I was amazed by the love that filled the room at Campos Coffee in downtown Salt Lake City. Campos Coffee held “Rebuilding our Roots fundraiser: To Australia with Love” on February 13th. There were over 50 people in attendance.

With fun auction items that included an all-expenses-paid trip to Australia, Australian art, signed Utah Jazz jerseys and Donavon Mitchell’s sneakers, the bids were flowing in.

Campos Coffee raised $13,000. An incredible amount of money that is being donated to WIRES, an Australian wildlife rescue organization. This money will be used to save the lives of thousands of native animals affected by the bushfires.

If you were not able to make it to this wonderful event, there are still ways to help. The bushfires continue to take a toll on Australian wildlife and organizations like WIRES need all the donations they can get.
