Oz Bushfire Appeal

I'm sure most of you are aware, it's truly difficult to not be, of the terrible fires that have swept through parts of Australia near Melbourne. I was in shock when I first saw it on the news. It just seemed to incredible. And it is. And it is also very sad.

In order to help out those who have lost so much, an appeal has been set up through the Etsy community to raise money. A special Etsy shop has been launched by the Dust team (Down Under Street Team). It is called OzBushfireAppeal and in it are items that have been donated by other Etsy sellers to help this cause. Sales from all items will be donated to the Australian Red Cross every Friday.

Please do have a stop by and think about purchasing. New items are being added around the clock.

My thoughts go out to all those affected.

It is heartbreaking, especially to know he fires were started on purpose - so sad!

It is terrible, we had a very close forest fire last year, you can't do anything except crying.
I've donated too, and will blog about is too so that more people can be aware of it.
