Shout out to other local businesses who have already made a huge effort

THT, an ethical salon in JLT donated 100% of profits on January 18 to Animal Rescue and Bushfire Relief, VIVO Fitness hosted a relief run on January 18 and both Emirates and Etihad are doing their bit.

Etihad announced it waived passenger fees and added it will work in partnership with Emirates Red Crescent to raise funds within the UAE to help support bushfire relief and Emirates announced it will donate 10% of all EmiratesRED sales on every flight from 17 January until 16 February 2020 and matching this dollar-for-dollar. The proceeds will go towards the recovery and rebuilding efforts taking place in the communities affected across Australia. Amazing to see so many great contributions from businesses here in the UAE.
