Australia Wide Appeal

We are all social creatures, we watch the news and when something horrible happens we react.

Over the weekend Victoria was hit with bushfires. It is still not known whether they were deliberately lit or whether the wind and heat caused the fire to sweep through towns and homes. Here is just one of the more recent news stories about the fire.

Over 100 people have died, hundreds have lost their homes and the rest of us are donating and giving blood.

I've donated some money to the Red Cross and I plan to donate blood as well.

A tragedy like this, puts things into perspective.

HOW TO DONATE - The 2009 Victoria Bushfire Appeal Fund through the Red Cross.

redcross.org.au or The Salvation Army appeal for families: salvationarmy.org.au
