Nick Is Doing His Part To Help Out In Australia -- And You Can Too!

Since the middle of last year, Australia has been on fire. To date, 28 people have lost their lives, thousands of homes have been destroyed and over half a billion animals have been affected by these devastating bushfires tearing through many parts of the beautiful country. 


Having visited the Land Down Under multiple times throughout his nearly 27 years as a Backstreet Boy and competing on Dancing With The Stars with Aussie pro dancer, Sharna Burgess, there’s no doubt that Nick Carter felt it was important to get involved with helping in the aid and recovery of affected areas. 


This is where Craig De Meillon comes in. In looking for a way to help, Nick found Craig, a firefighter from Western Australia, who has set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds that will go to providing those affected by the fire with things they need by putting items directly into their hands. Since he has been on the ground to aid in relief efforts, he has been updating his progress on the page. See updates and / or make a donation of your own here. Craig has also advocated for donating to Reach Out Worldwide, which you can read about here.


The Backstreet Boys, who will be touching down in Australia in May as a part of their DNA World Tour, are also doing their part to help out! They are giving fans the opportunity to bid on two very special VIP packages that include 4 tickets, meet and greets, a selfie video and more to the shows in Melbourne and Sydney. The proceeds from the auction will be distributed to wildlife shelters and caregivers to help rebuild enclosures and equipment that they have lost in the fires so that they can continue their life saving work, and support those that are struggling to cope with the enormous number of animals that will need care in the coming weeks and months. You can bid here. Good luck to everyone entering!

    This is amazing what Nick and the Boys are doing. And all the people in Australia, helping each other, helping animals... Also, all the firefighters like Craig, fighting so hard to stop this. I heard it was raining today in Australia. What a relief!
    But still, people let's help, donate, whatever you can! It is all so heartbreaking!
