Australia, the beautiful country in which I live, is currently experiencing the most devastating bush-fire season on record. Lives have been lost, hundreds of homes have been destroyed and thousands of Australia’s native animals burnt alive. The worst is not over.
I won’t try to pretend this record is full of hope – it’s not – it is a reflection of the reality of the situation.
It is during such crises though that we see the best in people. Our firefighters (many of them volunteers) are doing incredible things, risking their own lives day after day whilst battling exhaustion, to try to save lives and property. Communities are coming together to help each-other and those who have lost homes.
Disaster relief and recovery help though is desperately needed. You can help my purchasing this MP3 download (please feel free to donate more than the minimum price if you feel able). All money raised will be given to the Red Cross where it will:
- Support people at evacuation centres and recovery hubs, and
- Provide emergency assistance (including cash grants to people who have lost homes in these bushfires)
Prices can be changed to the currency of your choice after adding to your cart.
Your support is much appreciated!
