Floods have devastated the Northern Rivers.
We’ve watched homes and cars destroyed, belongings battered and gone; things people have spent their lifetimes’ building. We’ve seen roads collapse and wash away, hills turn into mudslides, and entire forests upheaved. Thousands of us have lost access to food, water, electricity, medical equipment, telecommunications, and just basic supplies, with little relief.
Items ready for you to bid on or buy-now include luxury escapes to accommodation such as Rae’s on Wategos and Eden Currumbin Valley, one on one sessions with Flume and Matt Corby, experiential packages including URBNSURF, VIP tickets with backstage access and meet and greets, custom guitars, craft beer brewing, overseas trips, merch packs, commissioned art, rare collectables, business development sessions, and in-store vouchers. Organisers say there is something for everyone.
At the end of the auctions, all donations will be split three ways to:
1. Good360’s NSW Flood Appeal: Good360 is a matchmaker, connecting brand-new goods donated by businesses to people and communities who need them the most. Good360 gets the right goods, to the right people, and at the right time, helping through all stages of disaster recovery. Their goal’s to help local communities recover and rebuild, all the while providing hope and dignity.
2. Bundjalung Community Flood Raiser by Koori Mail: Koori Mail is WHOLLY owned by five Bundjalung Aboriginal community organisations: Bundjalung Tribal Society at Lismore, Bunjum Co-operative at Cabbage Tree Island, Buyinbin Co-operative at Casino, Kurrachee Cooperative at Coraki, Nungera Co-operative at Maclean. Your donation will support these communities to rebuild in the wake of these floods.
3. Byron Community Centre in partnership with the Northern Rivers Community Foundation: Your donation will go through the Byron Community Centre, who are working in partnership with the Northern Rivers Community Foundation, to ensure every dollar will be 100% provided to locally-based needs. The Flood Relief Fund will distribute the donations via immediate grants to community organisations across the region for the quickest and most effective support. Your donation will support community and neighbourhood centres, emergency relief hubs, housing and homelessness services, support groups for domestic violence and mental health, crisis support, food pantries, and environment and wildlife conservation organisations.
Air Auctioneer has generously donated the use of their platform. Stripe will take a 1.75% processing fee we cannot avoid, however a donor is personally covering this cost. No organiser or admin fees. Everything has been donated. Which means that EVERY dollar raised will be directly donated.
