My heart goes out to those who lost loved ones and their homes.... as news came in from each of our relatives that they are alright, I couldn't help feeling more anxious for those complete strangers who are missing and heartbreak for those who have lost all that they had.
I feel so blessed that I live amongst such resilience people, pulling their efforts together to help one another. It is going to a long road to repair and rebuild but comforts in seeing the enormous efforts from so many people so far further indicate what amazing people Australians are.
To date, I have only been able to participate in cash donation but looking into other ways to help.. I feel so blessed that I work for a company generous enough to match their employees donations dollar for dollar.
This is the site to donate directly to the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal and there are a few crafty blogland fundraising like QLD Flood Appeal Auctions and Bristyle's Handmade Heart beats for QLD Flood affected communities
