Lending A Hand


Most of you will have heard about the devastating bushfires that are still raging in south eastern Australia. The stats are sobering – hundreds dead, thousands homeless, and hundreds with horrific burns. There are things that we can do. I know that many people do not have the means to provide financial support. But for those who can please visit the Bushfire Appeal Shop and make a purchase or donate some items. Please be patient and visit often as permission has only just been granted from etsy admin to go ahead with the shop and there is a huge backlog of items to upload.

All of us though can do something else. Please take a few moments to send loving healing thoughts to those in need. I have no doubt that this can make a difference.

I just posted a very similar sentiment to your last paragraph on my blog. I agree wholeheartedly. Sending our quiet healing energy out into the world is as important as all the other tangible actions that we take right now.

i think so many aussies are blogging about this – it's such a shocking/tragic/hard to fathom event. and bloggers all over are being so communal about it which is very heartwarming.

Hey Harriet said...

This shop is doing great! Items are selling like crazy and a lot of money has been raised all ready. The support for the Bushfire Appeal Shop from both Etsy sellers & buyers has been fantastic!

The images we have seen in the U.S. of your terrible fires
are truly heartbreaking.
