As many people know Australia has been devastated by floods on two sides of the continent. Flooding in Queensland, Victoria and North Western Australia (Gascoyne Region).
The Queensland Premier's Appeal Information can be found here or through Red Cross here.
The Victorian Flood Appeal information can be found through the Red Cross here.
Details of The Lord Mayor's Distress Relief Fund for the Gascoyne & Mid-West can be found here.
I have come across a couple of other ways people can help.
On Australia Day 26th January - Domino's Pizza will donate $1 from each pizza sold to the appeal in that state.
More info from your local Domino's Store. There is a small news item about it here.
Crafters can get involved : Sarah London is organising a Crochet along to make granny squares into blankets.
Buyers can get involved: Etsy is having a flood appeal where people have donated items to be sold for the appeal.
Reader's can become involved: FableCroft has released a limited edition eBook version of it's anthology, coincidentally named "After the Rain". This is available until 15th February 2010. There is a news article about it here.
My thoughts are with these people and their families as well as those who have passed during this terrible time.
If anyone has other ideas they have come across, please add in the comments section.
