Bushfire bouquets.

January 10, 2015

There’s the wonderful sound of heavy rain, and with it the welcome respite from the scorching heat that we have had to endure for all too many days…

My local followers will, of course, share my gratitude to all those dedicated and selfless professional and part-time fire-fighters who battled tirelessly for days on end to save South Australia from one of our worst bushfires in many a decade.

My overseas followers, of whom I am gathering a surprising number, can only imagine the trauma and exhaustion that goes with facing up to the ferocious, fast-moving flames that have destroyed almost thirty homes, countless farm buildings, tens of thousands of hectares of bushland and pasture, and helpless wildlife.

In recent years Australia has been subjected to many instances of natural disasters, and we our dedicated volunteers a huge debt. Nothing can adequately recompense them, or those who lost everything to flames and floodwaters

But we can at least minimise their financial  cost by donating to one of the various authorised charities who have responded. If you haven’t done so already , now’s the time to dig deep.

The address?

Disaster Relief and Recovery,  Australia Red Cross, GPO Box 2957, Melbourne 8060.

    Donating to Red Cross Bushfire Appeal? Why not do it at your local Coles Supermarket, who are committed to matching all donations dollar for dollar. A very worthwhile cause.
