Teia and Deion Tan have raised more than $3000 after running a donation drive at their school for a week. All of the proceeds will go to the Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Incorporated - Australia's largest wildlife rescue organization.

Two students from Saint Anthony Catholic School have exceeded their goal of raising $1000 to help recovery efforts for the Australia bushfires.

Teia and Deion Tan have raised more than $3000 after running a donation drive at their school for a week. All of the proceeds will go to the Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Incorporated – Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organization.

But they didn’t do it alone. Every person who donated at least $25 received a stuffed koala or bear and when supplies of the toys ran out, a local business came to help.

To assist the Tan siblings, Gumamon donated merchandise to the drive, says General Manager Greynold Grande.

“We actually donated plush toys. They’re the medium-sized plush toys. We donated them when Saint Anthony needed a backorder because they ran out of plush toys to give to the students as a thank you,” Grande said.

Teia and Deion would like to thank the community for their help in supporting their cause. The total amount they collected was $3,010.
