People Need Our Help

I was going to do a post about the lovely day I had.

But after viewing the news reports about the devastating bush fires that swept Victoria yesterday I can't bring myself to discuss my insignificant little life when so many have lost not only everything they own, but in many tragic cases, those they loved.

If you are able, I urge you to donate to the Australian Red Cross to assist giving families back some basic supplies so they can continue living in the short term, and consider the massive task of re-building their lives.

If you are in Australia, call 1800 811 700 or you can also donate from anywhere around the world (including Aus) at http://www.redcross.org.au/

Hug your loved ones. Tell those that matter most how much they mean to you. Be thankful for what you have. Look after those who aren't as fortunate. Be safe. Be well.

The whole situation is so awful. I couldn't believe the stories I heard on the news. :(

I just feel so heart-sick about it all.

One of my colleagues has lost 2 friends and the stories emerging are just awful.

Well said darling, I'm still reeling from the current death toll. It's horrendous and so evil to consider they are all the result of arson. Horrible!

I hope you and yours are safe and well.
