My whole team and I have been heartbroken to see the devastating effects this Summer’s bushfires have had on our country.
I lined up at my local bowling club on the weekend to drop off some much-needed supplies of food and water so it could be trucked to affected areas. I was gobsmacked by the scene I saw there. Hundreds of people had rallied with one day’s notice to sort and re-pack items that the community had dropped off to the club.
It was a great reminder to myself and my young daughters, that we not only live in the best country in the world but when faced with devastating times, we can make a difference by working together.
We're a small business that has had the pleasure of inspiring kids around the country; in both the big cities and the small community-based country towns. We have so many employees, customers, schools and friends who have been impacted by these fires.
I am so inspired by the generosity of so many people across Australia and the world. The Code Camp team would like to join the fundraising efforts and help those who need it most.
Without the extraordinary dedication of our volunteer firefighters and so many others, the impact would be much more severe. It’s for this reason we’ve decided to 100% of profits on bookings made for 24 hours from 2pm on Tuesday 7 January to one of the five charities listed below.

If you were planning to book your child into their next camp, we would love your support to help raise as much as possible.
UPDATE: $7,600 was raised for the charities listed below, thank you for your incredible support!

NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service
It is impossible to estimate the number of native animals that have perished or how many more will be lost in the fires, or to predict the impact that dire food and water shortages, as well as habitat loss caused by the fires and drought, will have on wild populations.
