Cold And Rainy Day Does Not Stop Roosevelt Island Girl Scouts From Raising Awareness And Funds For Australia To Stop The Bushfires - We're Trying To Help People And Animals Whose Houses Are Burning Down Says One RI Girl Scout

As reported earlier this week, Roosevelt Island Girl Scout Troop 3233:

... will be having a Fundraiser this Saturday January25th, to support the reconstruction efforts for the Australia Bushfire Crisis.

The crisis is unprecedented and the situation is very alarming. RI is a place where a lot of us come from different countries, and our Girl Scouts have the opportunity to make this World a better place and to help out.

Our troop has an opportunity to send the money directly to the Girl Guides of Australia Bushfire Crisis fund as we have an Australian family in our troop.
The cold and rain today did not stop these Roosevelt Island Girl Scouts

from raising awareness and funds at the Farmers Market to support Australian bushfire relief efforts.

As one of the Girl Scouts told me:
We're trying to raise money to donate to Australia to stop the bushfires and help the animals and families whose houses are burning down...

Great job by the Roosevelt Island Girl Scouts.
