Every Little Bit Helps  

Australia is experiencing some crazy weather at the moment - here in Perth we have had our driest and hottest summer ever, and it isn't even over yet. Bushfires have just taken out homes south of our city - the most infuriating thing is they were deliberately lit.

But what is happening in Queensland at the moment is absolutely heartbreaking. The heavy rains and subsequent flooding have rendered an area the size of Texas (or France and Germany combined) underwater - and it's going to get worse.

So, please, if you have any spare cash, donate to either of the sites below:

The offical Queensland government flood appeal website

And let's not forget our furry and feathered friends, from where the above banner is taken.

Thank you.

Well, I don't think I can claim it on my taxes, not 100% sure but every bit helps. It is just awful and I can't imagine the devastation. Oh and people who start fires .... I just don't get it. Mojo to everyone who needs it.

Plus they required an Australian postal code so I wonder if it will end up on Kris's doorstep somehow.
