Donating all January album sales to Australian bushfire wildlife relief efforts

I'm putting all of my album sales toward the preservation and restoration of wildlife in Australia following and during the fires this summer.
Specifically I'm sending money to the following two charities - the first supplies food and medical support to injured animals who've survived the fires, and the second is intended to restore habitat once the fires stop:
https://mkc.org.au/donations/trcqld
https://www.wwf.org.au/get-involved/bushfire-emergency

Also I'm going to be matching all albums sales with my own donations, dollar-for-dollar to a maximum of $200.
As you probably know, over 500 million animals have died in the fires so far, mostly native species. A third of all koalas in NSW have been killed as they are slow-moving.

Here's the albums:
https://xolve.bandcamp.com (game soundtracks and electronica)
https://onefatalpunch.bandcamp.com (progressive alt/industrial metal)
https://thelorax.bandcamp.com (progressive acoustic)

ps. Will post a screenshot of the donations made at end of month- if any are made.

FWIW, not many donated/purchased, but I've going ahead and donating the amount + my own dollar-for-dollar match, ignoring the amount which bandcamp and the credit card services subtract and donating what the users spent:


I'd already made a personal donation to the MKC fund, so I decided to give it all to WWF since it was small.

Lives for gear
I'm not sure which is worse, to live in a country that has to deal constantly with vegetation loss due to extream heat, or in a country with vegetation loss due to human greed, as its the case with my country, Romania. Sorry for being off-topic, good luck with the fundraiser!
