FinTech industry updates: Issue paper submitted, FA got a new website!
|Welcome back to 2020, I hope that everyone had a great end of year break with friends and family.|
However, I want to touch on a more serious note. Over the break, many families suffered an extreme amount of devastation across the country as a result of the bushfire disaster.
I encourage everyone in the community to do as much as they can to support those in need. Whether that is helping at a food/supplies drive, volunteering at a relief shelter or donating.
To assist in this, FinTech Australia has collated a list of links to help steer any volunteering or donation efforts to where they are needed.
NSW Rural Fire Service donations and sponsorship:
Victorian Bush Fire Appeal:
