American children's TV personality Mr Rogers once implored viewers to 'look for the helpers' during times of devastation and destruction. The Australian bushfires have proven this edict, with thousands of Australian businesses and individuals launching fundraisers as the fires still burn.
Revival: Clothing Drive is one such fundraiser. The Third Quarter Gallery, an art gallery, retail space, and social enterprise, will host a quality second-hand clothing market to raise money for firefighters and victims of the bushfires. This event will take place Sunday 2 February from 10am - 4pm.

The market coincides with Boiling Point, a fundraising exhibition. Boiling Point curates a collection of works by local and international artists that make commentary on the bushfires, climate change, and the watershed moment humanity now finds itself in. The exhibit opens 24 January at 6pm and funds from the sale of works will go to state-based fire brigades, animal rescue, and food banks.
