Morning Craftsters,

I'm currently away from home doing some work in Queensland's flooded Gulf country... as well as the people in the Gulf who've lost so much and will be without an income for so long, there's also major floods on the Queensland coast (same wet season, different region) which have also caused a vast amount of damage.  And then there's the terrible, terrible, bushfires which have destroyed entire towns and killed so many, as well as left so many homeless and with nothing.

There's already an artists' fundraiser for the fires being discussed here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=292131.0

And now, to what we can do...

To donate to the Red Cross bushfire appeal: http://www.redcross.org.au/vic/services_emergencyservices_victorian-bushfires-appeal-2009.htm
And Red Cross flood appeal: http://www.redcross.org.au/QLD/services_disresp_nqfloods2009.htm

If anyone wants to donate items, I'm happy to act as a receiving point and send them down (or up - depending on whether you donate to fire or flood) to where they're needed.  Just drop me a PM if you're interested... and don't worry if it takes me a few days to get back to you - the floods are keeping me busy!

No longer online regularly - if you need to contact me, try tweeting @artsieaspie.  Sorry for the inconvenience!
