Proceeds from the shirts will go towards Australia Zoo. The organization is giving medical help and rehabilitating to sick, injured and displaced wildlife in the country.

“Australia is being ravaged by deadly fires, and we just feel so helpless. We put out a new merch line + donating all proceeds to charity. Let’s do our part to make sure everyone, the environment, plus all of these kangaroos & koala bears are safe,” the band wrote.

Mark Hoppus tweeted shortly after they posted the shirts up for sale to give a quick report to drive sales up even further. He says they’ve raised over $20,000 as of the first 24 hours it went online.

Both of the shirts can be purchased here.
