Can You Help ?



I'm sure everyone has heard all about the awful fires in Australia - are you wondering what you can do to help?
Apart from making donations to the Red Cross, there are plenty of things happening across Blogland, including an auction over at Melly & Me and there is a list at Meet Me At Mikes.
One thing that I'm going to do is send a couple of handmade toys to The Toy Society .
I've got an address where people from outside of Australia can send toys to, so if you would like to send something please let me know and I'll give you the address. Even if it's just one little toy it will help.......

It's all so horrible! I'm sending something to the Toy Society too. Have you seen Trashy's raffle? If we all do a little something then I'm sure it will help.

You guys are all so generous! I'm sure that the Victorian Bushfire Victims will love your help! :)

that is a great idea. I heard on the TV/radio that money is going to be a huge problem, so I thought I might do that.

I will look into that now, thanks for sharing!

That is so kind, Lisa. It's heartbreaking when they talk to kids who've lost best friends, teachers, and all certainty in their lives.The enormous outpouring of compassion from people all over the world must play such an important part in their ability to hold onto a sense of hope.
