Getting your parents onto social media can be an expensive, but worthy, project as Byng Street Cafe and Local Store owner Jeremy Norris has discovered.
Mr Norris agreed to match all the donations he received from customers toward the bushfire victims' relief fund.
He said when his parents Caroline and John Ford from Albury saw the project on the cafe's Facebook page his mum contacted him to donate $500 to the cause. Which meant he had to find another $500 to match it.
However, he said he was happy to do it to contribute to such a worthy cause.
"It's Australia at the moment. We just thought we needed to chip in and do our bit," he said.
He said his mum had only recently started to use social media.
Byng Street customers, and Mrs Ford, donated $1288.50 and when matched by Mr Norris brought the total to $2577.
Mr Norris said close friends had lost a house in the fires near Batemans Bay.
Omar by Academy coffee shop has raised $2740 for fire relief.
The store gave all its coffee proceeds from Monday sales this week to the cause.
A donation jar is also available at the store for customers.
Racine Bakery is concentrating its fire relief funds toward the WIRES animal rescue service.
It has raised $935 after donating $1 from every coffee sold last week.
You can still make a donation at Racine with a jar set up to receive more funds for WIRES.
