In recent weeks bushfires have continued to burn across parts of Queensland and New South Wales devastating communities and livelihoods in its path.
To assist people suffering in these communities, MOVE Bank has decided to donate the funds from our annual Christmas Hamper Competition to support those impacted by the bushfires. We have selected two very worthy causes and we need your help in deciding how we'll direct our donations.
More information about each appeal is listed below, along with a nomination form where you can select your chosen cause.
Thank you for helping us support those that need it most this Christmas.

The WWF Australia Koala Crisis Appeal with help to restore homes and care for injured wildlife.
