@woftam not sure if you have a red cross down there, or what, but if you can put together a list of groups of people that are helping the fires… would help. I like knowing I donate direct… so maybe it will help others too… Stay wet Simon!! <3

While this is not a real picture it is map of all the fires in the last 12months in Australia. The super bright ones on the right are currently burning plus a bunch more.

It feels a bit like that @SmokyBlue…

Still a lot of summer to go too…

We all just have to be prepared, stay vigilant and try to stay positive!

The generosity of people around the world is amazing and not enough praise can be given to those who are dealing with this on the “front lines” at every level.
US, Canadian and NZ firefighters too - huge thanks :pray: to all who are assisting, whether in person, in donating or just keeping us in their thoughts :hugs:

@woftam Would you have any interest in writing up a great blog post for this that I can share on my website? I’ll put something together if you don’t, but I think coming from your part of the world you could do this more justice?

Thank you all for thinking of us and our bizarre menagerie of animals down here.
It’s hard to look after them all seen as most of our continent is uninhabited, and it’s not easy to get around the place, especially when it’s on fire!
