Fundraiser a success

Total funds raised $59,260.00

Update, 15th February 2021 – Humans of Kangaroo Island have now also equipped 20 farm firefighters who lost their communication device in the 2019/20 bushfires with replacement UHF’s and car kits. Six strategically located Quick fill pumps have been located around the island to help the community in a severe fire season again. Thank you to The Hospital Research Foundation for their ongoing support with this project. Also a big thank you to locals Brad Jamieson from Jamieson Marine and Peter Ingram from Ingram’s Home and Hardware for helping me organise and hand out the pumps and UHFs. There is no I in team and I couldn’t do it without your support, much appreciated.


People make a place. Kangaroo Island is a tight-knit community of hard-working, positive and self-motivated individuals from all parts of the world that keep inspiring each other every day in every way. Here you find people passionate about farming, food, art, animals and nature and you feel home in a heartbeat as you’re accepted into this warm and welcoming place.
