This has been a really tragic event to happen in the history of Australia of natural disasters, sadly most of the fires were deliberately lit last Saturday February 7th, 2009, and still arsonists are going around lighting fires after all the carnage, very sad for whoever is doing this that they value life so little. Everyday I've been watching the news reports and although I don't know of anyone directly affected by this, I have been in tears watching the news reports and praying for the survivors and those who have lost loved ones and those who are working amongst it all. It will be a long road to recovery for all involved not only in Australia but around the world.
Personally I was thinking how I could do something via my crafting and I thought I'd make some cards to send to the Red Cross with postage on the envelopes so the victims can use them when they are ready. I would be happy to do this on behalf of any of you out there who would like to help this way by collecting all the cards and sending it in one parcel to them.
Here are some links to stories on the bushfire, this one in particular is of Sam the koala who turned out to be a girl, so its good that Sam is a girl and boys name.
Here is the video of it's first encounter with the volunteer firefighter who found her
