I feel so sad, and so does Kim. I can’t bare to watch much more of the carnage on the news, mainly because of information overload. I do listen to ABC radio, which has much better coverage without all the media sensationalism. Just the facts, and good ways to help out.
I helped out today by donating $50 per pay for the next four pay days to the Australian Red Cross bushfire appeal. My employer matches my donation, dollar for dollar, which I think is fantastic. I have heard that money is most needed right now, because there have just been overwhelming donations of clothing that the affected areas have enough.
I feel so helpless, but I hope that the couple of hundred helps out.
My heart goes out to all those affected, and a mighty thankyou to all the emergency services teams, who must be very tired by now. You have made us all very, very proud.
