People all over the world are doing their bit to help Australia cope with the bushfire crisis. Donations are coming in thick and fast and organisations across the country are working out how best to allocate the sudden influx of funds.
There have been celebrities donating millions and people setting up lemonade stands to raise a few hundred bucks.
But one company has thrown their hat in the ring to try and raise money in a more unconventional way. Geeky Sex Toys have produced a patriotic Down Under Donation Dildo, which just screams Australia.
Not only is the base a map of the country but it's also coloured gold and green (our unofficial colours) and has a koala on the goddamn shaft. It doesn't get more Australian than this.
But the company has decided to sell these bad boys for $69 (teehee) each, with 100 per cent of the profits going towards the bushfire appeal.
Writing on its website, Geek Sex Toys said: "As you may know, all our toys are handmade in this wonderful country that we call home. We are proud Australians and to see our country burning like this is truly heartbreaking.
"The catastrophic spread of bushfires is devastating, and our thoughts go out to all the people, wildlife and land that has been affected throughout Australia.
"It's been less than 48 hours since the launch of our Down-Under Donation Dildo and we've been absolutely amazed at the response.
"We're extremely proud to announce that so far we've raised over $5,000 for the bushfire relief efforts! Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has bought one! It means the world to us, not only as artists, but also as Australians."
The company hasn't yet picked a charity to direct the funds to but it will announce it in due course.
If you thought that was a strange source of bushfire donations, you must not have heard of the drug dealer pledging to donate some of their profits from a weekend.
A screenshot of the dealer sending a mass message to all their contacts went viral last week, showing they intend to dedicate a portion of their takings to the appeal.
The message read: "We will be donating 10% of all purchases this weekend to the bushfires. As alot oe my family have been affected." [sic]
"Not a joke. Actually being legit. Thank you."
We can pretty much bank on the fact that the person won't be putting their hand up for glory once the donation is made.
