Australia is burning. Donating directly is the best way to help, but it’s not the only way. Your morning coffee, your lunchtime sandwich, your post-work cocktail – bought at the right places, these small, everyday purchases can also aid bushfire relief. These restaurants, cafes, shops and bars and other businesses are all doing their part.
