On Friday as I finished working for nine days straight I thought about today & how much I would enjoy blogging about my weekend as I had decided to have a weekend away.
However that has now changed & I will post that at another date.
I am unable to post of my fun filled weekend when Australia has gone through days of absolute heart wrench & loss.
The Australian Bush fires are shaping up to be the worst in history. The Red Cross are running an Appeal & if you are in a position to be able to help please please do.
Donations can be made at The Red Cross, National Australia Bank, Commonwealth Banks & Bunnings Hardware's there are possibly other places to they are just the ones I know about.
When I contacted the The Red Cross they said they had put out an urgent request for more blood donors. However they said at this time no donated goods please as their op shops are full and they need the volunteers to attend to more valuable things at this time.
The last report I heard was that 131 lives had been lost, and they are saying this number will continue to climb as the fireman are able to move into areas to search that they have been unable to so far. It has also been reported over 750 homes have been lost.
Please send your prayers & blessing to the people of these affected regions and to the emergency services & volunteers that have no doubt left their families to help fellow Australians.
