Flood Disaster


I haven’t blogged for awhile considering that I like to blog every week! My home city Brisbane and state Queensland in Australia has been devastated by floods. I am very lucky that the suburb where I and my family live, has escaped. The community here in Queensland are pulling together and are doing an amazing job to help their fellow citizens. The volunteering effort is huge and will grow.

The Queensland Government has launched an appeal to help fellow Queenslanders affected by the recent floods. Many communities have been devastated. Some families have lost everything. You can help make a difference by donating to the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal.

At this time, the Queensland Government is inviting financial donations only. Unfortunately this appeal cannot accept donations of goods or services.
