Organize Yourself to Help the Fire Victims

The devastating recent Bush fires across Australia have stirred so many into action -donating their time and money to help those affected. I am sure you are part of this group of wonderful Australians too. In case you weren't aware, many Community Houses / Community Centres are becoming 'collection points' for donations, so if you have one near you, then grab a bag and put in as many of the following items that are in desperate need for all the displaced families. I am off to drop some items off now.

Items such as: toiletries - tampons, pads, nappies, shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, brushes, new underwear of all sizes, non perishables, new electrical appliances - kettles, toasters, fry pans - if you have good working order appliances these are needed it just means they then need to be checked and tagged, non perishable foods, life long milk, clothing - though they have large amounts already donated.

Remember: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead

Having a Fire Plan in place is crucial, so take this time to think about Organizing one if you haven't.
