This country we live in is an AMAZING place - full of amazing scenes and beaches and countryside...and more recently unprecedented devastation. I dont think you can live in Queensland and not known someone affected by this tragedy. What is more amazing is how willing we are to get in and help in any way we can. You feel so helpless - you make your $$ donation but it really doesnt seem like much when you see the footage of what people are up against!!
Over 75% of our state has been affected in some way by floods. But there are a couple of ways we can help those affected by the floods. Kim Archer is conducting a special online workshop where all proceeds will go the Premiers Flood Relief Appeal. The workshop is only $5! You can sign up here. I have!!
You can also help by getting creative. The Rising Waters Flood Appeal for Crafters are taking donations of scrap pages (minus the photo) that will then be sent to the flood victims for them to create their own scrapbook albums. Head over to the blog to find out the details on where to send your pages.
Its so hard to watch but I like the fact that each of us in our own little ways can help to make a difference!! Makes you proud to be an Australian!!
I have started creating several pages so far and will do some more in the next few days. It's a great way to use all those bits of scrap paper! I really hope you can help out too.
I HAVE MOVED!
