New Canberra Raiders recruit Curtis Scott is aiming to raise $25,000 for bushfire victims, kicking off the campaign with a $5,000 donation of his own. He has set up a GoFundMe campaign and it has already reached donations of $9,000. Nick Cotric, Scott Drinkwater and Brodie Croft are NRL players amongst those making donations.

You can donate here: http://ow.ly/kgmI50xM7SL

Scott announced his campaign on Instagram:

@curtisscott4 on Instagram

Hey everyone let’s all come together and dig deep by donating anything you can to all of those affected by the bush fires.

People/families have lost loved ones and homes and belongings during this tough time, I couldn’t imagine enduring this.

I’m going to start this donation off by donating $5000 to all of those in need.

The target is $25k but’s let’s push past this and do all that we can to help.

Please share this post on all social media so we can raise as much money as possible. Link will be in my bio and also on my story.

Good on him. Hopefully his new team mates and other Raiders fans jump on board.

On a personal note I'm reserving my own contributions to these causes, being in a susceptible area myself.

Wonderful work.

And a good way to ingratiate yourself to a small market community who knows all to well impact these events can have on the community.

Over $20k donated so far. Well and truly on target.

Good to see the Australian cricket team on board with fundraising through their own campaign.

Well done.
