Prahran, Australia (PressExposure) April 10, 2009 -- Australian web strategy and web design services company bwired has teamed up with the Frontier Touring Company, one of the key partners behind the overwhelmingly successful Sound Relief benefit concerts to launch another initiative for victims of the Victorian bushfires - this time for the furred and feathered ones. ROCKIN' RELIEF FOR THE RSPCA will be an online charity auction aimed at raising money for the RSPCA's Victorian Bushfire Appeal (http://www.rspcavic.org/campaigns_news/news_bushfires.htm ).
Signed memorabilia, limited edition merchandise, money can't buy opportunities and one-off rock'n'roll items from some of the biggest names in music and entertainment will be auctioned via an online website to raise funds for the RSPCA Victorian Bushfire Appeal. The site, designed and set up courtesy of bwired (www.bwired.com.au), will show the most current auction price but will keep bidder information confidential.
Managing Director of The Frontier Touring Company and the Mushroom Group of Companies Michael Gudinski said the inspiration to host the auction came from within the Mushroom Group. "A lot of my staff, including myself, are pet owners and were horrified when the stories started to filter in about the many animals, native or domestic, that had been hurt or made homeless during the Victorian bushfires.We were doing our part with Sound Relief for the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal but we also wanted to help contribute to the great work that was being done by the RSPCA to help animals."
