On Sunday February 16, 2020 Sony Foundation supporter TEG brought together the music industry for the Fire Fight Australia Concert, raising an incredible $9.5 million for communities most affected by the Australian Bushfires.
During the concert, Sony Foundation ambassador, Guy Sebastian, presented a cheque for $200,000 on behalf of Sony Foundation to the bushfire appeal, to kick start our support of those most affected by this devastating disaster. Sony Foundation has always been about helping young people falling through the gap and we hope this donation will give young people who have suffered from this tragedy a much-needed hand up and hope to rebuild their lives.
A massive thank you to all the Sony Music artists Amy Shark, Conrad Sewell, Daryl Braithwaite, Delta Goodrem, Guy Sebastian, ILLY, Jessica Mauboy, John Farnham, Olivia Newton-John and Peking Duk who came out to support this initiative and delivered such powerful and empowering performances.

Sony Foundation will continue to work in collaboration with organisations on the ground to indentify solutions to long term issues that will benefit young Australians, in communities most affected.
