bushfire appeal

it’s so easy to sit here in my little house and not think much about the rest of the world. some days i don’t even hear any news. but not even i can have missed the bushfire news and i just wanted to put a few links up and ask you to help if you feel inspired.

a lot of craftspeople are organising sales and giveaways to raise money for the australian red cross:

handmade help – list a handmade item for sale on ebay and donate profits OR buy one of the items for sale!
serendipity – entry in a giveaway for every donation made
trashcan – another giveaway

or you can go directly to the australian red cross website to donate.

there is some disagreement as to whether sending physical items is helpful (in that it can take a lot of time and money to distribute them, and cash is probably more useful) but in case you’re interested, the toy society are organising a handmade toy donation.

hope there’s something there you can help with!
