Giveaway / goneaway

Further to yesterday post, and I'm sure you are all aware by now of the various ways you can help. I just wanted to mention the blog that Cindy has set up

Photobucket

Here, she is show casing the ebay auctions that people are running to raise money for the people affected by the bushfires.


If Ebay is not your thing, Silly Gilly has kindly offered to take charge and list thing for people who can't get to it themselves.

I did mention earlier that I was planning a giveaway soon .....well the giveaway has up and gone away...


This little girl, Matilda, destined for the giveaway will now be making her way over to Silly Gilly to be auctioned to help raise money instead.

and at work, as I rattled on about the ways people can help, one boy asked if I would teach him to make a toy so he could send it to the Toy Society.......... a chorus of kids joined in and now Annie and I have a big plan.

In their own ways so many many people are doing so much.

and that's kind of wonderful isn't it?

  11. What a lovely thing to do Jodie.

    If we can find one positive out of this dreadful tragedy it is the kindness and generosity being shown by all Australians.

  13. You go matilda!! The past 3 or 4 days (apart from tragic),have made me so proud to be an Aussie! The news coverage although a little bit in their faces at times is enough to make you cry, many times over. This tragedy is uniting australians like nothing else in history.
