Send US Aid to Help Australia Fires

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

This fire season in Australia is one of the worst the country has seen. An estimated half a billion have been killed in New South Wales. Three of the active 2,700 firefighters were killed. There were about 136 fires burning in NSW on Monday- of which, 69 are not contained. 24 people died this fire season in Australia. A third of the koalas in NSW have been killed, and a third of their habitat was destroyed. The air quality in Sydney was measured to be 11 times the hazardous level due to the smoke. 

The U.S. must send financial aid as well as volunteers to help fight these catastrophic fires. The U.S. is more than capable of sending aid to Australia; to stand by and watch while the country burns would be deplorable.
