Providing Disaster Relief for Australian Bushfires

Australia is in the midst of an unprecedented fire season that has affected millions of acres, destroyed thousands of structures, and claimed dozens of human lives. The so unique Australian wildlife is affected even worse with a preliminary estimate suggesting that almost a billion wild animals are affected.

At Grand Financial solutions we are supporting all those affected by the bushfires through our Making An Impact program. When you choose to do business with us we will make a donation on your behalf. You will plant one tree to restore the unique Australian flora and the rest will be split equally between helping restore affected communities through BlazeAid and treating injured wildlife with the help of the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors.

Together we can make a difference.
