Bushfires

Bin on fire



I'm sure most of you know about the Bushfires in Victoria and how completely horrid the last few days have been. I've been keeping my eye on The Age website all weekend for updates, this story from The Australian really highlighted how frightening it must have been for people so close to the fires. My fear of the fires is always worsened by the fact that my Dad is a CFA volunteer and is always called up to man a strike team.

If you want to help out in any way, the Red Cross website has information on donating. They have a bank account set up, so if you are in Australian and have internet banking, making a donation is really easy.

An Etsy shop has been set up where you can purchase items in which the funds will be donated to the bush fire appeal and the items have free shipping internationally as well. If you have something you make and want to donate send a convo to Felecia.

The picture above was taken on Collins Street on Saturday. Gareth, Hollie and I were driving through the city after leaving Rose Street early due to the heat. I'm sure bins on fire are a common thing but I was quite shocked seeing this.

Hollie has also posted about how you can help the animals affected by the fire, and Pip from Meet Me At Mikes has posted about things you can make to help out.

I have nothing but admiration for your father and the incredible job he volunteers for, I wish you all well and I hope you and yours stay safe and well.

It's wonderful to see the community rallying in support...oh those in the essential services are so admirable...can't imagine how they can keep going...

It really is a tragedy and a half, and it's wonderful to see everyone group together in support and donate their supplies and money, time and love.

It's times like this you realise how generous people really are.

I have been constantly watching the news websites also, it's so upsetting to see the toll rise. I feel so badly for the people who lost everything..
