the queensland floods...

12 dead, 51 missing - grave fears held for 9...

My thoughts are with all those in Queensland and Brisbane right now - the ferocity of the flooding, and the scale of the disaster, is truly devastating

As many other bloggers have now done, I want to ask all my readers, if you are able, to consider donating to the flood relief appeal here - some people have lost absolutely everything, and every donation makes a difference

  1. I saw that photo online today.
    Just terrible what's happening up there.

    We donated on Sunday when the telethon was on.

  2. I'm so heartbroken... can't watch the news anymore. I've organized a morning tea at work with a gold coin donation premise... I hope lots of people come. I feel like it's all that I can do. Sigh....

  3. That photo is so true of Aussies rallying together.

    It is so very sad :(
