HUGE "Spirit of Summer" Charity Collab kit - Over 1 gig for a small donation for victoria fires!

Spirit of Summer is a charity collab benefiting the Victorian bushfire Appeal. Not only has this affected Australians, but human beings the world over. 29 Australian and international designers have banded together to help support many Australians, animals and communities decimated by one of Australia's worse national disasters.

What happened?
On Saturday, Feb 7, the temperature in Melbourne was 33'c by 9am. By noon it was 40'c and by 2.50 pm soared to 47.9'c (a state record).Thousands of people were also about to start running from the inferno that would become one of Australia's worst peacetime disasters. Trees ignited in the blink of an eye. By the time people heard the roar, it was too late to flee ahead of the flames.Unfortunately no one or nothing could have stopped this inferno that wiped out communities, bushland, and lives within minutes. Many towns now cease to exist!.After watching
interviews with survivors, many say that they cant put into words what
they went through, saw or felt on that day.Here are just a few
pictures(courtesy of google,The Age, SBS & ABC Aust.) of this
horrible disaster:

Thank you so much to everyone who contributed in whatever ways they could to bring this together. Ultimately, small efforts from many people end up being one BIG effort, and I hope that the donations from this Collab will significantly impact the lives of those who have so drastically changed by the fires.
