The Phoenix-Appeal account and Group were set up in response to the devastating Black Saturday bushfires in Victoria on Saturday 7 February 2008, however the account has continued and supported a range of worthy causes since.
In January 2011, towns in Queensland have come under attack from floods described as freaks of nature. As of 11 January, two days later, 8 people lost their lives and over 70 people reported missing in the flood affected areas, including Toowoomba
Since then a range of appeals have had profits for this account helping with work for those in need. As of Friday 22 June 2012, Phoenix is aiming to raise some funds for the Southern Ash Wildlife Shelter Public Fund which helps wildlife affected by a range of disasters. Initially set up and named after the world-famous Koala, Sam, (which became iconic when she was given a drink of water by a fire fighter), the shelter is currently running an appeal called 10 for Teddy.
