to Australian relief efforts, and will be donating all profits from the Little Live Pets product sales in Australia across the month of January.
A statement from the company read: ‘Like all Australians, watching these devastating fires rage through our beautiful country is heart-breaking. 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. 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.’
