With ongoing bushfires engulfing much of south-east Australia, Grays has launched a major online auction event to raise funds for volunteer firefighters and animal welfare.
The company is calling for Australians to donate their valuable or unused items with all proceeds going towards the bushfire relief. Grays will provide all listings, shipping marketing and logistics across its online platform at no cost.
All proceeds from the auction will be equally distributed to the NSW Rural Fire Service, VIC Country Fire Authority, and WIRES Australian Wildlife Organisation.
“Like all Australians, the team at Grays has watched in horror at the devastation caused during the current bushfire crisis. The team decided to use our auction platform and expertise to launch this major online auction event to raise funds for the people at the front line who are working tirelessly to protect people, homes and animals,” Grays Managing Director Chris Corbin said.

“As Australia’s largest auction platform and with one in five Australians on our database, Grays is committed to helping rebuild after the devastating fires that have affected so many of our customers and vendors. We are calling on all Australians to donate their valuable items to support our amazing volunteers in their important work.”
The auction will commence on February 1, 2020, and will run for one week only. The company encourages individuals and businesses all over Australia to join the fundraising effort in a meaningful way by donating their valuable items and assets.
