Today, the premium all-inclusive resort provider, Club Med, announces their ongoing donations to support those effected by the devastating bushfires in Australia has reached $30,000. The funds raised will be donated to the WWF Australian and Nature Recovery Fund to help support nature restoration in effected areas.
“Since learning about the fires and seeing the catastrophic effects on the environment, we knew we needed to do our part and began collecting a percentage of sales for donation,” explains Rachael Harding, General Manager of Club Med Australia and New Zealand.
“We’re thrilled to see that $30,000 has been raised already and we will continue our efforts as the fires continue to rage. We are also working with our friends in the industry through various online auctions, fundraisers and raffles. It’s inspiring to see everyone come together for such a worthy cause.”
