This is for all the brave men and women out there fighting the fires in Victoria. The women and men making the sandwiches to feed the firefighters, the people taking in their neighbours and stray animals lost in the maelstrom. The acts of bravery by many to come to the aid of a fellow human being.
This is for communities in mourning, for their homes, their livelihoods and their loved ones lost in the fires. This is for the strength and nobility of purpose of so very many who are doing everything possible to contain the terror. You are all amazing.
For those of us at a distance feeling helpless there are good posts here, here and here about donations. I also wonder whether Australian crafters might be able to band together to auction items as a fundraiser? Just a thought, I'd certainly be willing to contribute.
