I had a question in the comments section (from my friend Bragger) a few days ago about how people can help those hit by the terrible Queensland floods. I have been meaning to address it for a couple of days…
While the images taken here at Granite Glen are confronting for us…
…the sheer scale and scope of this rural tragedy is far more than I can wrap my head around.
Ten people have died.
An area the size of France and Germany combined – bigger than the entire state of New South Wales – has been inundated.
That’s a lot of country.
Time is featuring images and stories from this event. You know it’s big when Time publishes it. (George Clooney in Sudan is the following featured gallery!)
People are not only facing having their homes filled with mud and debris, but snakes are busy finding the high ground too (and they don’t care if they have to share it with humans!).
So as I hunt through our wardrobes here for clothing I can donate to those who have lost EVERYTHING in this natural disaster, I have decided to add a link to my sidebar here for those wanting to donate financially to those worst affected by this crisis. It looks like this and will take you to The Premier’s Flood Appeal.
We may or may not qualify for the assistance being offered. We will struggle to get things operational again anytime soon – but so many are so much worse off than us.
My heart is with them all.
Please note the two aerial flood photos are not taken by me – I have tried to caption them correctly but the font is in white and not showing!
They should read:
